The DVD sets of "The Muppet Show", "Fraggle Rock", "Dinosaurs" and the Muppet-filled first season of "Saturday Night Live" have all been honored with nominations in the fourth annual TV DVD Awards - but they'll need your help to win!
The TV DVD Awards are a prestigious industry award honoring the best in television shows on DVD. A blue ribbon panel of judges rated each release of the past year; and has selected the slate of nominees based on their overall DVD treatment, including program content, bonus materials and packaging. More than 160 submissions were considered – with only the top four in each of 17 categories coming out on top.
The ultimate winners of the award, however, are based on an online consumer vote. The polls opened today and will close on October 26th; the winners will be announced on November 12 during a big gala dinner and reception. So please, support the DVDs you love and take a few minutes to surf over to the voting site and rock vote!
"Fraggle Rock: Complete Third Season" was nominated in the "Best 1980s Series" category. "The Muppet Show: Season 2" gained two nominations – one for "Best 1970s Series" and another for "Best Children's Series". Additionally, "Dinosaurs: The Complete Third and Fourth Seasons" was also nominated for "Best Children's Series" and "Saturday Night Live – The Complete First Season" was also nominated for "Best 1970s Series".
