  •  Never been big on awards, (14+ / 0-)

    whether it's music or movies or TV. But some of that stems from what I think of as good and what they do tends to be very far apart.  I'm more likely to pay attention to the awards in the literature arena, especially children's books and sci-fi/fantasy.

    As to going to movies, I used to when they didn't cost a fortune. It's very rare for me to go to a movie any more, I wait for them to come out on DVD and rent them or take them out of the library, or watch them on Amazon Prime.

    The average movie ticket price is currently higher than the minimum wage. That's not counting transportation, babysitter if needed, popcorn and drink. How many movies are actually worth 2-3 hours of labor just for one person to go see it? And they wonder why movie ticket sales aren't going up.
