Last Sunday’s Oscars was the usual glitzy parade of silly grins, gushing speeches and fakery.
Because that’s what acting is – faking it on the screen, with those best at the Hollywood make-believe game walking off with the gongs, cash and fame.
That sounds a bit unfair. I actually love the movies as much as anybody, and thought it was a great travesty that the incomparable Cate Blanchett missed out on a gong for Carol.
But that’s another story.
