    Harvey Weinstein was also one of the first guys who really focused a lot of his energy on awards shows for his studio. He realized that if you can schmooze to win awards, then you could easily rack up a lot of wins for your studio by buying the right content and schmoozing in the right way. He also realized what you described-using the massively recognized prestige of the Oscars and other awards as a marketing strategy for your films. So you can thank Harvey Weinstein for creating the modern corruption we witness at these events. They were always corrupt but he was one of the first of the modern era to really milk it for all its worth.

    the 'lunches' that get ppl to win awards seems like something management makes artists do rather than something they actually enjoy doing lmao

    I’m still salty that the lighthouse and Willem Dafoe’s role in that didn’t get a single nomination in the oscars. Parasite was still a good best picture that year though.

    There will never be a more entertaining awardshow moment then when the icon, the legend Marcel Reich-Ranicki refused the lifetime award at the 'german televisionawards' and proceeded to drag the entire german television industry and roasted every single person at the awards. Live on national television. For 3 whole minutes. Fucking iconic.

    The problem with the kid’s choice awards now is that no one really that notable attends them anymore. Back in the day like Katy Perry would go, Will Ferrell, Gwen Stefani, etc etc. Now it’s just tik tokers and people who I’m not even sure some kids exactly know

    My old high school drama teacher was a judge for one of the movie awards shows. She said that if she let us see who was nominated or if she let us see the film they sent her, she would be kicked out of the judging group.

    When the American voting system was established, there was the debate between only the uppity folks voting or everyone voting, the same thing is happening here. Now we have the electoral college as a compromise. I think an equivalent of an electoral college in award show voting would be a nice solution (don’t get me wrong, the actual electoral college sucks and has actual important consequences, unlike at these award shows)

    I liked the voting the kids choice awards had. Like someone else picks the nominees and we all voted for it like that entertained the fuck out of little baby 8 year old me. Like i used to get excited for the awards cause “oh my god i gotta vote rn” and all my friends would be like “what movie did you vote for i voted for this” and i just remember it being so exciting. And the ads for it were exciting. It was just exciting. Nothing is exciting ab any other award show. It just exists and its like theres no fun to it, i can just google the results tomorrow instead of wasting like 2 hours of my time i can use to watch funny tik toks or something

      Seems like award shows are getting less popular because they focus on politics so much, and none of them know very much about politics

    In my opinion the game awards is the absolute worst there are random gamer ads and some of the games that win the awards are just wrong for example I highly doubt that last year the ff7 remake soundtrack won over the doom eternal soundtrack or the p5r soundtrack and some of the choices for game of the year are sometimes wrong like 2019 sekiro won which is wrong as it was up against death stranding and the stellar resi 2 remake I think there was some sort of paid win for that but the game awards does have its good parts but its mostly cringe and people who just aren't gamers revealing the winners

    Including new categories could be interesting as well, like stuntmen and women do an exceptional amount of insanely hard work and get little to no credit. Making playlists of the artists nominated for music could make people more interested?

    I'd bet that part of the reason the views are down is because of the political BS spewed. Whatever side you're on, I don't care about your opinion. Your celebrity opinion on politics matter no more than my BS opinion on politics.
