Is Drunk Interesting?

This article about Hollywood raking in the awards for portrayals of drunks throwing their lives away is interesting. It may ring true for a world looking to spark interest into their lives, live vicariously through others' experiences, and to escape "normal." Do these movies romanticize that after the destruction everything is put back together again and fixed? Probably. Let's re-define interesting and award worthy. Boring. Normal. Responsible and thoughtful. That works.
