Awards season

A couple of weeks ago, the season was kicked off with The Golden Globes, presented by The Hollywood Foreign Press. A lot has been written about them already, from bias and discrimination to viewership and fairness.

For here, though, what starts my thoughts is – who are the awards for?

There was a time, before reality television, when people tuned in because the lives of Hollywood’s elite were interesting to see. The recognition that prominent tv and film personalities would receive interested the public. Now, though, celebrity is more important than craft.

So, do the awards even matter?
