2011-12 Academy Screeners and other freebies received


For new Academy Screeners in the 2014-15 year click here.
 
Note:  None of these screeners are for sale, so please don't ask!   I provide this list primarily to indicate which movies the studios are interested in promoting for Oscar consideration, and also as a handy reference guide for other Academy members.  The Academy and the studios expressly forbid the sale, transfer or duplication of these videos, conditions to which I have always gladly adhered and will continue to respect.  I'm grateful to receive these videos for reference purposes; but as far as I am concerned nothing can compare with actually viewing the films on the big screen in theaters.   I would urge you all please to support the industry by doing just that!  (thanks to a loyal reader for suggesting certain changes in this message which I have duly incorporated.)
