Ungracious Winners

What is it with Canadian award winners? I have personally witnessed a couple recent ones who act like they not only deserved, DESERVED, the award, but when they accepted they gloated and acted like it was years overdue. I hardly ever saw such three-year-old behaviour in the states where winners thanked everyone and recognized the quality of their competition.

In fact, and listen up all you Canadian award winners, In New York I had the opportunity to meet some of the biggest stars, yes personally, and I also saw them receive awards. They were also some of the most gracious aceptees you can imagine.

Learn some tact. And for those who award grants, how about you think twice about awarding to an artist/spokesperson who does your award or company absolutely no good with his or her behavior and attitude.
