Availability Of Recently Oscar Nominated Films On DVD

Inglourious Basterds.  The Hurt Locker.  Up.  Up In The Air.  District 9.  Coraline.  Julie & Julia.  Star Trek.  Transformers:  Rise Of The Fallen.  Bright Star.  Il Divo.  Paris 36.  Coco Over Chanel.  Food, Inc.  The Cove.  Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince.  In The Loop.  A Serious Man.  Precious.
What two things do these 19 titles have in common?  They were all nominated for Oscars this year and you can see them now on DVD. 
The 82nd annual Academy Awards have come and gone.  All that remains are the memories of a very fine ceremony and a whole bunch of films most of us haven’t even seen yet.  While we scour the racks of our local video stores seeking out these features (or hunt for them online), more Oscar nominated titles are coming our way shortly.  Here’s a list of what you can expect to find in the next two months:
The Princess & The Frog (March 16)
The Blind Side (March 23)
Fantastic Mr. Fox (March 23)
Sherlock Holmes (March 30)
An Education (March 30)
The Lovely Bones (April 20)
The Young Victoria (April 20)
Avatar (April 22)
The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus (April 27)
Nine (May 4)
The Messenger (May 18)
The White Ribbon (June 29)
No official release dates are available for Which Way Home, A Single Man, The Milk Of Sorrow, Burma VJ, The Secrets In Their Eyes, The Last Station, Invictus, The Most Dangerous Man In America:  Daniel Ellsberg And The Pentagon Papers, Ajami and Crazy Heart, although some of these titles can be pre-ordered on Amazon.  The Secret Of Kells and A Prophet just opened in theatres so their debuts on DVD will most likely happen in the summer.  However, a good number of these films, like Avatar, can still be seen in theatres for the time being.

CORRECTION:  This story originally reported that The White Ribbon would be available April 27th.  Unfortunately, that is no longer true.  The new release date is June 29th.  It can be pre-ordered on Amazon.
