Despite various attempts by movie studios, it’s a well known fact that almost all popular movies leak on BitTorrent. The frequency of leaks is further increased in the Oscar awards season when lots of screener, review and preview copies of Oscar nominated movies become publicly available on FTP sites, BitTorrent trackers, one click hosting sites (RapidShare, etc) and so on. This post speaks of the Oscar 2009 project by BTARENA which brings together all Oscar nominated movies of 2009 which have so far leaked on the internet.
You probably already know about BTArena.org, a popular release blog which provides information about latest scene and p2p releases along with torrent/one click hosting links, trailers, NFO, etc . Unlike most other release Blogs, BTARENA hosts links, .torrent files, video etc on their own servers (links.btarena.org, tracker.btarena.org, video.btarena.org).
Coming back to the Oscar 2009 Project, it’s basically a sorted index of all 2009 Oscar nominated movies that have so far leaked on the internet. Associated with each movie is a torrent link, one lick hosting links, video sample and movie trailer. Download and torrent links point to recent DVD Screener (DVDSCR), DVDRip and R5 releases by scene/p2p groups such as ARROW, DoNE, DiAMOND, NEPTUNE, etc. Torrents are tracked by public trackers such as The Pirate Bay – no registration is required to download.
BTARENA have already managed to add all Oscar nominated movies to their project by now. There are however some missing releases under ‘Best Documentary Feature’, ‘Best Documentary Short Subject’,'Best Foreign Language Film of the Year’ and ‘Best Animated Short Film’ categories. If you somehow happen to have access to these releases, you can let them know.
