Hail Britannia's Young Victoria giveaway

FedEx just pulled up to my house with two brand-spanking-new DVDs of The Young Victoria, compliments of Sony Pictures, one for me to use for a review, the other to give away to Hail Britannia's readers. I'm chuffed!

I'm so looking forward to watching this movie tonight. I don't get to the movies as often as I like to, and when I do it's to see something my husband and I both agree upon ... and this is probably a film he'd nix. (Although we did see The Devil Wears Prada, and he thought Emily Blunt was wonderful in that.)

So here's the deal for the giveaway. Last week I won boxed sets of BBC America's Survivors from SmittenByBritain and I liked the way Melissa set up her giveaway, so I'm, ahem, borrowing it. You can earn up to three entries in this contest by:

1. Subscribing to Hail Britannia's blog feed with Bloglines, Google Blog Reader, or your preferred blog reader. Just click on the "subscribe" button in the upper right-hand corner of this page. (ETA: If you're already a subscriber, you get a point.)

2. Tweeting this blog post. All you have to do is click the green "retweet" button in the upper right-hand side of this post next to the photo of the DVD.

3. Leaving a comment on this post and letting me know that you've subscribed to Hail Britannia, retweeted the contest/blog post, and/or that you just want to put your name in the hat for the DVD.

The giveaway is open to anyone living in the U.S. -- sorry, but the DVD is formatted for North America viewing.  I'll be randomly choosing a winner on Monday, April 26. Good luck, and stay tuned for my review of The Young Victoria later this week.


  1. Ahem. I was *already* a subscriber to Hail Britannia. And I tweeted. And I want the DVD. So there.

  2. Amy, you get three points. Current subscribers automatically get a point. :-)

  3. Subscribed and commenting! Long time stalker, first time commentator. Loved the movie and would love to have it on DVD :-)

  4. Kristin, thank you for leaving a comment. I appreciate it -- and good luck!

  5. I retweeted, and I subscribed to this very cool blog, BUT - I mistakenly added it to my 13-year-old daughter's google reader page. This is what happens when you play with your mother's laptop :) without logging out.... But I bet we'd both enjoy the movie!

  6. Yay, three entries for you, Elizabeth. Thank you for entering -- it sounds like a perfect movie to watch with your daughter.

  7. Just found you blog, love it!! would like to win dvd. Thanks
