Jerry Seinfeld – All Awards are Stupid

As the silly season of movie award ceremonies rapidly approaches, I was reminded of a very funny speech by Jerry Seinfeld aptly titled ‘All Awards are Stupid’. Actually I love this season, because we have an excuse to watch a shit-load of movies, reflect on the movie year that’s been and eat buckets of greasy popcorn while bouncing up and down on our plush cine seats. And as all the excitement, glitz and glamor culminates into the Oscars on March 2nd, can we not help but wonder, just even a little tincy bit, why are we are so jolly about witnessing a series of wank fests while 1.2 billion people live on less than $1.25/day (USD).
I’ll leave Jerry to explain the futility of awards from a slightly more refined point of view.

It’s too bad Ricky Gervais has not been reappointed to host the Golden Globes Awards this year to give that pompous, self congratulatory, ego fueled Hollywood community a reality check. Haha.
