5,399 prizes given compared to 3,364 last year
December is traditionally the time of giving, and showbiz has kept that spirit up: So far this month, 173 awards have been doled out at 17 ceremonies, a respectable jump from last year’s 99 prizes at 14 events.But this rise is a mere pittance compared to the year’s overall tallies: There have been 5,399 prizes given out worldwide at 364 kudofests, a huge jump over the 3,364 kudos at 173 ceremonies last year. Clearly, 2007 is going to go down in the record books. But don’t become overconfident, all you showbiz folks: Keep it going, give until it hurts. After all, nothing says “Merry Christmas” quite like another trophy on the mantelpiece.
