Now I love Stan, and Stan knows I love Stan, but if the intent of the organizers was to create a shallow, non-critical, industry back-patting award, then I think the organizers definitely succeeded and should be congratulated. Otherwise these results are really kind of meaningless.
Hey, I’m just impressed that Morrison won at a Millar event!
But.. let’s be honest here. Most awards have to start somewhere…
I’ve grown cynical Pete….
