My opinion on Award Season

What you got to love about award season is it’s ability to surprise and shock you. Last night was one of those nights. From “snubs” to monologues, The Golden Globes brought the best out of Award Season. I just love seeing people go crazy about their favourite movie losing to a movie they’ve never seen before, but I must admit, I was a little aggravated with how pissed off people were getting.

First of all, I have nothing against any of the films nominated last night. They must of all been nominated for a reason, right? I’ve obviously loved films like ‘Gravity’ and ’12 Years A Slave’ more than I liked ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’, but that is just my opinion and that shouldn’t take away from the opinion of anyone else. Let me be the first to admit that, out of all the major categories, I only saw ‘Gravity’, 12 Years A Slave and ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’, so obviously, like many others, I only cared about seeing those movies win. However, if those movies lost to others, I don’t consider it a snub as I do an opinion from others. Who the hell am I to say who deserves to win? I never saw ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ and while I thought Chiwetel Ejiofor was going to win Best Actor for ’12 Years A Slave’, I wasn’t upset to see Matthew McConaughey. As a matter of fact, it just made me want to see ‘Dallas Buyers Club even more’.

What I’m trying to get to here, and this is only my opinion, is that unless you’ve seen all the movies nominated, I don’t think we should get overly upset when snubs happen. What I love about Awards Season is not only it’s ability to make you excited to see your favourite movie win an award, but to make you want to see the other films that are winning as well. Hell, I did not expect Leonardo Dicaprio to win, and even though I didn’t liked The Wolf of Wall Street as much as others did, I was still very happy.

Let me conclude by saying the Oscars is a whole new ball game. Trust me, you will be surprised with how different the playing field will be once the winners are announced. Hopefully, by then, I’ll have seen some more of the Oscar hopefuls and maybe have a little bit more excitement for who’s going to win. That being said, we all have different tastes, but don’t go all crazy and badger people to like the same things you do. This isn’t a full contact sport. We can all love different things. If you are as passionate about movies as I am, and take awards season seriously, just remember what defines a film isn’t the amount of awards it picks up or the amount of awards it doesn’t pick up, it’s the joy of seeing these films just get nominated. I bet you the people who put the effort that they do into these films feel the same thing.
