A Question About Awards Shows
Do you ever wonder why awards just don't announce the winners before hand? When you think about there's no real reason for shows like the Oscars, the Golden Globes, etc., to be run like they are. Basically, all that happens in those show is that from a handfull of nominees, the people who run the Awards pick who they think is the best. Is there anything about that process that requires it to be doen on live TV, in front of an audience of millions? If the point of the show is to honor the best actor, screenwriter, film, what have you, why not just pick them in advance? The way they do it now, not only does the audience know who's accomplishments is considered worthy of award, but also whose accomplishments just weren't enough to cut it. I know audiences like it when there are winners and losers but in doesn't that just make award shows into really glitzy reality TV?
