Like the "talk show," the "award show" needs to return to an elegant pace and setting.
First of all, there's way too many of 'em. Only the Oscars, the Emmys, the Grammys and the Tonys...and then of course, the TV Land Awards...should be in operation.
Other than...enough already.
The accolades are lessoned for the artist by all too frequent and what seems like weekly award ceremonies.
For example, "The People's Choice Awards" was horrific! What an embarrassment.
Where was the class and sophistication of a Johnny Carson or Bob Hope as host?
Where was the elegance of a "special event" atmosphere?
THIS was the way to kick off the "awards season"?!
