Drama Awards

Acting can be an incredibly rewarding profession (or pastime, depending on your level of participation). There's nothing like the feeling of a strong ovation after pouring your heart and soul into a stage role. For television and film actors who don't get to hear an audience cheer at the end of their performance, reading positive reviews and receiving personal feedback are a vital source of inspiration.

Awarding Great Acting

We live in a society that clearly appreciates the art of acting. The popularity of drama on the stage, on television and in the theaters is a testament to this fact, as is the popularity of drama awards shows. People love seeing the best shows of the year and then trying to speculate whose performances will win the most awards.

When you consider how unlike acting is to other types of competitive events and sports, it's somewhat surprising how common (and popular) drama awards really are. And yet in the United States alone we have the Emmys (for television), the Tonys, as well as those unforgettable Oscars. Drama awards are even common in small schools around the country.

The Academy Awards is one of the biggest annual televised events in the world, which shows that a love for acting (and for its stars) isn't an exclusively American phenomenon. Young people just getting into acting dream of one day winning an Oscar and giving a teary-eyed acceptance speech. For an actor, this can truly be the ultimate reward for your life's work.
