Awards season is going to look a lot different in 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic. The Tonys and the Grammys do not have a set night yet, the Oscars moved from February 28th to April 25th, and now the Golden Globes has a new date. It is going to be on Oscars’ old night.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association confirmed that Tina Few and Amy Poehler are still hosting the big night. If they will be doing it in front of a live studio audience, that is still an unknown. But who cares TinAmy are back where they belong.


Top 5 Entertainment Awards Shows
December 1st, 2019 under Awards. [ Comments: none ]

Now that we have just enjoyed the American Music Awards (AMAs), we thought it would be a good time to rank some of the best awards shows. Most people love tuning into awards shows because there is something magical about them. Especially if there is someone or something you are rooting for to win an award.

If nothing else, awards shows provide another form of entertainment. We have Spotify, Netflix, NY online poker, YouTube, social media, and plenty to distract us. Still, when a good awards show is on the TV, we all stop what we’re doing and watch. It’s something about the glitz and glamor that attracts us, while seeing people be rewarded for success is also oddly intoxicating.

Of course, awards shows were not created equal and some are better and more prestigious than others. With that in mind, here’s our list of the best awards show.

5. The Golden Globes

While often compared unfavorably with the Oscars, The Golden Globes is an excellent ceremony in its own right. Bestowed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Globes have been awarded since 1944. They recognize excellence in both movie and television and provide plenty of unique awards viewing. The allowance of booze and a more relaxed attitude make the Golden Globes a more dangerous alternative to the Oscars.

4. The Grammys

While the Grammys are known as the Oscars of the music world, a Grammy is arguably the most coveted award in the recording industry. However, the show has increasingly lost credibility in recent years thanks to poor award choices. Still, if you want the most formal and glitzy music awards ceremony, the Grammys is still a good place to start.

3. The Emmys

An Emmy award is the most important accolade in the television industry, mimicking the Oscar for movies, Grammy for music, and Tony for theater. Presented by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS), the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS), and the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (IATAS), the show his hugely glamorous and usually has funny hosts willing to roast the typically outgoing TV industry.

2. American Music Awards (AMAs)

While the Grammys may have once been the most coveted music award, in recent years the AMAs have become more important. Not least because the often-stifling formality of the Grammys is absent in the more laid-back AMAs. One of the things that sets the AMAs apart from any other ceremony on this list is that awards are decided by fan votes. Artists value AMA wins because they know the victory came from people who buy music.

1.       The Academy Awards

Of course, no list of award shows would be complete without The Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars. Comfortable the most famous awards ceremony in the world, the Oscars is an event that defines the movie industry. Everyone wants to win an Oscar and it is the pinnacle award in the entertainment industry. No ceremony has the pageantry of The Academy Awards, from the glamor of the red carpet to the anticipation of the show.



E! chyrons Jameela Jamil as her TV sister

E! snagged an interview with Jameela Jamil from The Good Place, and now they might be in a bad place with her. That is because they chyroned her as Kamilah Al-Jamil, the name of her sister on the show. Whoops!

Even though TGP is an NBC show with one of the star’s being nominated, I guess they were not figuring the whole cast to show up on the red carpet. Therefore, when she came to the mic, and her publicist gave the producer her name, all someone heard was Al-Jamil. That person then looked up the name on IMDB and saw her sister’s character name and not the actress’. Whoops.

It happens during live TV as much as you do not want it too.


Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh hosting the Golden Globes
December 5th, 2018 under Awards. [ Comments: none ]

I guess no one wants to hosts awards shows anymore because NBC and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association have asked Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh to host the Golden Globes. The Oscars got Kevin Hart and they got two forgettable people.

I mean Samberg hosted the Emmys and no one remembered him the next day. Then there is Sandra Oh. Does she even know comedy or how to host? They did an overacted bit at the Emmys and someone thought they would be good hosts?

I just don’t get this choice, do you?

Looks like they got the hosts finalized at the last minute because nominations are tomorrow and the show airs exactly one month after that.


Norman Lear & guest, I mean, Rita Moreno know how to make a entrance
January 8th, 2018 under Awards. [ Comments: 1 ]

While most people use their feet to make their way on the red carpet, Norman Lear and Rita Moreno rode in on a motorcycle like bats out of hell. He might be 95 and she is 86, but they were the coolest people there. Proving that not only is their project together called One Day At a Time, it has the two legends live their lives! Nothing is going to stop them.

Not even, as Yashar Ali pointed out, The New York Times listing Moreno as a guest. She is one of the 12 people who is a member of EGOT. She won a Golden Globe for West Side Story and was nominated for The Ritz that earned her a Tony. Let alone that she was awarded the SAG Lifetime Achievement Award in 2014. But what do these Millennials know about true Hollywood legends?

While we were upset about it, Norman Lear simply Tweeted, “@TheRitaMoreno and guest.” Proving he still has it and that he is no Archie Bunker.
