We’ve survived four months of a frenzied awards season, with only three months to go. Did I hear someone groan? Stop it right now. You can either enjoy it or, as the Brits said in WWII, keep calm and carry on.
I actually like awards and kudos season, because it’s all of showbiz in a condensed form (well, if you consider a seven-month slog to be “condensed”). Awards are what showbiz is all about: artistry, marketing, ego and money. If you’re in the right mood, it’s goofy fun.

And don’t worry, I’m not that sappy. I will have another column talking about what I don’t like about awards season. But Harlan Ellison is so eloquent and withering in his assessment, we thought it would be fair and balanced, as they say, to provide a little counterpoint. »
