It seems that there is a non stop season of awards for those who entertain us, whether in movies, TV, music or theatre.
A fortune is spent by those nominated to have the perfect dress or tuxedo, immaculate make up and hairstyle. Their fans would not recognize them without all of this. When they are not working and enjoying being at home….so many go without all the makeup and also jump into the comfy sweatpants or jeans as most of us do.
Seeing as the Oscars were just this week so many people try to see as many of the nominated movies as they can before watching the awards.
It used to be a fun nite, seeing if your favorite took home the top award.
The actors also seemed to appreciate winning, knowing they had reached a high point in their career.
Nowadays the acceptance speech has become a stage for airing their opinion on everything, whether political which is too often the case, or just their views on what they think people are interested in. Where did they get the idea that anyone cared, it is called opinion and everyone forms their own opinion right or wrong, and having an overpaid actor using the forum of the Oscars or other awards ceremony is beyond annoying.
These actors may have the ability to portray a variety of different characters, are able to memorize their lines etc. but are so hugely overpaid to do so.
The cost passes down to the fan who goes to see the film. Taking your family to the movies has become a very costly treat if you add in the snacks as well. Who can watch a movie without popcorn!!!
If only the winning actors just thanked a few people and got off stage. they would be far more respected.
It has become the “thing” to do at sporting events as well. Again talented athletes airing their opinions when no one is interested. It has just driven people away from some games as well as the hero status the athlete may have had, to fans not wanting them to even play and in some cases finding themselves suspended.
Wouldn’t it be nice if these actors and athletes used their celebrity status to help others, campaign to raise money to help those in need, to even set up foundations that would have continuing effects.
Maybe when they notice that viewing of these shows has dropped drastically and at some sports events the former hero has people not attending they will take notice. Only thing they have managed to do is damage their industry and annoyed so many we just do not watch anymore.
