Christopher Guest's satire about the Hollywood awards frenzy is a winner

Review A-

Director Christopher Guest and his stock company, who gave us Best in Show and A Mighty Wind, are such deft, humane comedians they put you in a happy daze even when they shred their characters' dreams.

Their latest frolic, For Your Consideration, satirizes Hollywood awards frenzy -- and happily transcends its subject. It's about delusion and endurance.

For Your Consideration (Warner Independent) Starring Catherine O' Hara, Harry Shearer, Parker Posey, John Michael Higgins, Eugene Levy, Fred Willard, Jane Lynch, Christopher Guest. Directed by Christopher Guest. Rated PG-13. Time 86 minutes.
