The holidays are upon us, which means one thing: Time to watch screeners.
Since many awards voters are busy working people, they may have a lot of films to catch up on. Every year, awards-giving organizations such as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences urge voters to see contenders in theaters. But it’s an open secret in Hollywood that screeners are often the method of choice.
Many of the films in contention will play well on a home screen, but even better in a theater. So if you are a voter with limited time — or simply a consumer with a preference for VOD — try to get to the multiplex for at least a handful of films. If you can’t do that, feel free to see them on small screen; just make sure you see them.
Here are 5 bigscreen priorities:
