Can an awards show save a life?

Maybe that's a loaded, even stupid question. But if the look of shock on Amy Winehouse's face as she realized that she had won one of the premier awards of the Grammy broadcast, Record of the Year, is any indication of what may come in the future for this very talented, very troubled soul singer, perhaps it will be a wake-up call of sorts to her of what she is capable of - and of how much there is to live for. Of course, professional accolades pale in comparison to overall quality of life, not to mention the friends and family around us. But considering Winehouse's youth and the promise of what could truly be one of those special musical careers - well, one can hope. It's all up to her now.
