The Motion Picture Assoc. of America has ruled that Hollywood studios can no longer send Oscar voters videos or DVDs of films vying for awards consideration. MPAA President Jack Valenti says some of last year's screeners were copied and illegally pirated. Now, Academy members will have to get up off their lazy butts and go to a movie theater. And me? I may actually have to buy my family Christmas gifts this year.
