Award Show
aka: Awards Show
Multi-hour annual program, typically broadcast early in the year, dedicated to showcasing an organization (usually involved in the media in some way) by handing out little statuettes to a small number of its members. The presentation of the awards themselves is interleaved with Filler and musical numbers. At their best, awards shows can be bright, entertaining television celebrating the best and brightest of a particular field of endeavor. Even then, though, such programs are often slow and ponderous, with only the host's jokes and the various musical numbers to liven things up between the inevitable Award Snub and the N variations of the same basic "thank you" speech every recipient gives.

Usually features an Obituary Montage.

Awards shows have spawned their own Stock Phrases and Catch Phrases:
  • "I'd like to thank my mom and dad..."
  • "The envelope please..."
  • "And the winner is..."/"And the [name of award] goes to..."
