    Comic Book and Video Game Awards? I'm Tired of the Oscars.

    Have you ever wondered why Comic Books and Video Games (And I mean some class act video games) are never treated with the respect that movies, television shows and novels are? Movies have their Oscars, Television Shows have their Emmys and sometimes, the two share the Golden Globes. Books on the other hand have their Newbery and Caldecott Medals. But where are those ceremonies for mediums that have more than proven themselves in the world of entertainment? It’s pretty ridiculous that all these other forms of entertainment are being praised with awards, which just isn’t fair. Or is it? Glamorization and glorification of a specific medium (ahem… film… ahem) overhypes and overrates it, to the point where audiences blame ceremony holders for playing favorites. Is it a good thing or a bad thing that comic books and video games aren’t subject to this rat race? Is it a bad thing that they weren’t considered at all to at least be invited to a race where talent, a fairly subjective quality, is given an award? Maybe it’s a good thing, but then again … the article has yet to be written.

    • Both have their awards already. Comics have the Eisner Award and are capable of winning various other literary awards as well. The Hugo Awards for science fiction has a specific award for sci-fi comics. Video Games have The Game Awards, which are broadcast on YouTube, Twitch, Steam, and other websites. This award show has both jury voted awards and fan voted awards. – nsnow 8 years ago

    This was such a cute article. I’m really glad it focused on the bride and her endeavors rather than on Victor and Victoria’s love.

    The Corpse Bride: The Beauty of The Dead

    Comic books definitely do NOT get the credit they deserve. That last mention about the death thing in the Spider-Man comics, it’s kind of depressing when you read up about it.

    Three Essential Spider-Man Stories: Power and Responsibility

    Thank you so much for actually mentioning Buffy the Vampire Slayer in 2015 and comparing it to modern day shows because it had a lot of influence on modern day shows. While all three of these shows might have a few overlapping themes in common, they’re most definitely worlds apart. For all you viewers out there, Buffy may sound like the “teen-iest” of the shows, but it’s the epitome of existentialism, the Vampire Diaries is an intense and soapy ride (Haven’t finished the third season) and Supernatural is a delightful balance of both.
