Oh, it’s that time of year again. Hollywood patting themselves on the back with various awards. Roll out the red carpet; because here comes the “I am better than you” crowd. It’s bad enough that these people make millions of dollars; but then they have to flaunt it on the red carpet, dressed to the nines, and sashay on into a theater to await their name being called while we peons sit at home and fawn all over them. It’s enough to make me gag.
Way to go! Great job of playing “Let’s Pretend” or singing that popular song!!! Wooohooo! PUH- LESE!!! What about you? What are you exceptional at doing? Do you show up to your job on time and do it to the best of your ability everyday? Where is your award? And don’t tell me it’s the paycheck; because these carpet walkers are getting paid the big bucks to do their job.
Maybe you’re a full time mom and a full time worker who hasn’t had a day off or even a pee break alone in years. Where is your award??? Maybe you’re a full time dad, worker, scout leader, coach and carpooler. Did you get recognized with a statue for your accomplishments? NO? Why not?
I’ll tell you why not. No one cares. Yup, that’s right. No one cares. It isn’t as important to anyone; but your family. So why do we care about all the pomp and circumstance given to these yahoos for singing a song well or acting in a show?
I sing well. As a matter of fact, I sing very well. I never recorded a record. I’m not a chart breaker nor am I about to be. I don’t need the validation of others to tell me that I am, either. You’d think their 7 figure salaries would be enough; but nope, they need to be publically recognized by the world.
Personally, it is sickening to me. All that glitz and glam for what? Maybe they should be saving the money they spend there to feed the poor kids here in America. Maybe they should be rescuing animals from abuse. Maybe they should be volunteering at hospitals to cheer people up.
Invest your money in helping others. Did you know that the poorest people give the most to charity? People who barely get by give more of their time and money to others than those who make big bucks.
Yes, I love movies and television and music. Yes, I appreciate the talent it takes for these accomplishments, however; I don’t see the point in giving them awards for “doing their job”. These are as ridiculous as these same actors and singers coming out and bashing politicians. Heck, some of them screaming the loudest are the ones who have no clue what is even going on in this country.
I guess after seeing the 3rd commercial for upcoming award events, I just got a little bit pissy over the whole thing. I don’t watch. I don’t care to watch. I don’t care who wins what. I only want to be the best ME I can be. And I do it all without getting an award for doing it, too!
100% Service Connected Disabled Marine, mom to teen son, widowed, Domestic Violence survivor, blogger and American. Can I get an award for that? LOL!
Okay, okay, fine. No award. Let me get back to my life.
