A Big Night of Ups and Downs
An eagerly awaited night in the world of Showbiz and Sport are the annual Rammies, this year held in Sydney. On this august and glittering night the Stars come out for the Naming of the Ram (Two Paddocks), after an individual who has served with particular distinction and flair in his field.
To qualify for a Rammy you need to:
(Note : the rules do not actually disallow bribery, but if attempted, it might be better if no mention is made.)
|This year’s Rammy, Hugo Weaving, is deeply honoured and humbled to have the Ram named after him, YouGo Weaving. He thanks the proprietor, and his agent.|
|Almost immediately Hugo’s euphoria evaporates as the news breaks that YouGo has died in the course of his duties, on the job, so to speak. Hugo is gutted as the news sinks in. He forgets his agent.|
A devastated Hugo is comforted by friends and family. He tries to smile gamely through the tears.
The show must go on. George Gregan is delighted to receive a Rammy. Says this is the crowning accolade of his career, he is humbled etc., and thanks his agent. Overlooks the fact that he has no agent. Wishes George Gleegun every success.
|George receives ecstatic congratulations all round. Other showbiz luminaries present are green with envy, but in best Oscar tradition, put on good sporting face.|
|Hugo has pulled himself together enough to congratulate his newly crowned successor. Much applause.|
|Hugo has a relapse.|
|Others present at this years Rammies include: Richard Roxburgh, Silvia Colloca, David Wenham, Kate Agnew, Erica Gregan, Katrina Greenwood.|
