Surrogate Sundance Awards

As of 8:42 pm this evening, the 2012 Sundance Film Festival had given two awards to Ben Lewin‘s much-praised The Surrrogate — the Dramatic Audience Award and a Special Jury Prize for Dramatic Acting (a tip of the hat for costars John Hawkes and Helen Hunt). The film was acquired for distribution during the festival by Fox Searchlight.

    How on Earth can there have been 26 awards given out to feature-length movies at Sundance tonight? It’s the festival equivalent of giving every eight year old on the soccer team their own individual trophy at the pizza parlor on the last day of the season:

    Some of these awards bend over so far backwards to be so flipping long-winded that the engraver’s going to have a hell of a time just trying to fit the winner’s name anywhere on the plaque. Do they actually announce all of these at the awards ceremony and let the winners take the stage and give an acceptance speech?

    I was looking online for London Conference Venues and Locksmiths In Chepstow and I came across this site. I like the first comment…it probably is just like comparing it to an 8 year old soccer team.

    Anyone ever heard of Weee Recycling? Or any other Removal Companies London or nearby areas? That’s what I was trying to find when I happened upon this site….I just thought I would ask. Other than that, I love the concept of the Sundance Festival because it gives the underdogs a chance to be seen…

    Though not part of the EPA’s OBD2 standard, the diagnostic read-outs used by dealership technicians are also read through the OBD II connector. These service codes show you such things as knock sensor operation, FI pulse width, ignition voltage, individual cylinder misfires, transmission shift points and ABS brake condition. There can be over 300 readings available, depending on the vehicle manufacturer and model. Vehicles vary in the readings they will support. Scanners vary widely in the number of these signals that they can read. Some show just the basic OBD 2 or OBD II signals, others show the full range of service codes.
