Awards are nice but they by no means measure someone's greatness.


I believe that's also the philosophy behind the Oscars.
WWPTAD?

Sorry, kotte, I didn't read further down. I'm glad we agree that greatness is not measured by awards.  :)

Considering Kubrick (to my knowledge) hasn't even attended any award show in which a film of his was nominated, an award in his honor is absurd.

I'm happy for Hugh Grant in winning it this year. He's the best at what he does and at least he is recognized in some capacity for it. I hardly respect award shows, but this is something nice for Grant.

Exactly. He was really humble about it too, and self-deprecating as always.
