Excellent ... NOT!

I think the Woodstock Film Festival is a wonderful thing.

It brings to the public movies that otherwise might never be seen, and it gives its namesake town and the surrounding area a great deal of positive exposure.

But about those awards ...

An "Excellence in Acting" honor for Keanu Reeves? Seriously?The wonderful Danny Glover and Edie Falco also are attending this year's festival, and the 2010 "Excellence in Acting" award is going to Keanu Reeves? Good Lord!

Reeves probably is among the five worst actors in Hollywood today — alongside the equally unwatchable Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell and Matthew McConaughey — and nothing he has done on the big screen can be considered excellent.
