When my husband told me that Daniel Kaluuya had been nominated at the Golden Globes in the Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy category for Get Out, I went all thoughtful, thinking that maybe there was some dark humor in the film. Maybe they did it for a reason. I was willing to give the Golden Globes the benefit of the doubt. And then I watched the movie.
As a child, I always thought that the Oscars were awards given to the most boring films of the year. None of the Oscar-winning or even the nominated films were worth watching for entertainment, I felt. They are all so serious and unfunny all the time. The last thing any child needs in their life is a lack of fun.
