Your Screener Is Downloading

9 February 2011 5:00 AM, PST | | See recent Backstage news »

Scott Larose, a member of the Screen Actors Guild, the Directors Guild of America, and the Writers Guild of America, was excited when he heard he would be able to watch several awards screeners—copies of nominated films made available to voters—on iTunes prior to this year's SAG Awards. He's a busy single dad of a 7-year-old, but he wanted to know whom to vote for. He turned on his Mac laptop and opened up iTunes, ready to watch "Conviction."Seventeen hours later, the download was complete. "I was really happy to finally be able to watch it," Larose said, "and it looked beautiful, but having to download something for 17 hours is ludicrous. And I have At&T high-speed Internet. It was really frustrating." He joked, "It took me 138 hours to download '127 Hours'!"This was the first time awards screeners for feature films were made available on iTunes for SAG members. »
