They Celebrate Themselves and Sing Themselves… by The Elephant's Child

In spite of the theme that the most important thing happening in the world yesterday was—the Oscars— viewership was way down. The awards went to movies that no one had seen, and pointedly ignored the really big hits. It was the most political Oscar party in years. But the glitterati of Hollywood can never get enough of  red carpets, being photographed and getting awards—which they do with ever increasing frequency.

  • The 72nd Golden Globes Awards
  • The 25th Screen Actor Guild (SAG) Awards
  • The 57th GRAMMIES
  • The 87th Academy Awards (Oscars)
  • The 69th Tonys
  • The People’s Choice Awards
  • The Kid’s Choice Awards
  • The Webbys
  • MTV Movie Awards
  • Teen Choice Awards
  • MTV Video Music Awards
  • The 67th Emmy Awards

Beyond that, there are at least 50 major film festivals, the most notable being Cannes, Sundance, Toronto, Venice and Berlin, but most other major cities have one as well.

Can you spell n-a-r-c-i-s-s-i-s-m?

I celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you. …
—just a random few lines from Walt Whitman
