On Iditarod Films and Emmys
Check out this press release. I’ll wait.
Please tell The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences that if the film in question glorifies the Iditarod, it’s a shame that it was nominated, and it definitely shouldn’t win an award.
E-mail for The National Academy of Television & Sciences at email@example.com, and tell them that inherent in every Iditarod is:
- the use of dogs for the gain of people
- the abuse of dogs for the gain of people
- the continuous breeding of dogs, many of whom are killed ("culled") early on because of lack of promise, and many of whom will die because they raced.
If the film were exposing all that goes into the Iditarod, I’d be happy to cast my vote in favor of an Emmy. But then the Iditarod folks wouldn’t be writing a press release about it.
