Examples of ridiculous choices from award shows Pt.1

Date written: 2022.09.21

The award shows below are popular, but the awards in general do not represent the best artistic work from a given year, as demonstrated by the following egregious examples.

This examples below are (of course) nowhere near exhaustive — even for the shows listed, there are certainly hundreds of other examples of significant works losing out others due to some mixture of popularity, racism, sexism, and politics. I've just chosen to focus on examples that drew my attention and were particular appalling.

The Grammys

The Emmys

The Oscars

The Golden Globes
