I bet many of you feel that this should happen. Film Guard really does work well and my customers all love it. Whats the process one must go through to get a technical award for an idea, product, or invention? Who has to nominate or what is the process to compete for a Technical Oscar?

I do agree with you that Film Guard does deserve recognition. But it seems that technical innovations have to age ten to twenty years before they get noticed. Why, maybe because they didn't pull in 100 million at the box office, I don't know. Any way, I think it requires a member of the academy to submit this for consideration.

...and since they only watch their movies after they are sent to them by the Academy on VHS and DVD, they will never get to know its wonders.

Here is information about the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Scientific and Technical Awards procedure:

Any company or individual who believes their technical development merits consideration by the Academy should write them for an application.

Here is a list of this year's sci/tech awards:

If the #&$^&#@% Christie Ultramittent can get a technical Oscar, then Film-Guard should be a shoo-in!!
