這片榮獲了33個獎項, 包括1個金球獎和7個艾美獎, 還同時獲頒人道主義獎、女性電影影評人獎、女性形象電影獎和動保組織PETA的嘉獎。這些獎項點出了這電影展示的不單是社會對自閉人仕的不義，而是環繞著主角，牽出了各種互相扣連的歧視，包括性別、思考方法／能力，以及物種。地球日，我們來看這些交錯的蔓枝。

The movie Temple Grandin has won a Golden Globe, seven Emmys and a Humanitas Prize. In all, it has received 33 awards from a range of organizations including The Women Film Critics Circle, The Women’s Image Network and PETA. The breadth of these awards shows that this film is about far more than the autism of its main character, Temple Grandin. Through her story, the movie reveals a world of interconnected discrimination – ableism, sexism and speciesism.

Temple Grandin was an outcast when she was young. She thought in pictures, had difficulty with words, and was hypersensitive to sound and touch. A farm holiday changed her life. She fell in love with farm animals. Her passion carried her to university where she studied animal behaviour.
She developed a ramp system so that cattle could march their way to the killing floor free from panic about injuring themselves. This panic often brought aggression towards them from their handlers. The ramp was Temple Grandin’s way to offer cattle a little respect in a cruel world. However, the ramp sparked heated debate among vegetarians and vegans. Critics charged that the ramp system only worked to boost the efficiency of abattoirs while turning potential vegetarians towards so-called “humane” meat. Debate on this moral dilemma continues. We all know that the evil of animal based consumption doesn’t lie only in the moment when the animal is killed. So, it is high time that we dig up more deeply entrenched connections.
