eastwood-lac2-f.jpgMovies aren’t all about glitz and glamour – it’s about questioning the status quo, or upsetting the conventional way of thinking, about having a message that the audience will realize is important. As many veteran actors can tell you, moviemaking is no easy task: long hours, a constant attention to detail…you get the picture.

So it’s no surprise that the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has chosen to honor Clint Eastwood, whose films like Flags of Our Fathers, Letters from Iwo Jima and the Oscar award-winning Million Dollar Baby, with its first ever Jack Valenti Humanitarian Award, honoring the actor/director’s efforts at creating films that have become part of American film history. As MPAA chairman Dan Glickman says, “These films exemplify the true power of movies to tell human stories and inspire national conversation.”

Just a thought, though: isn’t it interesting that we now have to give accolades to people because they’re more “human” than others? I mean, it kinda puts a whole new spin on how we’ve all been treating each other the past few centuries – you’d think that we’re all coming from different species or something.
