Reasons Why We Can’t Wait for Awards Show Season

Awards show season is almost here, so get ready for a whole lot of glitz, glam, happy tears, and shocking upsets.

Here’s what you have to look forward to when the 2017 awards season rolls around:

Inspiring acceptance speeches

There’s nothing that gets you right in the feels quite like seeing someone hitting a major career milestone as they do something they love. It’s enough to make you want to turn off the TV and get to work chasing your own dreams.

 

Designer Fashion

Yes, the “who are you wearing?” cliché is overdone, but you have to admit you love seeing what the celebs choose to sport as they hit the red carpet. And the fashion misses are almost as great as the jaw-dropping successes. Remember Björk and the swan dress?
