One thought on “Oscar voters get Thanksgiving bounty of screeners

  1. Okay, so screeners are sent out this time of year to Oscar voters and members of the various entertainment unions.
    But why are only a few available to be understood by the deaf?
    More than 90 percent of the DVDs I get are not captioned.
    Insulting at the least and at the most rather negligent, am I right?
