Taylor Swift will become only the second recipient ever of the Country Music Assn.'s Pinnacle Award, presented to an artist who dominates music worldwide. She'll receive the award during Wednesday's telecast of the 47th annual CMA Awards on ABC-TV. The CMA came up with the Pinnacle Award in 2005 and gave it that year to Garth Brooks, whose streak of hit albums in the 1990s and 2000s has placed him third, behind only the Beatles and Elvis Presley, on the Recording Industry Assn.'s list of top-selling album artist of all time.

Awards season is a boisterous clamor for attention, full of prestige picture releases and endless marketing dollars strewn to support them - all with the goal of taking home a few statues early next year.

" Filmmakers know those pictures run on charisma and not marketing dollars, but they also know that awards season is when they can shine.
