Looks like Matthew McConaughey and Cate Blanchett may have an early edge at the SAG Awards. Voters just received a DVD screener for “Blue Jasmine” on Christmas Eve and, previously, they got a screener of “Dallas Buyers Club.”
But that doesn’t mean that voters don’t have easy access to other films in contention. Back on Dec. 18, they got emails with instructions on how to download digital screeners on iTunes for contenders from Fox Searchlight and Weinstein Co.: “12 Years a Slave,” “Enough Said.” “The Butler,” “August: Osage County” and “Philomena.” A week or two ago Paramount emailed voters with instructions on how guild voters can watch “Nebraska” on line using its own internal studio system.
We’ll keep you posted on other films being campaigned to membership over the next week or so.
