I have been getting into award shows recently. Must just be part of growing up or something.

Well let's get to talking about award shows!

The Oscar's are obviously coming up and the nominations have been out for a bit now. Like usual I have never heard of most of the movies. Still, I made predictions on who would win. So what do you guys think of the nominations and who do you think or want to win?

Also the Golden Globes just happened. Honestly off the top of my head I cannot tell you who won. I know that Affleck won for best director for Argo. I also know that Jennifer Lawerence won something, Best Leading Actress? Speaking of Jen I loved her dress. No I am not gay, guys can like dresses too. Unless it was J.Lo's dress. It was horrible.

So anyway discuss awards that are coming up or were given just awhile ago!

I can't wait for the Tony Awards!
The Tony Awards are probably my favorite award shows.
If I had to pick a second favorite it would be the People's Choice Awards.
I don't really like the Golden Globes or the Oscars, it's too much of a red carpet event. Too many over extravagant dresses and celebs receiving awards with fake gratitude.
I'm not saying other award shows don't have over extravagant celebs who don't seem to care, but I tried watching the Golden Globes and it was just too much for me.

I hope the award shows keep awarding awards to movies that deserve it, not movies that make a billion dollars on the box office.

For some reasons, I don't really care about these shows because they are too long and have way too many commercial interruptions.

it's nice they get a award for doing their job. but i dont see the use of it. why are they so special to have awards? awards as part of sports i can understand but these people just do their job and did it a good job.
the shows themself are just long, boring and dragging on time.
i honestly dont understand why anyone would like these shows.

there is 1 i liked tho. the iCarly award show was pretty funny. =P

O.... I have only seen the opening when NPH was hosting.

Ya. I see commercials and they look horrible.

There are some movies that did well and are really good. Argo and Les Miserables are two examples.

They are long. And on late for us in the EST. It is annoying. You could always DVR it and halfway through the show start the tape. Skip the commercials then

. awards as part of sports i can understand but these people just do their job and did it a good job.

Professionals in sports are just doing their job too.

The Guild Awards are on now. I'm disappointed that Jim Parsons didn't get the comedic actor in a series award.

The SAGs? And that is too bad. Do you know who won?
