The Katie-Bar-The-Door Awards (1980)

Interesting to me, if not to you, is the fact that as we get closer to the present, the more pictures of movie stars there are available on the internet (as you'd expect), but the fewer good ones. Lots of head shots and generically-posed red carpet photos, lots of lousy paparazzi photos of people in sweat pants on their way to the grocery store, and a thousand photos of [fill in the blank] falling drunk out of a limousine. But very few of the gorgeous art-quality photos the studios used to take of everybody from Carole Lombard to the men's room attendant. Pity.
