Entertainment Awards – What, Why, Who?

Published

on

Reading the biography of any successful entertainer – film and television stars, singers and musicians – and you will invariably read of the awards that they have won, and usually a number of others that they were nominated for, which in many cases is a genuine second prize. So how did these awards originate, what are they awarded for, and who decides the nominees and, most importantly, the winners?

The following are lists of the most important awards, which are very often highly prized acknowledgements of the talent displayed by the performer, and valued as such by the individual. Admittedly, some of the award presentation ceremonies may leave you cold – there seem to be so many and come around so quickly that the attitude can be – ‘Oh! No – not another one.’ – but the vast majority are annual only, and they do reward considerable effort as well as talent, on behalf of the individual winners and nominees.

There are 4 Major Film Category Awards: Critics Awards, Festival Awards, Audience Awards, Industry Awards.

CRITICS AWARDS – a noted group of critics vote annually

Academy Award (Oscars) – first presented in 1929, these are the most prestigious as the voters are themselves invited by the Board of Governors, being ‘stars’ of at least three films, and/or have been nominated for an award; ‘stars’ means leaders of film-making categories ranging from acting through directors, producers and screen-writers to music-score writers and make-up artists, in all nearly 20 categories. The origin of the nickname is disputed, but it was finally adopted in 1939.

Saturn – as for ‘Oscars’, but restricted to science-fiction productions, and first awarded in 1972.

Golden Globe – again as above, voted on by (currently) 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, with separate film (15 categories) and TV (11 categories) awards, and first held in 1944.

Three specific award surveys are conducted by the Directors Guild of America (film, TV and Service and Achievement awards since 1936); Writer’s Guild (film, TV, radio and video games from 1949); and the Screen Actors Guild (film, TV and radio beginning in 1995).

WORLD MUSIC AWARDS

These awards are somewhat simpler to describe, as they are decided by total sales, on-line voting by the general public to assess popularity, and are also distributed by continent.

Record sales to determine the best-selling artists during the past 12 months are decided by the organisation’s research. So the awards demonstrably honour those at the top of their profession in that year.

Awards are for: World’s Best Male Artist, Best Female, Best Group, Best Electronic Dance Music Artist, Best Entertainer of the Year, Best Live Act, Best Song, Best Album, and Best Video.

The World Music Awards were first held in 1989 in Monte Carlo, and have been held there annually except in 2004 (Las Vegas), 2005 (Los Angeles), and 2006 (London).

Additionally, a Legend Award is a reward for artists who have made an outstanding contribution to music, less than 50 as of 2016.

Further, a Diamond Award acknowledges artists who have sold 100 million albums – to date only six artists have made the cut: Rod Stewart, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Celine Dion and Bon Jovi. British-American band Fleetwood Mac have recently been reported to have reached this level of success, and so may soon join this select group.

Grey’s Anatomy Recap: Richard Makes A Shocking Confession

Published

on

It’s all aboard the battle bus for almost all of the physicians at Gray Sloan Memorial. From babies to examinations, these physicians are getting pushed to the maximum. In Addition, a jaw-dropping confession is made by Richard to Meredith! They might have been used to staying up all-hours of the evening for operations, but this isn’t anything compared to caring for a baby. In a nutshell, it’s so good to finally see Meredith and Derek be normal after numerous years of heartbreak. She also taunted him in the undeniable fact he hasn’t had sex with Jo in quite a while. Oh Cristina, consistently good to get a joke. AZ (Jessica Capshaw) was also prepared for something. She got a fresh hairdo and clothed for work in an attempt to impress Callie (Sara Ramirez) — however it didn’t work. She even refused to visit the couples treatment they decided to (Come on Callie, provide a small!). Meanwhile, Richard (James Pickens, Jr.) continued to recuperate from his injuries. He really needed a feeding tube, however he refused and Bailey (Chandra Wilson) only went with it. Meredith even showed up in the hospital with infant Bailey to confirm Richard. Webber was starving so that it was just an issue of time.

Issues Of The Hart! They’ll never be over. That they had an elevator second — usually the Shonda Rhimes manner. Cristina essentially confessed she wasn’t prepared to release just yet. Nevertheless, with Sandra Oh leaving, I can’t help but believe both of these won’t make it from the period together. After two episodes of turning away, Callie finally exposed to AZ. But she recognized they weren’t pleased which it wasn’t a fault. They should proceed, for now. This really is great, Calzona enthusiasts. Arizona and Callie want a rest to comprehend they actually love one another. April (Sarah Drew) was worried about passing her boards and her worried heart was eased by Jackson (Jesse Williams). She let him assess the outcomes. She handed! Then, they had a really clumsy highfive, nearly embrace. Alex didn’t need to run into things because “he is with a great deal of nobody’s but Jo isn’t a no one.” He wants them to become particular. I really like it. He deserves some content. Fortunately, Jo and Alex get their freak on at the end-of the episode.

What I thought would become a sweet fatherdaughter-like instant between the two finished in grief. Richard confessed because he believed she could make the appropriate call and put feelings aside he picked Meredith as his next – of – kin. WHOA. Richard believed she wouldn’t be sentimental and only let him die. He told her he picked the incorrect man. Seems like Richard is the person who is dim and twisty now! What did you consider the week’s episode? Do you believe Richard is severe? Drop us a comment and let’s know what you thought!
