The end of the 89th Academy Awards has marked the curtain's close for the Awards Season's movie chapter, and sure it was ended with a bang. At glance, I thought that a movie like La La Land, who has won a lot of awards right from the first time it's won Critics' Choice all the way to the Golden Globes, could seize the Best Picture as a way to conclude their Awards Season outing in a high note. However, the fate, precisely the people at the Academy, said otherwise: they pulled a Steve Harvey, and the surprise ensued.

While La La Land raked up six wins including for Best Directing (Damien Chazelle) and Best Lead Actress (Emma Stone), the Comedy-Musical, announcement aside, had to concede defeat to Moonlight, a drama of a young boy's life from his youth to the present time. Moonlight took two other wins, which are Best Supporting Actor (Mahershala Ali) which marked the first time the Oscars has its Muslim winner, and Best Adapted Screenplay. Both have fared well in the Awards Season, with La La Land sweeping almost every trophy they are in throughout its campaign, and Mahershala Ali succeeded in achieving such a feat in his category.

All the moment, all the drama, all the tears, and of course all the reaction played a part in what could be the conclusion of the Movie chapter of the 2017 Awards Season. Hopefully you are prepared for a TL;DR ride with a barrage of GIFs and embed tweets!

And afterwards the curtain for the 2017 Awards Season has finally closed...

The first chapter finally kicks off!

Title: 2017 World Tournament
Author: fandomwarrior (Twitter / Tumblr)
Fandom: Multiple
Word count: ~7,000
Disclaimer: I own none of the characters featured.
Rating: PG
Author's Note: This is a simulated tournament using Excel/Google Spreadsheet. Chapters emphasis more in journalism-style writing than the conventional fiction style. All progress are tracked every chapter. A Multi X-Over/RPF hybrid.

World Tournament gathers the best in television, movies, and real life, in a March Madness-styled knockout fighting competition. Held annually in March, 64 competitors from around the world will contest to be on top of the fandom supremacy, and the 2017 season will promise the best season ever yet.

With an overwhelming number of competitors, confederation qualifiers are held to see which ones are worthy to compete in the annual competition. These qualifiers are held in each competing genre with different qualifying procedures: Comedy, Teen, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Drama, Animated, Digital, Celebrity, and Fashion. Out of the hundreds that compete, only 64 will make it to the main event, and eventually only one who can prevail.

Amidst E!Online's TV's Top Couple run, Zimbio once again opened its doors to its TV Couples March Madness Challenge, another online polling competition that pits TV couples in a March Madness format. Compared to E!Online's though, Zimbio has kept in mind a broader degree of eligibility criteria, which allows even the non-canon pairs (such as last year's runner-up Bonnie and Damon from The Vampire Diaries) to compete in this competition.

As usual, 64 of television's top couples will go head-to-head throughout the competition's run in March in a knockout format, with one winner standing tall in the end. Clarke and Lexa are set to defend their title, while new and recurring names set to break their domination this year.

I remember that I always say I want to make my own March Madness competition, something that has the same premise as f_march_madness, which pits the best characters of television AND movies of four main genres. Considering the lack of interest on the FMM side and that March Madness-styled polling competitions that feature movie titles are extremely rare, I've decided to pitch a couple of ideas of what my competition will become. Fast forward to now, I've been into bracket designing on Excel. My works included making March Madness brackets of all sorts, and last year I designed a new bracket for SpoilerTV's competitions starting with last year's Favorite TV Series which you can see the example here.

With the fact that, with many TV and movie titles floating around like stars in the skies, started to like soccer/football again as I stated on my main blog, and downloaded an Excel spreadsheet that simulates World Cup, this gave me another idea: make somekind of a qualifier to pick which ones worthy enough to take on the tournament! Which eventually gives birth to what I could call as the "World Tournament." Not the good name I know, but it is the embodiment of uniting the stars of Comedy, Teen Dramas, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Drama, Animated shows, web stars, celebrities, and fashion models, vying for victory, while taking an assumption that the whole concept is a fighting competition.

The Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, is an awards show that has become a "holy grail" for movies, celebrating the outstanding achievements for motion picture, its actors/actresses, its directors, and others. Its importance is just as grand as the Emmys for television, and often people would prioritize wins in the Oscars above any other award shows due to its high level of prestige, just like how race drivers competing in IndyCar would die to win in Indy 500 and how a soccer player would do the same to win Copa Libertadores.

DUN DU-DUN!Collapse )
The three notifications that somehow formed some kind of a message for me when I woke up.

So it was that Tuesday morning that I opened my Twitter notifications, finding out that a couple of different shippers liked and retweeted my tweets related to #TopTVCouple, of which I thought it won't be going to happen until April just like last year. An Olicity shipper liked my tweet about how close the Oliver/Felicity vs. Claire/Jamie face-off were, followed by a Clexa/Malec shipper retweeting the tweet to my last article and a couple other shippers liked the same tweet.

Then hours later, a visit to SpoilerTV's Daily Discussion Thread, one of my go-to rituals, gave me an enlightenment which I reluctantly believe at first: "so eonline is doing their yearly best tv ship competition."

That means Top TV Couple, right?

She won it in Emmys!
She won it in TCA Awards!
In CCAs and Golden Globes, it was hers too!

She's won it five times, she's won it five times!
In SAG Awards, Sarah Paulson has won it five times!

And there you have it, folks, a milestone that can only be described with a Liverpool chant even though the English Premier League team currently in its unfortunate phase of losing games to the point that they lost in FA Cup. This has marked her fifth award win as a female actor in the TV movie, limited TV series, and Miniseries, in a consecutive manner (which also includes Television Critics Association Awards), and it's a total holy shit in Scouse accent! (context!)

Not just Sarah Paulson, it also marked Viola Davis' fifth SAG Awards win. Although I prefer Sarah's varied trophies she has won, both her and Viola are two of the best actresses indeed, and I can't be happier to see both of them winning five times. FIVE TIMES!!!

But, these aren't not the only thing happened during the 23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. So many surprises on who won that night, in which I thought both La La Land and The People v. O.J. Simpson would be at it again, but they weren't as the winners were announced. With Oscars coming and this effectively became the last TV awards show until Emmys and also being The People's final appearance in award shows, the tables will turn faster than I turn this post into a Sarah Paulson musing post described in Liverpool's titular chant.

I cannot believe I forgot to LJ-Cut it! AAAAA~Collapse )

The coveted statue everyone will compete for in this awards gala, the fourth of the current Awards Season (third if you skip People's Choice Awards).(Image: SPYHollywood)

So we've been through three different awards in this awards season, from the totally early Critics' Choice to a madness that is People's Choice. Coming from the public voting-based awards show in which people around the world can freely rally their vote for their favorites, the Awards Season has returned to the judges-only vote as we visit the fourth (third if you exclude PCAs from your existence) gala of the season: The Screen Actors Guild Awards.

SAG Awards, initiated by Screen Actors Guild, focuses on actors and actresses in movies and television, as well as bringing dedicated award categories for Cast Ensembles and Stunt Ensembles in Movies and TV. This year's grid will see recurring names from previous awards including Ryan Gosling, Viola Davis, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus to name a few, combined with last year's victors like Kevin Spacey, Uzo Aduba, and Jeffrey Tambor, and some new ones like Millie Bobby Brown and Naomie Harris.

With its own set of surprises and upsets, the 2017 edition of People's Choice Awards proven to be yet another celebrated night of the show. Featuring the headlining performance of none other than Fifth Harmony, among others, the show gave the most-voted, fan-favored nominees in each category a coveted People's Choice trophy.

But even with all the positivity, I feel that I have difficulties in following the show as a whole. Due to my limited quota in my internet subscription, I cannot even watch the live stream, I always afraid to open up the #PCAs search via Tweetdeck (a Twitter app) for live tweet feeds, and end up relying solely on the awards' Twitter account which sadly doesn't help at all at times (they post a fitting comment whenever someone wins a category). Taking into account that not all 64 categories are televised and I only focus on the awards presented via Twitter, my mind really had an internal Dumpster Fire going on.

DUMPSTER FIRE! No, not the show, it's just me!Collapse )

The stage is about set for the 2017 People's Choice Awards in LA's own Microsoft Theater! (Image: Los Angeles Theatre)

Last year, People's Choice Awards kicked off the Awards Season in the first week of January, but this year, it's different. With Critics' Choice Awards arguably kicking off the 2017 Awards Season (2016-2017), and Golden Globes being the second, the voting-based awards show is the third one in the calendar, but it could depend on whether the reader of this article would consider it as an awards show that matters, as certain people would skip it over SAG Awards which would take place eleven more days after this awards show.

Yay, People's Choice preview has finally come, everyone! - TL;DR alert!Collapse )
