Duff, Hamill top DVD Exclusive kudos

Exclusive video clips from 'Fockers,' 'Incredibles' shown

Hilary Duff, Jennifer Tilly, Mark Hamill, Sid Caesar, Jonathan Winters and the late James Coburn were among the big winners at the annual DVD Exclusive Awards Tuesday night. Aisha Tyler hosted the event.

“Hilary Duff: The Girl Can Rock” was the winner in the new category of overall DVD, music program. Duff appeared to accept the nod as well as a special Triple Threat Award for the DVD success of her TV series, music programs and movies. Program also included four world-premiere video clips from upcoming DVD special editions of “Meet the Fockers” and “The Incredibles,” as well as the controversial puppet sex scene edited from “Team America: World Police” and the first look at Disney’s upcoming summer straight-to-DVD toon “Tarzan 2,” with the debut of an original song by Phil Collins.

Hamill’s haul

Hamill was a multiple threat himself Tuesday night, winning as one of the producers of his pet project, the live-action straight-to-DVD pic “Comic Book: The Movie,” from Creative Light and Miramax, and sharing in the acceptance for “Star Wars Trilogy,” which took the prize for overall DVD, classic film.

Two of Hamill’s “Comic Book” co-stars, Caesar and Winters, tied for supporting actor in a DVD premiere movie. Each provided video clip acceptance speeches, as did Larry David, who won the inaugural Johnny Carson Award for TV DVD performer following a video tribute to Carson.

The first season of David series “Seinfeld” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” were among the five nominees for TV program on DVD kudos. “Seinfeld” won that award, which was presented by Bob Newhart and accepted by show producers and Jerry Seinfeld’s managers Howard West and George Shapiro, as well as DVD producers Glenn Padnick, Morgan Sackett and Darin Henry.

Coburn won the award for actor in a DVD premiere movie for his final performance in Miramax release “American Gun.” His co-star and fellow nominee Barbara Bain accepted on his behalf.

Tilly won the actress award for Screen Media and Universal’s “Relative Evil.” She accepted the kudo in person, as did Natasha Henstridge, who won for supporting actress in MGM’s “Species III.”

Buena Vista on top

Disney’s “The Lion King 1½” was the evening’s big winner, with five awards, including animated DVD premiere movie and director (Bradley Raymond).

Disney’s Buena Vista Home Entertainment, which distributes Disney and Miramax DVDs, picked up half of the 24 category awards, most from the DVD premiere movie categories.

New Line’s “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King Special Extended DVD Edition” drew kudos for overall DVD, new movie, the third win in a row for a “Rings” pic. The DVD won three awards overall, the same number as “Star Wars Trilogy.”

The dinner event, created and produced by Daily Variety sister publication DVD Exclusive, was held at the Annenberg Building at the California Science Center in Los Angeles.

Program included a special tribute to the tsunami relief efforts of the American Red Cross presented to representative Marlee Matlin. More than $15,000 in donations for the Red Cross was raised from ticket sales.

Writer-producer Bob Gale presented the annual DVD Exclusive Pioneer Award to DVD producer Laurent Bouzereau as well as video congrats to Bouzereau from Steven Spielberg.

Other winners included “Capturing the Friedmans” (deleted scenes, outtakes and bloopers); “Shrek 2” (games and interactivities); and “Bionicle 2: Legends of Metru Nui” (visual effects); “Mickey, Donald & Goofy in The Three Musketeers” (original song); and “Mickey’s Twice Upon a Christmas” (original score).
