LOS ANGELES — The Warner Bros. film "The Departed" could see a financial boost as soon as this morning from its Sunday-night win as best picture at the 79th annual Academy Awards.

The film was released on DVD just two weeks ago, the third of the best-picture nominees to hit retail shelves, and its Oscar buzz is likely to lead to increased sales.

"Little Miss Sunshine," from Fox Searchlight, a News Corp. company, and "Babel" from Paramount Vantage, a division of Viacom Inc., have also been released on DVD.

Films can also see a theater box-office bump as large $50 million from Oscar-generated heat.
