  1. “Approximately” 5:38a.m.(PST)?

    First of all, since you’re using the word “approximately”, why not just state it as “approximately 5:30a.m.”?

    Secondly, does it take 8 minutes for them to be announced, walk to the podium and, then, wait for the applause to die down?

    1. Good catch! I’m surprised, after all my years of PR, I didn’t notice that error. I suppose that’s because I don’t have to proof such releases anymore.

      When I was in PR, we had to have about 1/2 dozen pair of eyes (sometimes more) on any material before it was published. It looks like that’s no longer the case these days . . . in PR and in journalism.

  2. Aziz Ansari is a horrible choice. He is not funny and he has a high pitched shrill voice that makes me cringe. He is also really unattractive. So disappointing.
