The Morning Report 1/9/17

"Before I get on to the writing awards, there's a little matter I'd like to tidy up - at least if I expect to live with myself tomorrow morning. I would like to say, personal opinion, of course, that I'm sick and tired of people exploiting the Academy Awards for the propagation of their own personal propaganda. I would like to suggest. . . that winning an Academy Award is not a pivotal moment in history, does not require a proclamation and a simple "Thank you" would have sufficed."


Good morning, kids. Hope you all had a great weekend, despite the snow and cold. I'll let the links speak for themselves. As for the Golden Globes and Meryl Streep, the late, great Paddy Chayefsky has been gone nearly 36 years, but his words and deeds at the 1977 Academy Awards speak for themselves. Have a better one and remain blessed.
