Comedy Business - Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Takes Best Show
The show about nothing dominated the 2006 TV DVD Awards this year as Seinfeld Season five and six TV DVD sets took top honours at the third annual TV DVD Awards on Oct 4. The awards held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Century City, California also honoured "The Odd Couple" star Jack Klugman and "Wild Wild West" tough guy Robert Conrad with life time achievement awards.
The TV DVD Awards co-sponsored by The Digital Entertainment Group, the Entertainment Merchants Association and The Hollywood Report were part of the Home Media Retailing TV DVD 4: Future Channels Conference. The two day B to B conference caters to top studio broadcast executives, DVD producers, television stars from classic TV series and the media.
