Tired of the money spent at award shows!

I'm kinda tired of the award shows and watching all the money they spend, to congratulate themselves, be wasted on gowns and jewels and gift bags. Do you really think that it is necessary to continue promoting themselves like this. We have plenty of other social outlets for them to get "out" there.
Just think of where else that money could go!

We live in a consumer driven economy, the money spent on these types of things do help in job creation.

 I don't watch anything Hollywood..meaning parties, awards. I was watching HGTV this morning..flu and watching WAY too much tv...they had homes of the VERY wealthy. All I could thing about was how many ppl that $100,000 marble tub could have fed..or that $250,000 kitchen..how many ppl could have had fresh water? sickening!

They are not going any where.  

I often think of the money spent and I have always felt actors are paid far too much.

But it is what it is.  

Don't watch.

I don't think many realize tha celebrities BORROW those fancy gowns and jewelry. Most of the jewelry is on loan from jewelers... The celebrity gets to wear pretty jewelry for the night and the jeweler gets free publicity. Same thing with designer gowns.

I've seen my fair share of complaints about the moey spent at award shows. I find people who bitch about it to be bitter, typically. I'm thrilled that the show employs thousands of people who all rely on the show for income.

I don't see a $5000 gift card for name brand sales, generating jobs, I see it generating huge profits for corporations whose goods are made the same as non name brand goods, with a label thrown on to raise the cost.
