January 2013

Well… it’s that time again, folks.  Time for The Digital Bits to honor and acknowledge the best of Blu-ray Disc from the past year’s crop of excellent releases.

For this year’s awards we’ve decided to strip things down and keep it simple.  We’ve boiled down our awards to just TEN categories, with one BONUS category.  And while many titles could obviously qualify in multiple categories, we’ve decided that if a title wins any category that would disqualify it from winning in others – the idea being that this would allow us to recognize as much great work as possible.  The primary qualification is that each winner must have arrived in stores in the calendar year 2012.  Beyond that, virtually every title was eligible for consideration.  Each member of The Bits voting staff was invited to nominate as many titles as they wished per category and then to select their choice for the very best.  What follows is the result – one winner per category and a handful of titles we also felt deserved special recognition in each.  We hope you enjoy it.
