I startd watching as a child. & over the years I was quite the awards junkie. even creatd my own early on.
but with time I grew to despise awards as crass & political. however I still like watching some of the awards shows. usually the Tonys are the best. Kennedy Center Honors can be entertaining. & before they startd handing them out to undeserving youngsters American Film Institute's life achievement awards were essential.
the Oscars are often the longest & most boring of all the shows. but as a cinemaddict I find myself tuning in year after year hoping for that rare special moment. I really don't care anymore who wins. so many Oscar choices are ridiculous. & this year I've seen so few of the films I don't even have personal favorites. but I guess I still hope that for a short time I'll be transportd to that faraway nite when such an event cd thrill me like no other.
