Many people find the idea of award shows ridiculous. They look at it as a self-serving pat-on-the-back and congratulations generally bestowed in industries viewed as overpaid and as jobs that are easy to do.
I love them though, especially the Oscars. The first time I ever sat down to watch the Oscars, officially called “The Academy Awards,” was when I was 10 years old. It was 1990 and I was watching Saturday morning cartoons when a commercial advertising the Oscar telecast came on.
