My plugin is now officially available. Currently it can display the awards for the currently selected movie.
Setup is available through the "Cinematic Collection Viewer" link in my signature.

First Steps:
1) After installation of Plugin open DVD Profiler 3
2) If you already have an existing Cinematic Collection Viewer database you can select it with
    "Plugins->CCVPlugin->Administration->Select database..."
  otherwise you can create a new database with
    "Plugins->CCVPlugin->Administration->Create database..."
3) If no award data is inside the database, download the award files from my website and extract the Zip-files.
  Then import them with ""Plugins->CCVPlugin->Administration->Import Award Files..."
4) Open Award window with "Plugins->CCVPlugin->Panels->Awards" and position it anywhere you like. It can be integrated into the Profiler's layout

Tom,

Can you provide a full set if instructions for using the plguin for those of us dummies who have not used your viewer previously.

The instructions above say to create a database go to "Plugins>Administration>creates databse...".  What then?

It looks like you have to strip off season identifiers from the title (or original title) field, if you want to see awards for television series.

Nice plug-in! Maybe I will collect the information about Finnish Jussi-awards for this.

Darn, I forgot that part when I have written the readme the second time. I somehow lost it the first time around . Don't ask me how 

After "Create database" you simply enter a name for the database and put it anywhere you like.
After that, you can import the award files you get from my website (or temporary website (thanks to MadAcid) for now, because mine has been closed down for having too much traffic).

I recommend using the award editor I have in my Cinematic Collection Viewer for this. Maybe I will write one like this for the plugin someday.

It would be nice to have it work somehow with TV Series without having to delete the season/series indicators!

But as I said.. it looks great... Thanks Again!

I simply delete the season-indicator in the original title, because the oTitle to the series is "24" and not "24: Season 1" (just my opinion!). "24: Season1" I use in the Title-section only. So for me it works great

I have it saved in a layout, however, everytime I open DVD pro now, I have to open a new awards window. Can you make it so it knows that the window is there and so that it can load a database at startup?

I have no trouble, but then I tagged my Awards window in with the "General, Disc, Notes, etc" area right next to my "Episode's Guide"

Works GREAT Tom, thanks for all the hard work.

I've had it work and not work.  It seems unpredictable.  But I've not spent much time playing with it and I'm sure there's a pattern I've not noticed yet.  One thing I do notice is that it's impossible to get rid of the window.  If I close it, it appears again the next time I start up profiler.
Get the CSVExport and Database Query plug-ins here.

Yes, I have trouble with this. But if you close it via Plugins->CCVPlugin->Panels->Awards it should stay closed the next time.
