“I used to think that awards were just shallow tokens of momentary popularity. But now, I realize they’re the only true measure of a person’s real worth as a human being.” (Jon Cryer, after finally winning an Emmy)
What a great line. If it was ad libbed, he’s a genius. If he prepared it just in case, it’s still fabulous.
I haven’t entered a contest in years, but I do remember that, as they say, “being nominated is an honor.”
Until the second they announce someone else’s name as the winner.
There’s winning, then there’s…nothing.
