    A little rigged each year? lol and I can tell you what happened with macklemore. The people who you said don't care about award shows care about award shows.. And nobody has respected nickelodeon and their pedophile producers.

  • D

    We need an award show for award shows

  • Rice

    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

  • Mushibuh

    Do they really need to be recognized? It is just rich people petting them selfs on their back like their work is important, then just sitt on hugh piles of money...

    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.

    If they were all slimed I might start watching the awards again. Watching all those dresses that cost more than my life getting destroyed would be entertaining.

  • egysaunders

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

      Although Eddy didn't mention it, I feel like the Game Awards last year were really awkward. It might just be me, but Geoff's responses just kind of felt halfhearted.

  • Kappa

    The nasally talented, Edele Bazeem.

  • Zekromium

    I think it's awkward because it's basically a bunch of people all getting together in a room, having to fight against possible friends for an arbitrary award, and having to say "Yeah I'm better"

    This is a lotta hoops to just tell every award show to turn into the Kids Choice Awards.

  • radchoco

    I think I stopped watching award shows in like 2015/2016 (early highschool age) and I only watched MTV awards and Kids choice awards as a kid.

  • Milkshake

    The only award show related thing I care about is Tyler winning a grammy

    I don't care that the shows are rigged, they're all just so painfully awkward. I can't watch people making a speech in front of a crowded room. They trip over their words and a lot of the times the jokes fall flat. It's just a bunch of overdressed nervous people. Anyways, I'm glad this is a dying art form.

  • Natalie

    The “safe” option always seems to win at these shows. I think that’s what’s frustrating and fake for most people. It’s like when Metallica lost to Jethro Tull at the Grammys for the hard rock/heavy metal category. It just doesn’t make sense and why anyone even pays attention to these things at all anymore is honestly shocking.

    Sometimes if I ever go to these award shows I’d be like underwood breaking the forth wall and telling my audience I hate award shows

  • Gravity_Falls_Up

    Yes. Let’s make a petition to slime people at the Grammys. Let’s but hold the award show in a giant pool of slime

  • Vellichor

    I think another problem is that most of these shows are, in spirit if not in execution, industry-focused. They weren't originally intended to have this mass appeal. All industries have their awards and festivals and celebrations, but we only see this tiny fraction because of the celebrities. When you watch the Oscars, what you're seeing is essentially a business party that has been dressed up in the trappings of popular entertainment. These shows are intended first and foremost for industry insiders, but the people producing the shows have capitalized on the appeal of celebrities by trying to make them into something like a variety show for a broad, general audience. The problem is that these two goals don't really mesh. For instance, the average non-cinephile doesn't keep up with the craft and business of filmmaking and only tunes in to the Oscars because their favorite actor or director got nominated. Awkwardness then results from the attempt to play to non-overlapping audiences.

  • madgirlmuahaha

    The kids choice awards is unironically my favorite award show, even now as an almost 24-year old grown woman. Getting slimed is the only non-awkward way to interrupt an acceptance speech that’s going on for at least a minute too long.

    I like the crunchyroll awards Cus it’s mainly fan votes and they use the audience feedback

  • GracefulWolf22

    If celebrities got slimed, I wouldn’t care how rigged the awards are. I’d totally watch that!

    I'm gonna tell my kids that Edwadian Burback paid off the Mob to put a slow but steady decline into award shows over the years because he plays the long game.

    Also, I don't know about you but my favorite artists are none of the ones at the Awards. They are all here on UZload, so why would I watch the Oscars when I don't care much for any of them?
