AUTHOR: Slublog DATE: 1/10/2005 09:22:00 AM ----- BODY: Hey, Moore Won? - Michael Moore won a meaningless statue. So did Mel Gibson. Wow. Next week, I guess there's another awards show. And a few after that. Hollywood types really like to celebrate themselves, don't they? And for what? A few hundred minutes of celluloid or audio tape that will be forgotten when the next best thing comes along. Maybe I'm just in a dark mood at the moment, but all of the awards and glitz and glamour just seems so sad, a desperate attempt by our court jesters to convince themselves that what they do really matters, that it's more than just pretending in front of cameras. I love movies and music, but hate awards ceremonies and the self-congratulatory crap that goes along with them. --------
