You'd have to be living under a rock not to be aware that in a rush of blood and self-congratulation the entertainment industry in Australia and elsewhere is having a love-fest and celebrating itself over and over with awards ceremonies. It's that time of year. The Groundlings - the people's choice awards for excellence in Queensland theatre in 2010 - is now done and dusted. The winners were published today. Today the Queensland theatre's Matilda Awards' nominees were announced. Congratulations to all nominees and to the committee and judges who work to support the industry in our state. What's certain is that with the talent we have in Queensland we have a lot to celebrate and a theatre future that is looking bright.
