Why I Will NEVER Watch Another Award Show

Jim's StatureI’m completely over watching ANY more award shows for actors. Why? Because actors have completely taken over the television. Examples – daytime talk shows feature actors, actors, actors…night time talk shows feature actors, actors, actors.
These over paid, self-indulged, pompous, spoiled, ego maniacs are not content with getting paid millions of dollars working a few months a year on a movie, where they live in the lap of luxury, where their every whim is catered to. Oh, no, that’s not enough….they also have to spend countless evenings getting gushed over by fellow “actors”. Here is just a partial list of “awards” shows which all they do is fawn over each other –
BAFTA Film Awards, Screen Actor Guild Awards, Film Independent Film Awards, Academy Awards, Kids Choice Awards, MTV Movie Awards, Daytime Emmy Awards, Tony Awards, Critics’ Choice Award, Screen Actors Guild Awards, BET Awards, Golden Globe Awards, People’s Choice Awards.

Can you image! What other profession goes to such lengths to give each other praise? It’s a real shame that the only discipline in the arts that gets all the attention is acting.

What about authors, painters, sculptors, dancers? Why don’t they appear on talk shows with the same regularity as actors? Why don’t they have their award shows televised? It’s because the media has been 100% hijacked by actors with frail egos who need constant attention. And that’s enough for me. I’m sure these shows will merrily go on and on and on…but I don’t have to subject myself to watching them anymore and does that ever feel GREAT!

About Hurricane River Publishing

I write mystery novels. The Butterfly Conspiracy and The Peacock Prophecy, feature Stepehn Moorehouse, his Uncle Phillip Kahle, and Stephen's romantic interest, Jeanette St. Jacques. The Maze At Four Chimneys features John Barrington and his family. The Black Orchid Mystery features a detective named Archie Archibald. This book takes place in Vero Beach, Florida but has ties to John Barrington from The Maze book. My latest book, Menagerie of Broken Dreams, brings back Stephen Moorhouse and his uncle Philip, as they travel to central Florida to make a movie. Things don't go as planned when they meet Doctor Merryweather and his run down roadside attraction the Menagerie.
