Award Show Season is Here!

January 8th, 2015 | Posted by Sara in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

It has officially started! Can you feel it!  The celebrities are gathering!

Now, I love an award show but come on, we are overdoing it!  I counted, there are 50!!!

Here are a few:

  • The Academy Awards (a.k.a. “The Oscars”)
  • The Golden Globe Awards
  • The S.A.G. Awards
  • The Emmy Awards
  • The People’s Choice Awards
  • Hollywood Film Awards
  • MTV Movie Awards
  • Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards
  • Critics’ Choice Movie Awards (a.k.a. the Broadcast Film Critics Association Awards)
  • Teen Choice Awards
  • Kid’s Choice Awards
  • People’s Choice Awards (because Teens and Kids don’t count apparently)
  • Independent Spirit Awards
  • American Film Institute Awards
  • BAFTA Film Awards (British, so it doesn’t really count either)
  • Various Critics’ Association Film Awards (19 separate U.S. cities or states listed)
  • Film Festival Awards (five in the U.S. counting Sundance, plus don’t forget Cannes

 

So I came up with an idea.

I think we should have an award show for normal Americans!  I don’t mean a HERO show or a show about a normal person doing something extraordinary.  We should have a show honoring the best plumber, carpenter, teacher, student, editor, writer, boss, etc .

It can be the same format as a normal award show, red carpet, dresses, tuxes and speeches.  It would be fascinating to see Sam from Seattle get an award for just doing his job.

I guess my point is this:  we focus on one or two industries and put those individuals on a pedestal.  The day when we realize no job is more  important than another is the day we truly become equal.

Happy Golden Globe day on Sunday!
