    Studios seek Oscar bounce for DVD releases

    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - No sooner were the Academy Award nominations announced last week than the studios began slotting nominees for DVD release, in the hopes that an Oscar win March 5 would translate to higher sales.
    "We see Oscar time as a huge opportunity to provide consumers with yet another opportunity to cast their votes before they see the official winner on television," said Craig Kornblau, president of Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
    But the day after the nominations were announced, the studio wasted no time in issuing a news release setting a February 28 DVD date for "Pride & Prejudice."
    The same day, Warner Home Video also issued an Oscar-themed press release, highlighting Academy noms for four of its upcoming DVD releases: "Tim Burton's Corpse Bride" (January 31), "North Country" (February 21), best picture nominee "Good Night, and Good Luck" (March 14) and "Syriana" (April 18).
    A day later, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment chimed in with a press directive of its own, announcing that best picture nominee "Capote" and original screenplay contender "The Squid and the Whale" will be out March 21 on DVD.
