Added DiffLines:

* AwardShow: The Lionhead Motion Picture Awards ceremony is held every five years from 1925 onwards. Winning awards grants you bonuses (one per award) which makes the game easier until the next ceremony.
* BigEater: Actors and directors who aren't TheAlcoholic will become this instead, with the same distraction problems which can also be solved with rehab.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseFilmProduction: A lot of inaccuracies concerning film production are introduced [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality in order to simplify the game]]:
** All scenes are shot in the order they appear in the final movie. This can often lead to the cast and crew rushing to one set for a scene, then to another one for the next, then back to the first one for the next instead of doing all the scenes that uses that set at once. If a set is used by another production, they have to wait until they're finished instead of filming another part of the movie in the meantime. If an actor is off eating or drinking, the whole production is put on hold until they return (often by player intervention) instead of trying to do scenes where the actor does not appear.
** Most of the sets are uncovered. While it makes sense for some of them (like the street sets), it looks ridiculous for those that are supposed to be indoor sets.
** Scenes are always done perfectly in one take, even if the actor and/or director has no experience whatsoever in the movie's genre.
** Movies have way fewer scenes than real ones of the same era due to gameplay complications that would arise from using movies of realistic length.
** Editing a movie in post-production does not seem to affect the quality of the movie even if the player creates an edit that emulates the effect of chopping up the film into pieces, throwing them in the air like confetti then picking the pieces at random and taping them back together.

** Which leads to GameplayAndStorySegregation, as your movie lot staff and cast speaks this simlish-like tongue, but the radio announcer and the award announcers, as well as the narrators, will always speak proper English (or a proper version of whatever language the copy of your game is localized to)

The directors also speak in a real language whenever they call out directions: "Action! Cut! It's a wrap!".
