Yesterday, the National Board of Review announced its picks for the movie year, selecting Martin Scorsese's "Hugo" as the Best Picture, and Scorsese as the Best Director. Other notables include George Clooney ("The Descendents") and Tilda Swinton ("We Need to Talk About Kevin") for best acting awards, and the "Harry Potter" franchise was given a special achievement in filmmaking designation for its “distinguished translation from book to film.”
The NBR's awards are one of many that are given to award achievement in films each year. Why shouldn't there be awards for those of us in the CLE industry to recognize the hard work, persistence, and educational excellence that are evident in many of the programs available to attorneys?
Categories might include:
- Most Educational CLE Program
- Best Program Director
- Most Interesting Program Title
- Outstanding Facilitator to Involve Audience Participation
- Best Problem-Solving On-site Staff
- Best Reception Nosh-ables
What do y'all think? Who would you nominate? What other categories would you like to see?
