The Drama of Celebrity: Judgment

Marcus, Sharon

If celebrity is a contest, is it a fair one, or is it rigged? Do celebrities have measurable skills, or do they excel only at self-promotion? Might some celebrities deserve the outsized attention we pay them? Contests require judges; do publics and media actively evaluate celebrities, and if so, what criteria do they use to give their judgments substance?
