The Perfect Acceptance Speech

I tried to find the most disingenuous photo of Oscar recipients, but this has never happened in the history of the academy; they all tied for first.

Last but Not Least

In your imaginary award acceptance speech (yes, we know you have one), who’s the very last — and most important — person you thank?

I would not mention anyone individually for fear of leaving someone out.  The entertainers who receive awards at the at the Golden Globes and so on are as disingenuous as the entertainers receiving awards at the Emmy’s and so on. They compete for disingenuous.

The more names they mention is equal to the difficulty they are to work with and how egotistical and undeserving they really are. It’s like wearing perfume; god only knows what you smell like without it.

Here’s my speech if you insist; “Thanks to those who nominated me. Thanks to my friends who encouraged me and to my enemies who made me stronger.”

Here is the link to my short story de jour, John Smith’s Longing. Hope you enjoy it.

  1. I don’t like when people mention individuals. If you do, you can say “and to all those who I forgot to mention, there are so many of you. I have received so much help on the way.” Indicate that there are more people who deserve a mention than you can mention in your speech.

Blather away, if you like.
