    A lot of people think the oscars are better then the emmys. I for one like the emmys more there more fun and unpredictable. Which award season do you like more?

    There are more awards to talk about during Oscar seasons but it does get boring seeing the same people win week after week sometimes

    I like the Oscars because it develops and changes as the season progresses. There’s also all the precursors and discussions about them. I also am able to easily watch every contender well in advance, which if just can’t do for the Emmys. The Emmys are interesting for the submissions, but when the same shows and actors win over and over again, it just gets a bit tiresome.

    You can’t accurately predict the Oscars a year in advance, but I predicted that Cranston, Dreyfus and Parsons would win again right after last year’s ceremony was over. Even without watching the seasons. I guess I prefer the Oscars.

    I like the nomination portion of the Emmys. Not so much the wins. It’s unpredictable whom they’re going to nominate year after year (or at least you can’t predict the entire set).

    ^That’s true, and the Oscars are also pretty predictable when the actual ceremony comes around.

    They are very different, but both equally enjoyable derbies.

    At the Emmys, they are very unpredictable when it comes down to nominations, but the overall structure of the same actors getting nominated if they are in lead roles in television shows, while some people may find it stale, I think they are ample opportunities to give certain stars more chances. For example: if the Emmys snubbed so-and-so for the first year of a television show, so-and-so could very well be the frontrunner the next year if said T.V. show becomes avidly popular in ratings and critics. Also, the more outlandish out there predictions usually pan out better at the Emmys than at the Oscars. I remember being absolutely ecstatic that Fred Armisen made it in for Portlandia, for example.

    At the Oscars, they, when you get down to it, are more interesting because there are usually fresh faces every year. Shining stars competing against old veterans for only one coveted spot. The idea alone has me all excited. But when the nominations o come out, there’s usually massive snubs and a set-in-stone winner in place like the day after the nominations come out for every category and watching the ceremony and seeing the for-the-most-part straightforward wins happen can be disappointing. I personally like years where it’s either such a strong year that you have no idea who wins, or when the “set-in-stone winners” get upsetted by unexpected, yet acceptable winner. For example: Wally Pfister winning Best Cinematography over Roger Deakins in 2010. That being said, it’s more anticipated because loving movies is such a universal thing. Some people may not watch T.V. or even own a T.V. (not generally a problem at this day and age, but still) or simply think that all that’s on T.V. nowadays is total crap. But there’s usually new two-hour movies at the theatres every week instead of the same show with the same characters just having the same adventures every week for 30 minutes to an hour.

    Yeah, there are both very different, and yet also in same ways, very identical. This is an excellent thread.

    I think that depends on the year. Last year for instance, there were just so many sweeps, it became so boring and we were all trying to make a race happen when it’s anything but. Like, Blanchett, Leto, Cuaron, ‘Gravity’ with all the tech, McConaughey’s late surge all pretty much swept and that’s like half the categories. Were anyone really going to beat 12 Years a Slave in Best Picture without receiving a backlash? The only real race was in Supporting Actress and Original Screenplay, and those were just between two people/groups. I’m yawning as I type this.

    But I think I have hope for this year. There is absolutely no front runner as of now and I love it. Everyone’s making every prediction possible but no one’s for sure.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought last year was a total bore. The films were fine in and of themselves, but Gravity winning like seven awards one after another and Frozen, 12 Years, McConaughey, Cuaron, Leto, Blanchett… ugh. If they spread the wealth and gave wins to the other BP nominees then I would more happy, but yeah last year totally sucked. And I am happy that this year is seeming to be the strongest year in film since 2010.

    Yeah. Last year had such a great selection of films and great performances, but it was boooorrrring. 

    For me, of the 2000s and 2010s,  I liked 2007, 2010, 2012. There were a lot of great films AND a lot of spreading the wealth.

    The Oscars are a much bigger deal, as they should be.  Love or hate them, the Oscars tradition of celebrating American filmmaking is hugely significant, now for 86 years.  I get shivers when I see clips of the great films to come out of Hollywood, many of which have stayed with me much longer than a television show.

    Both are immensely different. 

    At the Oscars, you don’t have to watch the ceremony to know who wins. The Oscars have always been joked about being too prestigous and how it’s the award everyone wants. In my opinion, I enjoy the Oscars because then you don’t get the rush of, “Oh shit! I was way off.” unlike the Emmys where they fuck up so much. Although the Oscars aren’t the best. There were years where they picked the film that was not as strong as the runner up (King’s Speech over Social Network, Crash over Brokeback Mountain, etc). But I do believe the Oscars is rightfully ranked.

    But let’s talk about the Emmys. Believe it or not, but TV has been getting stronger and stronger. Some film directors have stated liking TV better than some film because of it’s universal genre, etc. With TV shows like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, True Detective, etc, TV dominates, and that is why the Emmy’s are slowly becoming prestigous like the Oscars. Because if Oscar winners can get shut out at the Emmy’s then that says something. But I am so glad that the Emmy’s have toughened up in the recent years because few years ago film stars were do miniseries and tv movies just to get 1/4 of an EGOT. But now the Emmy’s have realized what power they have and are using it to make people get on their knees. One thing I highly resent are how some shows submit in the wrong categories and it ends up biting them in the ass (I’m looking at you True Detective).

    But overall the Oscars are still dominating and believe it or not but in 14 years we’ll get at it’s 100th.

    Well, speaking from the perspective of someone woefully behind on television, I watch the Emmy broadcast every year. I wouldnt want to miss them. Because I rarely have an emotional investment in various perfs and shows/series/movies what or whomever wins is interesting, but clinical. I do feel emotions of course, such as being happy for the winners and sometimes it can spark my interest in this show or that.

    I’ll make predictions on Emmy but it’s hilarious how lost I am. They keep telling me they’re unpredictable, which can be fun. I suck at it however.

    The freaking Oscars, is a very different experience. There’s something to like every year, and, for me, something to feel ecstatic about once every decade or so.

    The only way I can see being ‘surprised’ by the winners and losers is by being Bubble Girl; dont read anything, dont watch anything from the media, dont listen to anything, and forget everything I have ever learned about procedures like these.

    Emmys 100%.

    Emmy voters are held accountable by having to sign an affidavit saying they watched everything. Oscar voters just follow the leaders. Why does every voter get to decide which movie has the best sound editing? Why not limit it to the experts, or a small panel?

    Momentum and outside factors rule the Oscars, whereas tapes and performances win at the Emmys. It’s just a fairer process (albeit with its own unique flaws).
