"Finding/reading good scripts" and "winning an award for a year old work" are not mutually exclusive. He doesn't have to invest ANYTHING (Time/Energy/Money) to win an award for FAN now. He has already done what he had to do. Now, it's up to the public and the jury. If he wins he will surely love it and receive it gracefully, good for us. If he doesn't then it's a scenario neither new to him nor to us.
