Which Awards Show Cliché Are You?

Oh, awards season! You give us so many dumb things to talk and worry about for about a month or so before you end and we completely forget about you. Let's celebrate you with a quiz, shall we? We shall!

Awards shows are great in that they deliver the same thing every year with slightly tweaked results, thanks to the nominees. Regardless of the nominees, there are some awards show cliches that return year after year. Which one are you? Let's find out!

  • 1. Congratulations! You've been nominated for an award! How do you respond?
  • a. Tell everyone it's an honor to be nominated, like you always do.
  • b. Correct 15 reporters after they mispronounce your name.
  • c. Have "award nominated" tattooed on your hand and shove it in the face of anyone who questions anything you do ever again.
  • d. Cry.
  • e. Sit down and write a list of 190289 people you need to call right away.
  • f. Drink a big glass of water and giggle.
  • g. I wonder why it's only 21 nominations instead of 22. Those motherfuckers are going to pay!
  • h. You'll have to find out Tuesdays at 10!

  • f. Choose something you can dance—and more importantly, drink—in.

  • Something that looks good on me...like my new time slot, Tuesdays at 10!

  • f. Is there some kind of alarm that goes off so we'll know when we have to be there to give a speech?
  • g. Nobody, you assholes. I did this all by myself. No, j/k, j/k. I'll thank some people the "little folks" at home have never heard of. But seriously though, it doesn't matter, because really I did it all myself.
