'Blow' wins Prism Award for drug message
The late Ted Demme's film Blow was honored at the sixth annual Prism Awards for its accurate depiction of drug use and addiction. The award comes nearly four months after Demme collapsed and died during a charity basketball game. Coroner's officials found a small amount of cocaine in his body and concluded the drug could have been a factor in his death. Also, America's favorite TV dad, rocker Ozzy Osbourne, received a Prism Award for his song Junkie.
