Awards season is upon us, and I always consider this to be a fun time of year. Did anyone watch the Grammys? Or are you planning on tuning in for the Oscars? I personally don’t watch unless it’s already on (I frequent a pizza place with lots of TVs on Sunday nights), but I always keep track of the winners and the fashions. I think award shows bring back a bit of glamour that we’re missing from pop culture. And I think it’s cool to celebrate accomplishments – I don’t think we do enough of that any longer.
I also think that awards shows are one of the few times that celebrities seem a little more relatable. Sure, maybe it’s far fetched to say we can relate to someone who makes millions a year and is wearing a ten thousand dollar dress. But I do believe that this is when celebrities are at their most vulnerable, and that’s interesting. You’ve got these people who are on top of the world, yet they’re all nervous wrecks. It’s something we’ve all experienced, and it’s interesting to witness in people we admire (or can’t stand).
I don’t know about you, but I can’t watch an awards show without daydreaming a little about what it would be like to win an award of my own. People wait years (or decades) to get an award in their industry and it’s such a big achievement. I doubt I’ll ever win an award like that, but it’s fun to dream about it 🙂 And that’s what inspired my quiz, What Award Should You Win? I wanted to write a quiz where we could all feel like award winners, if only for a couple minutes.
Take What Award Should You Win?, and let me know what you get. How do you feel about your result? Have you ever won an award for anything?
