It’s awards season I suppose.  The morning news people were breathlessly announcing who got nominated for what award and we all know that this award nomination generally, but not always portends a nomination for another award and on and on and on until I can’t take it anymore.

First of all, I never trust an industry that gives out awards to itself based on subjective criteria.  You want to be the best?  Run from here to there faster than anyone else and you win.  That’s it.  Done.

I saw an ad for a movie where a woman totes what looks to be a 60 or 70 pound back pack around like it’s filled with helium balloons and wadded up newspaper.

I know actors and I respect acting.  It’s not an easy way to make a living.

I just don’t why this stuff is news anymore.
