Lunchtime Poll

Lunch Time Poll: Award Shows

Last week, a favorite pastime of mine happened. I am not talking about the baseball all star game. I am talking about the Emmy Award nominations. I am obsessed with awards shows. If they aired the technical Oscars, I would probably at least attempt to watch them.

I think what is so awesome about award shows is the ability to argue about how terrible or awesome an award or nominee is. I could spend countless hours arguing about why The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family deserve zero nominations and why Nick Offerman continues to get screwed by the Emmy committee. Obviously people make their living debating award nominations and winners. I wish I was one of them. As long as I didn’t have to argue over Teen Choice Awards, because what do teens know?

I am also a sucker for the fashion on display. My wife and I always watch the red carpets when we can because we love seeing our favorite people all gussied up on their night.

So Persphoneers, do you love awards shows as much as I do? Is there one particular show you have to watch every year? Do you get caught arguing about nominations with your friends? Or are you more into the fashion of them?
