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.”
