Awards show overload

If you’re into major movie and TV award shows, then you probably get excited about this time of year.
There’s an awards show practically every weekend.
There was a point where I would watch all the shows, including the fashion commentary before and after. I’d look at pictures of dresses the next day, picking out my favorites.
I’ve basically been ignoring all that hoopla this year.
It may be because I’ve only seen a couple of the Oscar-nominated movies this year. It makes a difference, I guess, if you have no opinion about who did the best job in which movie.

What about you guys? Do you host Oscar parties? Do you go out of your way to watch all the nominated films? Or are you passive about Hollywood awards, like I’ve become this year?
