LIVE! Food & The City Awards Celebrates Crack Head Characters in Film and Television!

18 Jan

I’m not really into award shows.  I’m annoyed by corny thank you speeches, people who aren’t funny but the teleprompter tries to make them say things funny, shiny dresses, and parties that I’m not at.

However, I do tune in to keep a pulse on the times, and while watching part of the 2012 Golden Globe Awards this past Sunday I said to myself,  Self, and myself said “what the hell do you want now”, I replied … “there is something missing from this award show…..some award categories are missing and they should add this one”….
