Pointy trophies

Hello, all!

I finally saw Parasite over the weekend, and I encourage you to see it at your earliest convenience, if you haven’t already.

Ramble of the Day

I’m casually watching the American Music Awards as I work on yet another Hoddle. I’ve never actually watched the show before, which meant I’d never seen the award before, either. It’s not a bad looking prize, as you can see below in the hands of Taylor Swift.

It’s also particularly pointy. Maybe so pointy that a winner would have to be careful as to not accidentally poke someone and/or do some damage to one’s clothes or skin. I also feel this way about the Emmy Award, here held by Jodie Comer.

I always felt the Emmy could make for a murder weapon on a cruddy episode of NCIS: Los Angeles or some other random crime show that takes place in a place where there an Emmy winner might live. (Considering they hand out multiple types of Emmys, for those who work in daytime television to those who work in sports broadcasting, an Emmy could end up in a lot of places.)

The point of this ramble, though, is to say that any cruddy crime show could also make an episode where an American Music Award could serve as a murder weapon. In all seriousness, though, I wonder if they’re actually pointy in a more everyday sense; I obviously haven’t been around either an Emmy or an American Music Award, so I wouldn’t know.

tl;dr: The American Music Award and Emmy Award look pretty pointy (and might make for good murder weapons in a bad crime show).
