Yes, the sun and the moon shine down on the lucky few sometimes and bless them with talents beyond the average... and Andrew actually got some reviews! When a poster's got one of those things in white with the leaves around it? That means prestige. That means film festivals. Usually big city film festivals, although those things are getting usurped now a teeny bit. I think Seth Meyers used them in this bit about Boston films, for one.
