The Bob Awards!

8 Mar

This year’s Oscar field is maybe the most uninspiring I can remember and for the second year in a row I feel absolutely no desire to watch the telecast. I’m even more indifferent to slogging through it given the disrespect the Academy and ABC are showing to the nominees in several categories. So save yourself some time and misery by reading the winners of this year’s Bob Awards which are far more important and obviously the correct choices anyway because I made them. Enjoy!

Most Terrifying Film: It’s not feature length and it was made nearly 50 years ago so I can’t really put it in the mix with other movies but George Romero’s finally released The Amusement Park is an absolutely chilling look at the horrors of how society treats the elderly. It’s even more horrifying when one realizes that if anything, it’s only become worse since the film was made in 1973. As a Romero fan, getting to watch one last unseen work was a gift and a testament to how special and unique he was as a filmmaker.
