It's crucial that I kind of keep up, without drifting into the backslapping land of cliche and lifetime achievement awards.
One of the many reasons I love living in New York is that we get a front row seat to the innumerable thrills that take place here - from conventions and awards shows, to parades and U.N. assemblies. But my favorite New York tradition is the annual New Year's Eve ball-drop on Times Square.
Awards are so unnecessary because I think we get so much out of our work just by doing it. The work is a reward in itself.
The last thing I want is to walk into my house after a long day and see all the Grammys and awards. It would make me feel weird.
If in my twenties I'd gotten one of the two-dozen roles that I did screen tests for and almost got, I think I would have become bored with the awards circuit, the whole hype machine.
Honorary degrees and lifetime achievement awards are very encouraging. I know that it might sound strange that a writer who has published many books still needs encouragement, but this is true.
Joyce Carol Oates
I don't read for amusement, I read for enlightenment. I do a lot of reviewing, so I have a steady assignment of reading. I'm also a judge for the Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards, which gives awards to literature and nonfiction.
Joyce Carol Oates
I've gotten tons of awards and I believe when it's my time to get a Grammy, I'll get a Grammy.
I have won many awards and I am very happy about this, but I am not the best player in the world.
Hollywood and fashion are symbiotic partners, especially during awards season.
I've never won many awards, I didn't get certificates for swimming or anything.
Me and my partner, Conway Twitty, cleaned up at the 1972 Country Music Association Awards.
I compose music for films, and by the grace of God, I've got a few awards. That's it.
A. R. Rahman
One thing is that I wasn't getting booked that well, and they had control over who got the awards, they had control over who sold. And they really did not want Willie or me, either one, to have a hit record. They wanted the money, but they didn't want us to be the ones.
I've won many awards and I want more. If you want to call it hunger then I'm hungry for awards.
Shah Rukh Khan
Awards are wonderful. I've been nominated many times and I've won many awards. But my journey is not towards that. If it happens it will be a blast. If it doesn't, it's still been a blast.
I am proud to be a role model for my viewers. I am finding out that helping victims is as or more rewarding the all the awards I win.
I'd rather go to the White House Correspondents' dinner than any awards show.
Just because you've made a couple movies, you've done some good movies, you've been nominated for some Academy Awards, whatever, nobody's entitled. It's a business. If they don't see it, I can think they're wrong, but I'm not entitled to a $15 million budget to make a film.
Now, there are so many movies, so many festivals, and so many awards going on, each judged with each other, like your work is worse than others and that's not fair. How can you tell what's best and what's worst from these awards? We're talking about art.
I don't know when acting came to be more about awards than about the work. Judging who's better than the other person shouldn't be part of why we're doing this job. It should be about entertaining people.
Thankfully, the meat of the Tony telecast is the performances from the shows, so the awards show kind of creates itself around the season, and then I fill in based on the vibe of the season in general. I'm happy that there'll be so many legitimately good performances on the show.
Neil Patrick Harris
At awards time, The Exorcist was nominated in 11 categories, everybody but the janitor was up for an Oscar. There was no category for what I did.
Although I may find the type of programming seen during the 2004 Super Bowl and the 2003 Golden Globe Awards disgusting and disturbing, we must always work hard to defend the cherished freedoms so clearly outlined in our Constitution, including a healthy and free press.
So how critics will perceive your film or your work, or whether your movie is going to make $100 million at the box office, or whether you are going to be winning any awards - well, you have no control over that.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
