Grammys and Oscars unnecessary

“And the Oscar goes to… a rich actor with a huge ego (and not Leonardo DiCaprio)!”

Every year, the Oscars and Grammys recognize the “best actors” and “best pop artists.” Millions watch them so they can see who wins. They’ve become a staple in households across America.

And, in my opinion, they are completely and utterly useless.

We don’t need to see which actor or actress is supposedly the best of that year, or which movie wins the stupid award. It doesn’t matter and it never will. It doesn’t even matter the day after. They probably have so many awards that they toss the one they just won out and never give it a second thought. That, or they let it inflate their already-bloated superego. These award shows don’t need a place in our society. They celebrate the rich and famous. They get enough attention. They don’t need anymore, yet people just keep watching them and watching them, like mindless drones.

I hope that people learn that, in 10 years, those stars will be washed up and those movies will be forgotten. Just look at Nicolas Cage. He may be in movies, but he’s become a washed up actor. It doesn’t matter how many awards he gets. It doesn’t change the fact that he’s a forgettable actor.
