  • wow, best youtuber of the year. i am honored.

    • Guess you could say... you have the bees knees...

    • Congrats

    • So true true eddy you deserve more subs than pewdiepie

    • Good job for gettimg the youtuber of the year award im proud of u.Keep it up and keep making swanky vids.👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

    • Big fan Eddy appreciate how you naturally apply what you've learned in college. Very, very NATURAL comedic vibe reader. LOVE THE PODCAST

  • Good points. Awards shows should make themselves available to watch online because that’s where people are and not that much people have cable anymore. I know for sure I would watch the Oscars if they were made available online but who knows

  • watch indian award shows they're fun

  • I watch the brits every year because I’m British and I have actually watched the things being nominated. And I like to get angry every time mrs browns boys wins the comedy award. They have really good hosts as well and I actually enjoy it.

  • Answer: Hollywood is full of creeps, narcissists, and pedos

  • The new merch is SICKENING 🌺🏵️🌸🌻🌷 take all of my money 💰

  • eddy should've gotten slimed during the eulogy

  • I read this as "Why are awkward shows so awkward?" Then got confused to why you were talking about award shows

  • Eddy has clearly only heard thrift shop from Macklemore. Kendrick definitely better but the rest of those fools have very shallow music.

  • My personal award show you-can’t-go-home-again moment was when, due to Viacom shenanigans, Daft Punk (RIP) had to cancel a Colbert Report appearance at the absolute last second so it wouldn’t “conflict” with their forthcoming involvement at the VMAs, which turned out to consist of handing an award to Taylor Swift and losing their only nomination of the night to a fan vote where they were up against peak-era One Direction

    • Incidentally this was the Miley Cyrus Twerkgate year so if MTV’s plan was to maximize realtime exposure of that moment among Daft Punk fans, um, good work, guys

  • he didn't he never mentioned um the game awards

  • at first I thought the title said why are awkward shows so awkward

  • That ad read was great dude x

  • Totally unrelated, but there's a tumbnail of who I guess is James Charles in the side bar. Why does he look like Wolverine, and why isn't this being discussed anywhere on the internet?

  • Am I still upset about Yummy being nominated for a grammy? Yes, yes I am.

  • Where👏 are👏 the👏 reaction 👏videos?

  • "Start sliming people who win awards" Well they do slime people, but its before the voting, and behind closed doors.

  • Hey teddy bareback I think you should actually deserve that role if it even exists. Your my favorite USdosr you make great videos. :D

  • "Moonlight got it's spotlight taken away" no eddy spotlight won best picture the year before

  • You can tell award shows are just the elite giving the elite prizes especially when eddy burback took the stage.

  • One thing we can agree on is that they got it right when Random Access Memories got album of the year and Get Lucky got best song.

  • Geoff Keighley's Game Awards do a good job with the voting by giving the responsibility it to news outlets and review sites.

  • I wish I could get slimed.

  • I have cable. But only because my internet provider includes it with the package. But i never use it, also cause it's the bare minimum with only ABC, FOX, ETC

  • You have a good point. Also awkward is the new logo showing Oscar inside of the Letter A. Some forms of it greatly resemble the mens restroom logo. The old one represented cinematic closure.

  • I lost hope in award shows when it took farrr too long for DiCaprio to get one and ik that’s cliche but it’s the truth. Nobody is quite as versatile and dedicated to their role where they embody and aren’t acting but BECOME the character like he does. He’s been acting since he was a kid and yet he only has ONE to his name...? A disgrace honestly

  • when my favourite band (Justice) won electronic album of the year at the Grammys in 2019, their award wasn't even part of the televised portion of the Grammys. I was able to find a high-quality cut of their acceptance speech after the fact, but I didn't even bother to watch the hours-long televised portion (we still had cable at the time) because it wasn't worth it to me

  • The moonlight debacle was a setup. They even made the director share his Variety cover with the director of lala land when in the past only the BP director had the cover.

  • New intro: “welcome burback my eddies”

  • nice video

  • I mean eddy is definitely an upgrade for youtuber of the year compared to tana mongrel or whatever her name is

  • Don’t forget, Your name and A silent voice lost to boss baby. Fuck

  • I bought the yikes crew neck merch and it came in today and I fucking love this sweatshirt it's actually pretty high quality stuff compared to most youtuber merch

  • Eddy looks like a Pixar dad

  • Wow amazing

  • Eddy, you’re so mean to poor Jeremy Renner.

  • The KCAs fuckin SLAPPED! I remember the years they were hosted in the UK instead of America and I lost my mind

  • I feel like eddie would love the shitshow that is the rock and roll academy of fame induction ceremonies

  • Love to see that eddy is a tyler the creator fan

  • my friend made me watch this.

  • I spent the entire video saying "what about the kids choice awards" and Eddy HAD MY BACK

  • i like that thing in the background

  • Truth be told ebby this is probably the first time I watched through the entire ad at the end😂

  • I absolutely love the kids choice awards

  • I just don’t care about the awards

  • Ricky Gervais roasting Hollywood celebrities while being a Hollywood celebrity is pretty cringy imo

  • Academy awards show eddy the 1 youtuber in the universe

  • I cried during the ad read... Am I normal?

  • I noticed you looked slimmer. Good job dude.

  • "The world is dying and we're litteraly not doing anything about it" "get slimed! Are you kidding me"

  • Yikes

  • React to Howard Duck

  • This is lovely

  • Eddy, you never disappoint. Great and funny video 😆

  • Great ad at the end. Very funny.

  • I need to see Martin Scorsese get slimed now.

  • Kids Choice Awards is the underdog of awards shows.

  • Wow

  • The bts joke!!!😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  • When The Last of Us part 2 won 6 awards

  • it would be perfect.

  • This thumbnail is so fucking awkward it took me a full week to realize my boy Eddy uploaded a new video.

  • GODDAMMIT Eddy STOP making me LAUGH!

    • @qopoy dnon OK? I think you misinterpreted this comment. I just meant that Eddy is very funny.

    • Awards are stupid. People can decide for themselves what's good and what's not.

  • *They're awkward to make people like you do free advertising videos about them. And you took the bait.*

  • I got a fucking ad for the oscars during this I hate u Eddy /j

  • Harvey Weinstein was also one of the first guys who really focused a lot of his energy on awards shows for his studio. He realized that if you can schmooze to win awards, then you could easily rack up a lot of wins for your studio by buying the right content and schmoozing in the right way. He also realized what you described-using the massively recognized prestige of the Oscars and other awards as a marketing strategy for your films. So you can thank Harvey Weinstein for creating the modern corruption we witness at these events. They were always corrupt but he was one of the first of the modern era to really milk it for all its worth.

  • imo the independent spirit awards are the best awards cuz its on the beach in the afternoon and everyones a bit drunk and no ones dressed up

  • the 'lunches' that get ppl to win awards seems like something management makes artists do rather than something they actually enjoy doing lmao

  • Drew said to thank you so thank you

  • Whenever someone wins an award it should me answered by Ricky Gervais roast them

  • Eddy your videos are so rewatchable lol

  • it would be perfect.

  • I’m just reeling from the fact that one of the top auto-fills on google was “where do I watch The Croods”

  • I’m still salty that the lighthouse and Willem Dafoe’s role in that didn’t get a single nomination in the oscars. Parasite was still a good best picture that year though.

    • she would be kicked out of the judging group.

  • I read the title as why are awkward shows so awkward

  • i mean i can imagine giant circle jerks can be awkward

  • And best movie goes to... The Last of us: Part 2

  • Awards are stupid. People can decide for themselves what's good and what's not.

  • There will never be a more entertaining awardshow moment then when the icon, the legend Marcel Reich-Ranicki refused the lifetime award at the 'german televisionawards' and proceeded to drag the entire german television industry and roasted every single person at the awards. Live on national television. For 3 whole minutes. Fucking iconic.

  • R.I.P Ray Jay ghost :(

  • Me before watching: "I wonder if Eddie is gonna talk about THAT Grammy's moment" *Eddie 9 minutes in* E: "I'm gonna talk about a situation from music about half a decade ago" HERE WE GOOOOOO

  • The problem with the kid’s choice awards now is that no one really that notable attends them anymore. Back in the day like Katy Perry would go, Will Ferrell, Gwen Stefani, etc etc. Now it’s just tik tokers and people who I’m not even sure some kids exactly know

  • it would be perfect.

  • I think you'll need to be on the platform more than once every month or 3. Just sayin.

  • Conspiracy theory: I think they purposely announced best picture wrong for views and media attention (since the Oscars are slowly becoming irrelevant)

    • Had to dislike cause of the raycon ad

  • rip ghost ray jay

  • Mac Miller Nipsey Hussle Travis Scott Pusha T and Cardi B were all nominated for album of the year in 2018 Cardi b won over Swimming Astroworld Daytona and Victory lap some of all of those artists best work and they all got beat out by Cardi B

  • yes

  • My old high school drama teacher was a judge for one of the movie awards shows. She said that if she let us see who was nominated or if she let us see the film they sent her, she would be kicked out of the judging group.

  • i read this as why are awkward shows so awkward lol

  • When the American voting system was established, there was the debate between only the uppity folks voting or everyone voting, the same thing is happening here. Now we have the electoral college as a compromise. I think an equivalent of an electoral college in award show voting would be a nice solution (don’t get me wrong, the actual electoral college sucks and has actual important consequences, unlike at these award shows)

  • I liked the voting the kids choice awards had. Like someone else picks the nominees and we all voted for it like that entertained the fuck out of little baby 8 year old me. Like i used to get excited for the awards cause “oh my god i gotta vote rn” and all my friends would be like “what movie did you vote for i voted for this” and i just remember it being so exciting. And the ads for it were exciting. It was just exciting. Nothing is exciting ab any other award show. It just exists and its like theres no fun to it, i can just google the results tomorrow instead of wasting like 2 hours of my time i can use to watch funny tik toks or something

  • What happened to gus and eddy videos other than the podcast

  • @The whole cable part: Wait till he finds out what it's like outside of the US and how they try their hardest to make it IMPOSSIBLE to watch the Oscars in Australia

  • La La Land is still best picture of 2017 IMO

  • I was waiting for him to get slimed at the end of his Raycon speech

  • At first I read it as "Why are awkward shows so awkward?" and I was really confused

  • Chet Hanks for Golden Globes Host 2022.. BOOYAKA BOOYAKA - YERRRR!

  • Moonlight and La La Land are two films nobody really cares about. They at best will be the subject of a Trivial Pursuit game question due to the award mixup.

  • Had to dislike cause of the raycon ad
