You will note that Lucy programs have been nominated in two categories -- one for the 1950s and one for the 1960s! Here's a great way to let the DVD producers know that Lucy is still a big favorite!

Feel free to post a link to this news item on any fan sites or DVD forums and tell your friends to vote!


TV shows on DVD are the fastest-growing sector of the DVD market, and they are forever changing the way we watch TV. Here’s your chance to vote on the best TV DVD releases of the past year! A panel of judges took a look at more than 150 entries submitted by the studios and independent suppliers, released between September 1, 2003, and August 31, 2004, and narrowed the choices down to three nominees in each of the 12 categories. Now we’re asking you to help select the overall winner in each category! Simply click on one of the three nominees in each of the 12 categories and when you’re done press "submit."

A VERY IMPORTANT reminder: please base your decision not on the actual show, but on the DVD TREATMENT—special features, menus, ease of navigation, packaging, sound and picture, etc.

The voting period is September 19 through October 2. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, October 19, during the Second Annual TV DVD Conference at the Century Plaza Hotel & Spa in Century City, California.
