So, you’ve been laid off fairly recently?  You’re not alone, and you’re getting your own movie: Lemonade

Hat tip to the many other outlets that have covered this already, including AdPulp, AgencySpy, The Denver Egotist, PSFK and many, many more.

The problem with award shows right now is that although they celebrate creativity, most of the time anyway, they rarely consider context or effectiveness. And often, it’s not possible to really know the effectiveness of a big-budget branding campaign. So at the end of the day, the judging criteria is wide-open.

Take the time to read the entire piece.  Then, whether you agree or disagree, leave a comment and let Felix know.
