Why are actors so horrible at these Award Shows? I mean they’re ACTORS! Their job, to which we are celebrating typically, is embodying some other character for our entertainment! They learn pages of scripts, become characters completely far fetched from real life, make us laugh, cry, and get angry and yet these people can’t pull off a 30 second presentation of the next category in the show?
I’m not sure if the point is to show some sense of ‘normalcy’ to who they are: “Oh look he reads cue cards too!” But I can’t remember the last time I was on stage in L.A. at a MTV event much less on stage chumming it up with Jessica Alba! Don’t wake me from that dream! I can’t figure it out though. It’s painful most times and bewildering to me.
