Host with the least: Billy Crystal
Once bitten: Glen Hansard

There are few things in life sweeter than winning an award.

It validates you and your work, it shows that you have earned the respect and admiration of your peers and it probably improves your chances of shagging a groupie as well.

Of course, I say that as I say most things -- from a position of complete and total ignorance as the nearest I have come to an award is watching the IFTAs on the telly because, as you can imagine, I am pretty reviled in my own profession.
