Journalism Awards (but proofreading’s not part of that, obviously)

Thanks to Scott Douglas for sharing this via email.

the last paragraph is the best (or worst, depending on your point of view)

There’s plenty of painful verbiage in the first four paragraphs, but oh, my stars and garters–look at that final one. Apparently, the Hollywood Reporter arranged for two of its peeps to win awards. That’s what the sentence means, as printed. We’ve got random Capitalization, runaway boldfacing, out-of-place plurals, and more. Just feast on this smorgasboard of unproofed electronic copy. G’wan. I have a wafer-thin mint for you afterward.
