Critics reviews

The industry takedown was too insidery for a wider viewership, while its presumed target audience—those who take Oscar season deadly serious—was made the butt of many of its surprisingly bitter jokes. Thus no one was happy, which is a shame because For Your Consideration, like some of the best work of Martin Short, is a guffaw-inducing mix of old-fashioned borscht-belt punch-lines and media parody that suffers no fools.
