Because everyone must get a prize, regardless of quality. Hollywood wouldn't want to discriminate.

I see, so one person gets a best actor on one awards show, then they had to make more awards shows so more actors can be the "Best".

I have never watched a "look at me" awards show. That is only for the Celebrity worshipers. Mostly brain dead Liberals I would guess.

I haven't watched an awards show in decades. The last time I watched, Marlon Brando used the time for his acceptance speech as a political platform, and that did it for me. I thought that was extremely tacky and inappropriate, and today many celebrities have become just as bad, so why would I want to watch them spew political garbage instead of watching them be thankful that they won?

I only watch the Oscars. None of the others interest me.

They should make things juicy by adding real categories peeps care 'bout, like Best Ass, Biggest Hollywood Whore, Best boob-job, Most Facial Makeup, etc.

These awards shows are incredible wastes of money, to compliment the incredible wastes of money a lot of these movie productions are. Movies should be getting cheaper to make, but instead, they're being made more expensive due to a lot of regulations and unions. You can't be in the MPAA unless you give X amount of people X jobs for X money.

And so we have these huge hollywood productions for new action flicks, and if it's not really supposed to be an action flick, well, let's film it like one anyway.

With the price of technology today, a decent movie could be made with less than $20,000. It may not be filled with CGI, and it may not have sets specially built for it, but it would be less than $20,000.

These awards shows really should just be 10 minutes maximum, a tiny studio audience in a relatively small room, with inexpensive decorations, and it's purely about the awards themselves. No more red carpet fashion drama BS, no more 10 minute political speeches, no more ridiculous decadence put up on a pedestal. Just a quick little awards ceremony.
