* On ''Series/JohnnyAndTheSprites'', the songs were all written by composers from Broadway shows, many of them Tony award-winners. Of all the songs they've written for this show, "Brightly Shining" stands out as the most blatant example of Award Bait. It was going to be part of a stage show entitled ''Magical Holiday'', but that was canceled and rescheduled as a more general non-holiday-themed stage show.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIr2GlNoGGA "Love Is in Bloom,"]] from the "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E25ACanterlotWeddingPart1 Canterlot Wedding]]" [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E25ACanterlotWeddingPart2 two-parter]]. Appropriately, a Disneyish season finale ends with a Disneyish song.

* Wrestling/ShawnMichaels was injured at one point in a real life altercation in which he suffered a concussion in the mid-90s. He ''collapsed'' mid-match a few weeks later and when the medical report on why it happened came out, it was revealed that he was suffering from post-concussion syndrome. Apparently the doctors (and for that matter pretty much ''everyone'') FailedASpotCheck, since nobody knew about this at the time, and even Shawn thought he was back to full health at the time. Anyway, it was briefly feared that Shawn would be forced to retire due to the incident both in-universe and out. To really drive home the point that Shawn's career might be in jeopardy, they aired a special tribute video set to an award bait song, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NBVn6Ns84I "Tell Me a Lie"]].
