‘I Am Legend’ DVD Screener Leaks! Will Smith's Oscar Chances Sunk?

A DVD screener for Will Smith's new I Am Legend leaked onto BitTorrent sites last night, causing some to wonder (us, at least) why the heck one ever existed in the first place. Generally, at this time of year, the only promotional screeners mailed out are for movies that studios think might actually win Academy Awards (promo copies of The Kite Runner, I'm Not There, Before the Devil Knows You're Dead, and Eastern Promises have been sent to critics, and all are currently making the rounds on file-sharing sites).

Could Warner Bros. actually have been serious about pushing Will Smith for a Best Actor Oscar? We hope they've learned their lesson!
