SAG Award voters just received DVDs of “The Butler” and “August: Osage County.” Previously, they got screeners of “Captain Phillips,” “Blue Jasmine,” “12 Years a Slave,” “Dallas Buyers Club” and “Enough Said.”
A campaign rep for Sony Pictures says that they’ll soon get one for “American Hustle,” too. Better hurry: voting ends Jan. 17, which is one day before the awards ceremony.
Back on Dec. 18, voters got emails with instructions on how to download digital screeners on iTunes for “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. Universal has no plans to ship “Rush,” according to an inside source. No word yet on whether Warner Bros. is shipping “Gravity.”
