“Another year, another Academy Awards ceremony. Funny, isn’t it, how every three hundred and sixty five days we go through the same ritualized process of spurning the Oscars and then gluing ourselves to the television the day they air; we like to pretend that we’re above all the pomp and circumstance, but for better or worse we’re helplessly addicted to it. (It’s usually worse.) Back-patting and myopia make for a shameful way to celebrate the movies.” (Via Badass Digest.)
You are so right. Every year it’s a bashing of the event, then the event happens, and afterward more bashing but like you said — EVERY YEAR. Great post.
Thank you! Glad you enjoyed.
