Have you actually been to one? The NAACP awards means something to me?

Award shows have stopped being meaningful a long time ago. Even the critics' choice award is not taken seriously anymore, the votes are bought. If Lupita wins this year, I hope it doesn't ruin her career. It's had that effect on some people.

Lupita should ride the wave cause not too long ago it was Viola.

I like lots of award shows...I like to see ppl dressed up, I like to see ppl get drunk and do embarrassing things, I like to hear acceptance speeches, I like to talk shyt when untalented ppl and terrible products win.  It's strictly entertainment.

I only watch the red carpet for most. I have been liking the BET awards for the past few years and thoroughly enjoy Black Girls Rock! as well.

Same here. I just like to look at the outfits. I'm gonna have to watch this one though, because I don't know when Lupita's category will be on.

I thought you were referring to race, because that's all it is discussed here.
Well, thinking that way I don't think it is people not working hard enough, but like Sang said, to generate ad revenue and also to choose the next American's sweetheart or the next big male movie star.

Ex: Jennifer Lawrence won last year for best actress. She did one kid's movie and was called fat. Then she does an adult movie and suddenly she proved herself as an actress, thus getting the award. Now she is America's sweetheart.

Taylor Swift had her microphone grabbed from her by Kanye West. Suddenly the b!tch started getting so many awards it was a joke. The girl is not even a good role model - all she does is sing songs talking sh!t about exes. And she can't stop sharing herself with men, it's like she can't be alone.

The movies nowadays are mediocre. Sandra Bullock nominated best actress over "Gravity"? All she did was scream, it was annoying. She was America's sweetheart for a while after Miss Congeniality and got her post back after her husband cheated on her. Jennifer Aniston literally acts the same way, she can never incorporate a character, it is almost like she is always Rachel in every movie, but is being paid millions. Drew Barrymore still plays early 30-something girls when she is aging, but she is rich and she is the goddaughter of Spielberg, so no wonder...

Television is mainly reality shows that keep getting cancelled until they stick with one that will make as much success as Kardashians show, Jersey Shore, 16 and Pregnant or The Hills. All tv shows about families have the same boring formula: stupid husband, smart witty wife, either dumb kids or smart kids, and some annoying neighbors.

Animation is the only thing that has been continuously changing. Toy Story made movies jump to life, and Shrek proved to the world that kids like and should appreciate another form of beauty (and also great jokes).  Animation basically has been attracting adult crowds lately, which 20 years ago was unheard of unless you were into animation.
