Post Whay are there so many award's around this time of the year.
Golden Globes,
BAFTA's
IFTA's
etc.....

Why oh why are all the award shows centred around mid January to Mid Febraury.

Could they not stagger them,
Have ther Golden Globes in the summer, Have the BAFTA's in ther autumn etc.
Wouldn't end the proactice of realising all the great movies in December.
We could actually have a summer of classic movie releases.

I would imagine it's the same reason most towns have a reasonably defined commercial district: if you want your restaurant to get noticed, put it near the other restaurants.

In simple terms - because it's early enough in the year to remember last year.

This is a good thing, and a bad thing. It means the mediocre filler that dominates the Oscars is still inflated enough by money, publicity and slavish, Pavlovian reviews to be remembered.

Personally I think awards ceromionies should be done at least 10 years after the year they are judging. Only then would we see what has stood the test of time and what was basicially tapping into some kind of fleeting insanity.

Shakespeare in Love, best picture 1998. Nuff said!
