It’s a busy week on home video, with five major theatrical releases making their way to DVD and Blu-ray. Still, one movie – this year’s best picture Oscar winner – is the unquestioned leader of the pack.

Video Verdict: ‘The Artist,’ ’21 Jump Street,’ ‘Wrath of the Titans,’ ‘Mirror Mirror,’ ‘A Thousand Words’
It’s a big day for movie awards. Not only did the Broadcast Film Critics Association announce the nominees for its annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards today, the Las Vegas Film Critics Society announced the winners of its Sierra Awards. I vote in both groups, so I always like to publicize the winners.
“The Artist” was the big Sierra Awards winner, nabbing five honors, including Best Picture. The male star of the film, Jean Dujardin, picked up Best Actor, and the movie also nabbed Best Score, Best Costume Design and Best Art Direction.
“Hugo” also performed well, winning awards for Best Family Film and Best Film Editing and helping its young star, Asa Butterfield, take the Youth In Film honor.
Following is a complete list of winners, plus the Las Vegas Film Critics Society list of the top 10 films of 2011.
Longtime readers know that I’m a member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association thanks to my affiliation with Alice Radio (96.5 FM in Reno, NV) and Idaho Country (KQFC-FM in Boise, ID). Today our organization released its nominee list for the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, which will be telecast live at 8 p.m. Jan. 12 on VH1. Often, Critics’ Choice award winners go on to nab Oscars, so the nominee list gives you a nice look at the movies that are likely to be players in the coming months.
Martin Scorsese’s charming family film “Hugo” and the beautiful silent-movie “The Artist” led all contenders this year with 11 nominations each. Also toward the top of the pack were “The Help” and “Drive,” each scoring eight nominations.
Following is a complete list of nominees. Winners will be revealed live during the Jan. 12 VH1 broadcast.
