JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: PRETENDING OSCARS AND OTHER AWARDS COULD EVER REFLECT DARING OR QUALITY – THE NATURE OF SELF-PROMOTING BUREAUCRACIES   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY CHARLIE PHILLIPS IN THE GUARDIAN

Want to win an Oscar? Stay on the straight and narrow
In the first of a monthly documentary column, our critic bemoans the dearth of daring film-makers from the Bafta and Oscar nominees

Please, when in any organized endeavor, such as awards or honors, do daring people win?

Rarely, if ever, does even high quality win.

It is just the nature of organizations, like bureaucracies, to sink into mediocrity and safety.

Besides, these awards are nothing more than an industry’s own efforts to promote and market its products. Recognition of excellence, when it happens, is almost accidental.
