Trio tapped for Variety Home Entertainment Hall of Fame

Sarandos, Clark, Blu-ray Assn. to be honored Dec. 6

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos, Anchor Bay Entertainment prexy Bill Clark and the Blu-ray Disc Assn. have been selected for induction into the Variety Home Entertainment Hall of Fame.

Kudos, which mark the 30th anniversary of the Hall of Fame, will be handed out Dec. 6 at the Beverly Hills Hotel. This is the first year that Variety has assumed responsibility for the awards, which had been run by Video Business.

Variety has expanded the scope of the awards, which recognize the best in traditional packaged video, to cover achievements in all home entertainment media and distribution formats — including DVD, Blu-ray, digital and videogames.

Sarandos has led content acquisition for Netflix since 2000, while Clark launched Anchor Bay’s theatrical unit and oversees all aspects of worldwide sales, marketing, acquisitions and product development. BDA is an industry consortium that has played a key role in establishing the Blu-ray high-definition video format.

“Each of these inductees exemplifies the vitality of home entertainment as it evolves from purely physical distribution to a revenue-expanding mix of physical, digital, mobile and other models,” said Linda Buckley-Bruno, publishing director of Variety.

Ticket-sale proceeds from the dinner and awards show will benefit Entertainment AIDS Alliance.
