oscar awards, holds, and true grit
March 3, 2011
so the academy awards were last sunday, and it was a snoozefest according to all accounts. as is usual following the oscars the holds pile up on the various nominees and award winners, and some films get out of whack on our holds to copy ratio of 5 to 1.
we regularly run a holds purchase alert and purchase additional copies, so rest assured that if a film is wildly out of whack on the holds ratio, we’ll be adding copies very soon.
what’s up with true grit?
lots of our customers are placing holds on true grit in our catalog and though the john wayne version is one of my all time favorite films, i imagine many of them are expecting the jeff bridges/coen brothers film.
almost all the holds have been placed remotely by our customers buton the off chance that customers ask you about the film, here’s the straight poop.
- there’s no release date for the film as of yet though videoeta is reporting it may be available sometime in june.
- as soon as a firm release date is announced we’ll be placing an order.
