I generally like awards shows. The productions, the montages, seeing how well the hosts translate between a large audience in person and on live television. I like predicting who wins, and I love looking at pretty dresses. But the thing that kills me? The red carpet interviews are awful. AWFUL! It's no wonder Kristen Stewart scowls every time she's on one. The conversations are super inane, everyone looks like they're being treated like cattle, and nobody looks like they're having fun. I feel really bad for the spouses and dates that are not famous people, because they just stand around looking awkward while their partner is being asked some of the dumbest questions ever.
Helen Mirren was just on commenting on the pen brooch she was wearing in honor of Charlie Hebdo, and the reporter launched into talking about her diet. Seriously, that is a thing that just happened.
