Missed it by that much

Just a few questions:

If you've said "nearly worthy of Hollywood," haven't you covered all the ground that "dramatic" covers?

What made the sting fall short of Hollywood-worthy? How about a little help here for all those frustrated colleagues with a screenplay in the desk drawer who want to get it right the first time?

If you have to proclaim the Hollywood-worthiness, shouldn't you set it off with commas?

As with the comma case discussed below, this one doesn't call for enforcement of a prescriptive rule just for the same of rulemaking. But it does support a sense of wariness toward reporters' value judgments: not that they're wrong in all cases, but that left on their own, they'll do the darndest things.
