Awards: Meaningless chunks of gold and silver or prominent accolades worthy of recipients? Opinions always differ over the merit of awards and the power of award-bestowing bodies. Today, there seems to be more awards on offer than ever before.
The one positive thing that awards do bring is attention. Award nominations and wins can generate huge publicity for both blockbuster films and independent features. Even those films that were snubbed can receive equal attention during the post-ceremonial analysis.
This year, Film Blerg will chronicle as many award ceremonies as it can possible stand to. So keep your eyes out on the ever-growing list below. Perhaps you’ll be able to spot trends well before the Oscar nominees are announced on January 15, 2013!
