    Default A World Without Awards & Awards Shows

    The fact that awards and their shows like The Grammys and the Oscars is a bloody waste of the taxpayers' money things would be a lot better and lovely if they never existed at all.
    320 years have passed since the coven sank into the dark

    I may have been born in The United States, but running through my veins is 70,000% UK blood.

    Here's something from my blog:

    They're tax funded? I thought it was Hollywood, and not the government (it's a common mistake to mix those two up) that hosted that thing.

    The people of Hollywood must pay their taxes sooner or later so that makes them taxpayers. Same with the stars that live there.

    Yeah, but by a waste of taxpayers' money is generally meant squandering by the government, and not a waste of money that is owned by people who pay taxes.

    All I have to say is why is it that they get an award for talking or "acting" very well in a movie, but I can't get an award for Ping Pong?

    because A. acting is hard to do and they are awarded for making great strides to produce a great representation of the character
    B. You either are terrible at ping pong or you have not entered into a ping pong contest.

    Furthermore, people watch these awards out of their own free will. If nobody wanted to watch them, there would be no attention given to them in media. It's not like there's some sort of Oscar's Gestapo that pulls you into a van off the street and beats you up for not watching it, forcing people to seem to enjoy it.

    Reasons either the people were bribed OR they were "good actors" from what I remember.

    How did Forest Whitaker beat Will Smith's performance in The Pursuit Of Happyness?

    How the heck did Little Miss Sunshine even get nominated?

    I was comparing my average skills in Ping Pong to actors winning something for being mediocre.

    The media is the press, not the entertaiment industry. Also consider the money meant for paying the taxes is wasted on food, drink, drugs, outfits--all those stars showing off and acting prideful, riding arrogant in limos is a mark of pride which is a sin. Besides, they don't give a hang to the poor people nor the govement when it comes to their selfishness and their ego, and they're also above the law, 'cos even if they do get arrested, all they get is a slap on the wrist. Why should we give those tax evaders attion when they'd rather be poisoned by pride, greed, drugs, fortune and fame? Take away the awards shows, and just give them a check, so they can pay their taxes, simple as that. And have them just wear street clothes.

    Besides, how hard is acting anyway?

    I always think acting is more to do with talent than actual trained skill. It's not like those little kids that star in movies have had years of sweat training like I believe you would with pingpong. Acting is on of the things like art; if you aren't born with it, no matter how hard you train, you're just unlucky.

    Good on those who get famous for a few minutes of screen time. For the rest of us, we will keep on ploughing backstage in other areas.

    I thought these events were privately paid for.

    Also, rather than whine about how we don't need it...

    Don't watch it and you'll have no reason to whine.

    No one's forcing it down your throats. Acting is harder than you'd expect, it requires a lot of commitment and effort, and awards should be given to the best performances. Sure, you might not agree with who the awards are given to, but get over it.

    Also, if you're mad about this, if this is paid for with tax payer's money, just wait til you see the crap the government does daily.
    On this day of days, most epic and prideful, you were born 15 whole American years ago!
    Through the odds and by doing the impossible, you beat out hundreds of thousands of siblings in the great sperm race for the coveted egg.
    Probably via hax.
    Regardless! You won!
    So remember, whenever someone picks on you or calls you weak or small.
    Just remind them that you beat out a few hundred thousand other wimps.

    And the grand prize was not dying!

    You obviously have no idea how capitalism works. Let me introduce the VAT. Every time you buy something, a percentage of the money goes to the government, as a sort of "purchase tax". So, when you're "wasting" your money on food, drink and outfits, you're actually paying your taxes.

    You also need to respect that these people may have a different interpretation of sin than you. Most people in Hollywood worship The Holy Dollar, and not God. To them, not spending money on extravagances is sinful.

Besides, they don't give a hang to the poor people nor the govement when it comes to their selfishness and their ego, and they're also above the law, 'cos even if they do get arrested, all they get is a slap on the wrist. Why should we give those tax evaders attion when they'd rather be poisoned by pride, greed, drugs, fortune and fame? Take away the awards shows, and just give them a check, so they can pay their taxes, simple as that. And have them just wear street clothes.

    Besides, how hard is acting anyway?
    Ok, well if lets say if you are doing a sport that you love and you wanted to get an award for all your hard work you have done. By your standards no.

    It just seems like you have some bias against hollywood. But why do you care. I don't really give a rats ash about hollywood either but i enjoy seeing the award ceremonies. Eris does have a point about how this ceremony is paying towards taxes because there is purchas tax. So technically yeah they are paying their taxes.

    Even if I won a sport, I'd expect not a thing 'cos happiness and contentment is my only reward, not an inanimate material object that doesn't do a thing and is a mark of idol worship. Something made in an image and the Bible says "Thou shalt not make unto thee any image of any likeness." Remember the gold calf? The world and a lot of people's souls would be a lot better if awards never existed. And that is how the world look like if Grammys, Oscars, the lot, had never existed, no material idol worship, no greed. The only good for those bleedin award statuettes would be when their owners die, so they can use them to pay the helmsman before he rows them across The River Styx--the greedy stars, that is.

    Didn't god gave Job a reward for all the pain he went through? Didn't he give moses a reward? People do not worship the award. Well maybe some people, but who cares. It is a symbol of all the hard work they did to get that award. Much like the awards given to the people in the bible.

    No offense...

    But you're probably lying.

    Even if you really don't want an award, you shouldn't take that feeling onto other people. Guess what?

    Celebrities want awards for all the hard work they put into movies.

    And thus, those programs in which you hate were created.

    To credit the actors/actresses who put a lot of effort into what they are paid for.
    On this day of days, most epic and prideful, you were born 15 whole American years ago!
    Through the odds and by doing the impossible, you beat out hundreds of thousands of siblings in the great sperm race for the coveted egg.
    Probably via hax.
    Regardless! You won!
    So remember, whenever someone picks on you or calls you weak or small.
    Just remind them that you beat out a few hundred thousand other wimps.

    And the grand prize was not dying!

    i don't think it's the same thing at all. Remember Solomon and he got a lot of riches? In getting so much, he soon fell to idol worship which upset God who rended the kindom out from Solomon's ownership; after that, Solomon died.A symbol of so called hard work. More like earthly hard work, and that it's only good for melting down and casting it into the shape of a crucifix.

    I know this is kind of off topic...

    But have you turned into Mavericker? o_O

    Anyway, actors go through a lot of hardships [albeit tiny ones compared to the average lower middle class person] while making a movie, well, some do. Believe it or not.

    Think about it. You have to commit so much to this one movie that might not even go well with audiences. Emotional distress, hell, time away from family and friends.

    I think you are putting to much thought into this. Kids who play pee wee baseballs get little statues and you do not see them thriving for power. Really not that bad.

    Alright, go from zero to crying in three seconds and make it believable. Post some video of you doing it, while you're at it. It's easy right?

    Acting, as in what actors do, is actually pretty damn hard to get right (unless you are basically playing yourself like most action actors do and Keanu Reeves does). It is:
    • Pretending to be another person that doesn't exist, and making that person seem complete even though you only know him from a few pages of scribbles written by a nerd in a trailer somewhere.
    • Pretending all the people you are working with are all different people that your character interacts with based on how he views them, and help them to be the characters they are supposed to be through your acting.
    • You also have to ignore all of the lights, cameras, and slave-people meandering around and pretend you are in whatever setting your character is. And you have to stand around for ungodly amounts of time and still look like you're as fresh as a daisy (or whatever) when they start the cameras again.

    The fact that you can't walk ten feet without stepping in bad acting should give you some idea of how hard it is to actually pull off.
    Ehhh, I dunno if I'll stick around. We'll see.

    What's wrong with that? If the film fails, it fails, you don't get paid, you just get another job. (scoffs) If I was an actress that won one of those "bulls that eat grass" stauettes, I'd just dash it to the floor and break it, say to everyone that it's all a big waste and kick the podium before walking off. Or beeter still, I wouldn't show up at all, even if my name were called. Also consider, that those ruddy money greedy God hating agnostic stars can't hang on to their statuettes forever; sooner or later when they did, they can't take them with them into the afterlife, so those awards should be collected from them and melted ino votive candle holders.

    Ok well you obviously hold a grudge against someone. I say bullcrap that you would do that. You make a scene like that infront of everyone and disgrace what people have put before you? Thousands of people make that ceremony and it would show thanks by accepting that award. Acting like an ash and kicking down the podium and throwing the award on the ground would be disgraceful and people would not even listen to what you have to say.
