I'm afraid, Morris-ey, that I regard your summing up of the scene as very silly and superficial.

If you think that age is an indicator of vitality, vigour, enthusiasm, professionalism, skill, modernity, etc., etc., you're beating a path to nowhere.

As for your sour grapes theory - my arse! It's not a question of whether these awards and their ceremonies, or any other awards, are crap or not - it's that, however "worthy" they aim to be, I genuinely think such things just don't count for much in the end.
