Yes, I have decided that Hollywood needs another award. The Oscars, Emmys, Peoples’ Choice and Golden Globes just aren’t enough. (We haven’t even touched yet on B-level fame-fawning like the MTV Golden Popcorn and the glory of an actor getting himself slimed for a Nickelodeon award.) But the HAMIs are going to be better than all that. There isn’t a red carpet or even a show. Wait, let me take that back. I’m sure there will be a show, lots of coverage and all the reporters asking about what all the other actors think about it. The thing is, with the HAMIs we’ll never know when the show is going to happen.
Let me explain. The HAMIs will go to actors (actresses, too, but in the tradition of virtually all languages on earth except English I’m going to use ‘actor’ as gender neutral here. Besides, the first HAMI is more likely to go to an actor anyway.) OK, that aside was too long. The HAMIs will go to actors who gain and lose weight for various roles.
There are three ways to change weight – bet you thought there were only two, but no. First, the obvious – lose a lot. For a truly overweight person shedding 30-40 lbs is a good thing, but a lot of these actors are way down in the single digits on body fat to start with. Their BMI is often in the area that makes your Wii Fit go “Oh no!” in that cute little voice that means you are toooo low. So for one of these uber-fit Hollywood types to lose 30-40lbs, even the big guys, is a big deal.
