Sunday Morning on Film – Roaming the Halls
As another awards season comes to a close with tonight’s Oscar® ceremony, I can’t help but think two things:
The first is that Hollywood hands out too many awards. From the barrel-bottomed People’s Choice and MTVs to the top-shelfed BAFTAs® and Spirits and Oscars®, and from one guild to the text and for every critic’s association in between, the opportunity for any one film or actor or sound person to take home a statue, plaque, obelisk, certificate, or other suitable-for-display object seems to grow every year. Enough already.
The second is that maybe … well, not quite enough already. I think Hollywood needs just one more award.
Sorry about that.
