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 )
Another day, another win for La La Land. (Image: WBUR/Paul Drinkwater/NBC via AP)

Once again, La La Land dominated an awards show in the season, this time in Golden Globes, extending its momentum built since Critics' Choice Awards. While the movie race is as lopsided it is, the TV race on the other hand was more interesting to look at, with The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story managed to win two out of three possible wins yet with The Night Manager and The Crown also snatching two wins, preventing any chance for another of the show's domination in the TV field.

I've written this article on the World Fandom Championship Tumblr (which you can see it here), hoping that it could attract some new Tumblrites. But it seems I haven't got the audience I desired, so perhaps I had to unleash Plan B: Join some fandoms. My Tumblrs are fandom-centric after all, I should consider joining some multifandom communities or sort like that, same goes to the Twitter btw.

But this one's gonna be much better than the Tumblr post! Give it a try, dammit!Collapse )

The crazy 2016 is over and 2017 is finally here! Happy New Year, everyone! Let's make this a worthwhile!

Haven't done much lately, and sadly I couldn't post really much as I don't seem to have any good topic to write on, but with Golden Globes approaching, I managed myself to write a piece my own prediction of Golden Globes here. Long story short, La La Land and The People vs O.J. Simpson are on equal grounds for outright domination in the gala, with other nominations in their respective categories set to deter their total victory: La La Land has Deadpool to fight with, while The People vs O.J. Simpson has Westworld and Stranger Things, among others. I definitely need a breather for the next days until 8th!

Once it ends, I'll try to write stuff about Golden Globes and People's Choice Awards in my own personal perspective, as I clearly had to differ this blog's self with WFC's persona. But first, I definitely had to work on my final paper project to graduate from college...


Play of the Game Gala: La La Land. (Image: Bustle / A&E)

Guess what, folks, the 22nd Critics' Choice Awards is held this Sunday, unlike in the past where the awards gala, which has now award the best of movies and television simultaneously, is always held in January. We (actually, I myself) always thought that People's Choice Awards always open the Awards Season which traditionally starts every January. But this time around, in a surprising twist, a second CCA is held this year, at the end of the already-dramatic 2016 as we live our remaining days of the year with a grain of salt.

And that also means another thing: Welcome to the third season of World Fandom Championship! The 2017 season has finally kicked off, and as always, TV and movie franchises will battle in a series of award shows and polling competitions, vying for the World Champion status. The third season of the championship featured new changes that will make this season one of the best yet, among them being the all-new Actor's Championship system, the addition of Oscars, and, as always, a new crop of movies and television fighting for the fandom supremacy! This season kicked off with a rather unconventional calendar, with Critics' Choice being the season's opener instead of People's Choice Awards (more on that later on), and we're not leaving 2016 yet, not sure why the organizers did it, but well...

What's in store in the 22nd CCAs?Collapse )

All the moments during the Critics' Choice...Collapse )

Guess what, bitches. In a surprising turn of events...Collapse )

On my behalf, I apologize for the lateness of this article. I didn't notice that Critics' Choice would start this early as I initially thought that it'd be held in January like it usually does. To make it up though, this article also acts as the preview for People's Choice which will be held in January, hence the usual TL;DR-ness. Regulations and whatnot will come in 2017, before Golden Globes at the latest.

In the meantime, Twitter and Tumblr accounts for World Fandom Championship are now ready to be followed! Head on to @WorldFandomCS on Twitter and/or WFC's own Tumblr page for more fandom competition feed goodness that is World Fandom Championship! Expect a Tumblr version of this post posted soon!

Finally, after all the dramas this year has had, let's seize the glory in the choices of the Critics and the People once again!

07 November 2016 @ 12:13 am

Nine events, eight rounds, and seven competition months. The 2016 World Fandom Championship has finally concluded! Over the course of all the events, the second season of the competition have delivered some great moments, unexpected victories, and fights for points, all in the name of searching for the best TV and Movie that can balance between being the critically-acclaimed and being the fandom's favorite.

Starting out from four consecutive award shows in January, from People's Choice Awards to Screen Actor's Guild Awards, progressing to polling competitions from Zimbio's TV Couples March Challenge to SpoilerTV's competitions, and eventually ending the journey with Primetime Emmy Awards. Over hundreds of TV and Movie titles, as well as TV characters and actors, fight for taking the coveted WFC glory, going back and forth between competitions.

Eventually, one World Champion has emerged, along with the other champions. Before that, let's recap where we left off in a TL;DR fashion: Lexa already won Character's Championship and The Revenant wins Movie's Championship, the rest is to be decided by the final update, spanning SpoilerTV competitions, Teen Choice, and Emmys.

So, who won?

With both SpoilerTV Favorite TV Competition and Teen Choice Awards results now added to the standings, it has made the standings interesting before the Emmys. With OITNB and The 100 getting ruled out from making points within the final three rounds, it has allowed Outlander and Person of Interest climbing to the Top 3 of the World Championship standings, with the latter being certain of the Top 3 finish considering that they won the SpoilerTV Favorite TV Competition. Same story with the Syndication Champs where Once Upon A Time made a surprise lead in the Network Championship after being the best Network show finisher in Teen Choice, with The Big Bang Theory, The 100, Person of Interest, and The Flash all tied with 24 points and might end up in a Dead Heat, and both Outlander and Pretty Little Liars might be the Streaming/Cable Championship's Top 3, that is if either Mr. Robot and Game of Thrones don't bite both of these shows.

And the winner is...Collapse )

Next: Awarding the Genre winners!Collapse )

Meet this year's Breakout Newcomer(s)!Collapse )

And now, as promised: changes for the next season...Collapse )

Well then, that's it for this season. I hope you enjoy all the crazy stuff happened here! It's time to be back as a normal LJ user, and as this madness will go to the masses next season, I wish that I could make WFC more known! For readers who came to read all my posts from January (*cough*peopleschoice*cough*) until recently, thank you for reading all the stuffs I have ever offered you about World Fandom Championship! Honorable mentions go to Dahne and Bradley Adams on SpoilerTV for all the help and motivation for promoting your competitions here, snogged for being always there in the comments no matter how absurd WFC is (I swear I'll post more TV binge-watching experience!), and Sarah Shahi a.k.a Sameen Shaw on Person of Interest for posting my Character Cup poster to your Instagram courtesy of another Instagram which isn't mine!

See you in 2017 World Fandom Championship!
