Members Weigh In on Awards Season 2017

With last night’s Academy Awards (congrats, Moonlight!), the award show season has come to a close. Throughout the past couple of days, we asked you about your interests and preferences when it comes to film and TV award shows. Here’s what you told us!

Most of you don’t follow award shows – but of those who do, 26% follow the Academy Awards.

Oscars - Reasons to Watch

What motivates those who watch to tune in? It’s a tight race between nominated films or shows (36%), red carpet fashion (34%), and nominated actors (30%).

When it comes to millennials who watch, fashion and films are tied at 35% each.

Oscars - Films

Of those who have, 20% said that La La Land or Hidden Figures were their favorite. But, among millennials, La La Land pulled ahead, with 23% saying it was top in their hearts.

Oscars - La La BP

Which it did…for a few seconds, before it was announced that there was a mistake, and “Moonlight” actually took home the big prize. Your reactions? Most of you (34%) said – “Wait, what??”

Even though many of you haven’t seen Moonlight or La La Land, most (54%) said you would watch a film after it wins an Oscar.

Oscars - 4070

We compared millennials answers about following actors or films on social media after winning an Oscar, to the same question about winning a Golden Globe – and the Golden Globes seem to hold more weight!


Did you watch the Oscars last night? What were your thoughts on the political speeches, the sentiments of equality, and that weeeeird Best Picture mix-up? And what films are on your list to watch now? Let us know, and share these insights with friends!
