The Humbling Continues

Now John Howard's at it. According to Cricket Australia he 'said that he was honoured and humbled' by the nomination to serve as ICC president. (Macquarie Dictionary: humble, verb (humbled, humbling) to lower in condition, importance, or dignity; abase.) I think he felt more humbled on 24 November 2007 actually.
But sense will not prevail and the Academy Awards are coming up this week. My sole prediction for the night: there will be wall-to-wall humility, each new prizewinner elbowing the last out of the way in their eagerness to profess a proper understanding of their own hard-earned abasement.
