Just like last year, people are mad about the Anime awards. I for one don't care about it. I mean if my favorite show wins then what? The award doesn't mean anything to me.
Despite it meaning something for the animators and the company.
I think that the Anime awards will always piss people off and people will complain about a show they didn't think should win, win..
Yuri On Ice won most of the awards last year and people need to understand that when you let people vote their own choices your favorite anime might not win.

Not everyone thinks or likes the same shows as you

If a particular show should've won then why have the awards? We should just handpick shows and say they are this because we already had our opinion beforehand.
Either people will prevent others from voting and fan voting will be restricted. Or Judges maybe get less power.
Someone is getting left out because of outrage. Anime awards is literally something that everyone gets and all people do is complain about the choices that weren't their favorites.
Does anyone watch the grammys, oscars? Choices win that many felt shouldn't have.
I think it's ok to disagree, but to make it this problem is stupid.

It's only anime.
Sincerely, from Scorpio.

To think my MAL list is a representation of the amount of anime I watched is really ignorant. Not everyone cares to updating that list like some on here. Also, did you really check? Wow...

Good, then spend the time filling your list, rather than with this thread about nothing.

Anime awards are bad, not because of whether they picked good or bad shows to recognize, but because no one should give a shit about stupid awards.

We already know it was just a bunch of opinions, but when people are calling it "professional opinions", it's just kinda sad to see that

They like something I don't like like. That award is thrash. Says every award hater when their favorite don't win. Salty people are always amusing to watch whenever their favorite don't win. I have a good popcorn time in the Crunchy Roll award thread.

I wouldn't call it bad for what they chose, though it skews a lot with popularity. I'd call it bad because it's an award show, and those are always dumb.

It's an award show, they're never really any good. This one was just particularly hard to watch because of all the cringe.

For me the biggest problem is not with the winners, but the way the awards are organised. I see a few problems there:
1. Names of some awards. Best Boy and Best Girl automatically exclude adult characters. It should instead be named Best Male and Best Female Character to give everyone a chance.
2. Nominating 2 characters from the same anime in one category. It's just unfair and the nomination could be given to another character.
3. Nominating shows in categories they don't really belong to. As much as I love Mahoutsukai no Yome it's not really a drama. It shouldn't even be nominated in that category.
My taste is shit but so is yours.

It really isn't bad.
By saying, it doesn't (necessarily) mean it is good.

One thing I believe is that not making too big of a deal of these contests where voting is held and is mainly based on opinion, that may or may not be grounded on objective arguments, might be good for your mental health (and physical health too, in some extreme cases).

Please spare me your false bravado. While is true that people should not view awards giving ceremonies in such a high regard, you should not discard them as a whole. After all the true of the matter is that people will always be drawn to know who won in all the diferent categories and will want to discuss/comment on whatever or not a series should had won a particular entry or not. Is fun in that regard ultimately serving as a way of the fans celebrating the media they so much enjoy.
There will never exist a concession within the community sure, but is up to the ones responsible for the nominations to at the very least diversify the choices and not make it seem like a whole thing is nothing more then a huge circlejerk for the most popular series that aired in said year.

The OP finishes his thread post with "It's only anime." like some messiah he is sent for the anime community or something. OP doesn't realize the entire thread he created became garbage and his opinion on the subject matter became garbage the moment he spent enough time to create a thread like this and finishing it with "It's only anime."

The anime awards are ignorable. if you're like I was last year, I trolled the votes with 1000 submissions for a character fav of mine that nobody except myself cared about. I just did that for the lulz, sadly they never displayed the results for the "other" category.

They're actually popularity polls, which are for some reason, labelled as awards. Misleading.

I don't think they are bad either. The problem isn't just crunchyroll. It is also the judges and voters. It isn't crunchyrolls fault that that everyone voted for my hero academia. Did the judges make it skewed? Maybe. Did crunchyroll tell them to? Maybe. But the voters voted. You can't do anything about that in an open contest. There is no way to please everyone. All they can do is slightly improve their methods each year.

I wouldn't care so much for awards show unless people show it to me. I also agree with first point of #post 17. I think it is fun to complain or ride your happy horse and go around about telling everybody that your opinion matters because it was done in a sacred ritual of giving noble status to anime titles.

It's 2018 but we are still seeing shitposts with mean score and normies. Real men don't troll on MAL, retard. They have a life, unlike you obviously. It doesn't take an anime expert or even somebody who hasn't watched anime at all to see the absolute lack of logic in both your posts.

When did i ever stated that i or anyone needed someone else to establish a opinion? What i said was that you should not discard the awards since despite being popularity based they are still important as a way to celebrate the medium and promote a discussion.
For example most movie enthusiast like the oscars not for the ceremony itself but to comment on what they think were the best and the worst candidates to win their respective category. Same can be said with the Game Awards.
My opinion will not sundly change or be more valid base on the fact that my pick for lets say "anime of the year" won or lost. What it does however is establish a bigger dialogue within the community with everyone sharing their thought on it on a more grander scale. You are free to dislike the anime awards as much as you want, however don't go on say that they shouldn't exist.

Sure you can disagree with selections and which show won, but everyone is overexagerrating. Just because a show won too many times or a show didn’t win doesn’t mean something was bad, but mainly that not many thought the same as them. You got people now dismissing others as if they got the winners wrong.
Mainly, I would complain about the nominations and not the winners. This is for the fans and the fans spoke, but people are mad that they didn’t ”Say the same words as them”
That ifony when people complain about favoritism with favoritism.

I don’t give a shit about them either. I never knew they existed until my brother told me.
I was only concerned at one thing and thats fans(so-called community) would vote for things they claim to hate. However, when Yuri on Ics won, I was laughing due to everyone complaining and it only showed how many people don’t represent the community or how their opinion doesn’t matter.
Sincerely, from Scorpio.
