Alright everyone, it is that time of year again, award show season! Of course, award shows are not for everyone. I might find that idea hard to grasp, but I am trying to come to terms with it. If you categorize yourself as someone who does not like award shows, I would highly suggest you give this season a chance. This past Sunday, award season kicked off the four and a half month stretch of red carpets, celebrities, and musical performances with the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards.
Here’s a little run down of what to expect this season:
The 65th Primetime Emmy’s
The Emmy’s are the first of many award shows to hit the airwaves this year, celebrating both movies and television shows. They will be hosted by the multi-talented, Neil Patrick Harris.
The 41st Anniversary American Music Awards
The AMA’s are going to be held on Nov. 24, 2013. Popular artists and albums of all genres will be awarded.
The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards
On Jan. 12, 2014, the Golden Globes will celebrate notable movies and performances throughout the year. The Globes will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler – which promises to be an entertaining evening. Each year, the Globes suggest who and which movies will win the coveted Academy Award.
The 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG Awards)
The SAG awards are prestigious awards that are decided by former winners of SAG awards – the Screen Actors Guild. The awards honor performers both in film and television. Included in the night of awards is the SAG Life Achievement Award which is given to a SAG member for outstanding talent and career in the professional acting world. The SAG awards will air Jan. 18, 2014.
The 56th Annual Grammy Awards
“Music’s biggest night!” The Grammys are the music awards of the year. They honor and celebrate all of music’s talent around the world. The award show is filled with the year’s hottest performers both performing, presenting, and winning awards. The Grammys never fail to be entertaining. Even the red carpet is a show in itself – I am sure we all remember the green J. Lo dress. Be sure to watch them on Jan. 26, 2014.
The 86th Annual Academy Awards
And finally, we have the Academy Awards, also known as The Oscars. These awards are set to be hosted by the one and only Ellen DeGeneres. The Oscars are the top award, top honor, and holy-grail in the world of acting. Everyone who is anyone in the world of acting has an Oscar under their belt. The Academy Awards will air on March 2, 2014 and you will certainly not want to miss out.
Award show season is here and I could not be more thrilled! So make a home-cooked meal, bake up something delicious, or pop open a bottle of wine and settle in with your roommates for a season of red carpets and celebrities galore.
