    The never-ending awards season is about to get even longer. Debuting in December 2018, The "Awardies," the first-ever award show honoring award shows, will honor the best from all award shows including film, television, theater, and music awards. Categories for the "Awardies" will include best award show, host, presenter, speech, reaction by a winner, reaction by a loser, musical performance, best outfit, red carpet interview, and best reaction shot by an audience member. Reaction to the news about the Awardies has been mostly negative so far. "Ugh. How many award shows do these out-of-touch, bubble-dwelling elitists need?" wrote a prominent...
  • Glamour Magazine 2017 Award Show Completely Ignores Conservative Women

    Kelsey Harkness of the Federalist noticed an interesting facet of this year’s Glamour magazine’s “2017 Women of the Year Awards." Despite plenty to choose from, none of the recipients of the female only awards were conservative. In fact, it appears that many of the award winners won these awards because of their liberal leanings. Harkness writes: "In all, Glamour honored 10 women at a splashy Brooklyn award show this week. No less than half were in part recognized for their advocacy on behalf of liberal causes. Of its decision to honor model Gigi Hadid as “The Supernova,” Glamour wrote: “[W]hile a...

"The most important thing other than God Himself is you, the poeple who allow us to be in the greatest music ever. Country music man," the star said while accepting his award. "I love you." The show started off on a somber note and quickly segued into political quips with hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley mocking the president. The evening began with the first verse of Amazing Grace performed...

    Canadas Liberal government is prepared to provide an apology and $10 million to the confessed killer of a U.S. soldier who spent time to Guantanamo Bay. According to multiple reports Tuesday, Omar Khadr will be compensated in part because his interrogation at the hands of Canadian security was deemed oppressive by the Supreme Court of Canada. Khadar, who was born in Canada, was fighting with al-Qaeda forces in Afghanistan when he was 15. In a shoot-out with U.S. forces, Khadr confessed to killing U.S. Special Forces medic Sgt. Christopher Speer with a grenade. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is...

  • MTVs Gender Neutral Award Is IdioticAnd Worse, Its Going To Do More Damage Than Good

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    As expected, the media lapped up the idea of MTV giving out a Gender neutral Award; the LGBTQ (i?) groups are enthralled at the idea that people would finally be judged equally regardless of their gender. But the problem is its nonsense. It will do nothing to promote the genderless society. It will in fact, end up creating larger divisions than before. As so often is the case, social engineering by agenda driven idiots, has idiotic results. If we look at every other mainstream awards ceremony (lets not actually watch the drivel, just a glance at the results will suffice),...

    Townhall.com ^ | May 11, 2017 | Cal Thomas
    Awards once meant something. There was a time not that long ago when they were given in recognition of important accomplishments. Today, we tend to value celebrity over steady achievement. Fame is paramount. It matters little how one attains it. The Kardashians are just one of many examples. We now give "participation" awards to schoolchildren so they won't feel left out, or suffer injury to their "self-esteem," should they be on a losing team. Other awards have become politicized. Isn't that why Oscars and Emmys are awarded to people, films and programs that reinforce the secular-progressive worldview? Isn't that why...

    On January 13, 2017, Homeland Security announced grants made by the outgoing Homeland administration in an effort to focus its efforts on countering Radical Islam. One of the grantee groups, Life After Hate was awarded $400,000 from the outgoing Obama administration. The chairman of Life After Hate, Christian Picciolini, has published tweets for months calling for the Trump administration to be overthrown. In light of his group receiving $400,000 this year from Homeland and the current Homeland administration reevaluating such grants, these treasonous tweets by Mr. Picciolini are significant. Why are our tax dollars going to this Trump-bashing organizer?

    Hidden Figures was the surprise winner of the top prize at this year's Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards, which was dominated by anger over Donald Trump's policies on immigration. The film, which tells the true story of black female mathematicians during the 1960s space race, won the best ensemble prize at the Los Angeles ceremony. Denzel Washington was named best actor for Fences. Several winners attacked Mr Trump's ban on immigration from seven countries. The tone was set by host Ashton Kutcher, who began the evening by greeting "everyone at home and everyone in airports that belong in my America"....

    THE GOLDEN GLOBALISTS By Burt Prelutsky 1/12/17 Aside from those nominated and the studios who like to run ads boasting of how many Oscars their movies have garnered, most people don’t really care about the Academy Awards. But at least the overwhelming majority of the 4,000-odd people who get to vote are actively engaged in the movie business. In the case of the Golden Globes, voters consist of 93 foreigners who aren’t even real correspondents. For the most part, they are freelance stringers whose work consists of occasionally peddling celebrity interviews to newspapers and magazines in England and Europe. The...

    Hamilton, an improbable hip-hop musical about Americas first Treasury secretary, completed its rapturous march across Americas awards landscape on Sunday, picking up Broadways highest honor: the Tony Award for best new musical. The prize capped an amazing season for the show, a smash hit that has been sold out from the start, captivating audiences and the broader culture through its use of todays sounds and a largely nonwhite cast to explore Americas revolutionary origins and their contemporary relevance.

    Of absolutely no importance, but I wanted to say that the dress that I thought was the classiest, most beautiful at the SAG Awards, was Viola Davis' dress. Would love to see more glamour in what used to be a very glamorous industry.
