This year, though, has been more difficult than most. I mean, look at the nominees. Go on, look. Cast your weary gaze upon this list of top-tier honorees, and marvel at the mind-bending ignorance and general contempt for the creative process that went into crafting such a list — a thoroughly insulting mish-mash of boring “arthouse” awards bait and half-baked mainstream drek.
