An the Sundance 2011 award goes to…..

For as long as one remember, presenters at award shows would always say,” And the winner is…..”  A few years ago, that all changed when a presenter said,”And the award goes to…” That was the most remarkable factor that ever happened at the awards show.  As cliche as it sounds, to be nominated, in fact, to have an exciting opportunity to complete a project nevertheless if one receive an award or not is an impressive accomplishment! All film-makers should indeed be proud to have come this far. The moon is yours if, one want it! Take a bow…
