Voting Is Open for the 2024 Home Entertainment Media Play Awards Media Play News

February 22, 2024

Consumer voting has begun for the 2024 Home Entertainment Media Play Awards. This is the 14th year of the annual home entertainment industry honors, and the seventh year they have been presented by Media Play News.

Through March 31, film and TV fans and home entertainment enthusiasts can visit MediaPlayNews.com/awards/ballot to select their favorite home entertainment releases of 2023, as nominated by studios, distributors and home entertainment industry professionals.

The awards cover a wide array of home entertainment options, including streaming, from SVOD to AVOD and FAST; DVD, Blu-ray Disc and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray; premium video-on-demand (PVOD) and digital sellthrough. 

The results of the consumer vote will be combined with ballots submitted by a panel of expert judges.

“Best of show” winners are then selected from among all eligible submissions for Packaged-Media Title of the Year, TV Disc Release of the Year and Best Blu-ray Disc. A “Fan-Favorite” trophy also will be awarded for the single title receiving the most consumer votes. Judges may also present awards based on special merit.

Winners will be announced April 18.

Last year’s Home Entertainment Media Play Awards saw Paramount Home Entertainment’s The Godfather Trilogy 50 Years Collector’s Edition earn the top prize, voted Title of the Year, while Paramount’s Top Gun: Maverick took nine awards, including Fan-Favorite Title of the Year.
