    4. Summer Manning

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

    5. Timothy Smith

    9. yikes

      i like that thing in the background

    10. jay Lewis

      Truth be told ebby this is probably the first time I watched through the entire ad at the end๐Ÿ˜‚

    11. Alana Sindelar

      I absolutely love the kids choice awards

    12. Dell12 16

      I just donโ€™t care about the awards

    13. dip doop

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

    14. MIKE R E V I E W S

      Academy awards show eddy the 1 youtuber in the universe

    15. Amanda Mills

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

    16. Android 18

      I noticed you looked slimmer. Good job dude.

    17. Fob Burgerson

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

    18. No No No No


    19. Shelby Atencio

      React to Howard Duck

    20. festus ewere

      This is lovely

    21. Madison Rose

      Eddy, you never disappoint. Great and funny video ๐Ÿ˜†

    22. Tymber Lance

      Great ad at the end. Very funny.

    23. Jay McPeak

      I need to see Martin Scorsese get slimed now.

    24. gibus theinfamous

      Kids Choice Awards is the underdog of awards shows.

    25. festus ewere


    26. just kidding

      The bts joke!!!๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

    27. Animonkey

      When The Last of Us part 2 won 6 awards

    28. qopoy dnon

      it would be perfect.

    29. pilgrimwagnerr

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

    30. this channel exists for some reason

      GODDAMMIT Eddy STOP making me LAUGH!

      1. this channel exists for some reason

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

      2. qopoy dnon

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

    31. andybaldman

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

    32. kro_the_crow

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

    33. Young MC

      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.

    34. yellow crocs

      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

    35. yellow crocs

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

    36. Cel

      Drew said to thank you so thank you

    37. Twocca

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

    38. Matt Laham

      Eddy your videos are so rewatchable lol

    39. seeni gzty

      it would be perfect.

    40. GomerJ

      Iโ€™m just reeling from the fact that one of the top auto-fills on google was โ€œwhere do I watch The Croodsโ€

    41. JamFog

      Iโ€™m still salty that the lighthouse and Willem Dafoeโ€™s role in that didnโ€™t get a single nomination in the oscars. Parasite was still a good best picture that year though.

      1. seeni gzty

        she would be kicked out of the judging group.

    42. Pug Donkey

      I read the title as why are awkward shows so awkward

    43. Eric aka Mr. Struggle

      i mean i can imagine giant circle jerks can be awkward

    44. LukeRen SSB

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

    45. Enigma NL

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

    46. signinas CB

      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.

    47. Larenzo Cole

      R.I.P Ray Jay ghost :(

    48. NerdOfVideoGames

      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

    49. Rey Skywalker

      The problem with the kidโ€™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 itโ€™s just tik tokers and people who Iโ€™m not even sure some kids exactly know

    50. Ailsa Ni

      it would be perfect.

    51. 7 Time YouTube Outlaw

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

    52. Abraham Ben-dayan

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

      1. Ailsa Ni

        Had to dislike cause of the raycon ad

    53. vicwaju

      rip ghost ray jay

    54. Sean Flynn

      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

    55. Ascender


    56. Alexandrea Ciardella

      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.

    57. 1by1

      i read this as why are awkward shows so awkward lol

    58. Elle B

      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 (donโ€™t get me wrong, the actual electoral college sucks and has actual important consequences, unlike at these award shows)

    59. Gale Isnโ€™t cool

      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 โ€œoh my god i gotta vote rnโ€ and all my friends would be like โ€œwhat movie did you vote for i voted for thisโ€ 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

    60. Redloxer25

      What happened to gus and eddy videos other than the podcast

    61. LetsCrashThisParade

      @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

    62. Luke Staten

      La La Land is still best picture of 2017 IMO

    63. YobanashiMemory

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

    64. PaulSauce

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

    65. Todd Blair

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

    66. James Rogers

      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.

    67. Noah White

      Had to dislike cause of the raycon ad

    68. Annette Denomatth

      Best sponsor ad ๐Ÿคฃ lmao

    69. Maia T

      if these hosts are not going to bring me Audrey Plaza at the Spirit Awards energy then they don't deserve to be hosts

    70. Will Smidt

      Commenting for engagement

    71. Avery

      My love and prayers go out to eddy as he deals with the loss of ray j. He seemed like the best ghost roommate and he will be missed.

    72. Meme Dumpster

      Your videos always make me laugh so hard :)

    73. AMJ Short Films

      I love all the Tyler, The Creator love

    74. a person

      La La Land was definitely better than Moonlight, just sayin

      1. misuyy fong

        Do they really need to be recognized? It is just rich people petting them selfs on their back like their work is important, then just sitt on hugh piles of money...

    75. Sykesvillain

      I actaully teared up a little during the eulogy. RIP Rayjay's ghost

      1. misuyy fong

        good parts but its mostly cringe and people who just aren't gamers revealing the winners

    76. Matthew Stephens

      Eddy, My Man! Your sudden uptick in content uploads has been just flippin' AWESOME. I'm just a normal Dad guy with two boys, and being able to have you back in my downtime routine again is really cool dude. Thanks for being a great window for me, into what is going on since I dont have time for all that ๐Ÿ˜† I hope you see this mate. Cheers to you!

    77. Jasper Hilliker

      Award shows more like AWKward shows amirite folks

    78. Gustavo Ramos

      eff you I love you Eddy y'knowamasaing

    79. Dungus

      this is a great video. amazing work eddie.

    80. Lucas Kenny

      My mate didnโ€™t Even mention the Junos

    81. Crunchyboi O

      Eddy: makes merch People who like money: itโ€™s free real estate

    82. Madeleine H

      Watching the golden globes as a live stream on crunchy roll would be so amusing

    83. igor simcik

      Omg great video eddy burbank

    84. Harper

      Boy says โ€œalright Iโ€™m gonna yโ€™all about the prestigeโ€ and mentions zero drowned clones??? I feel lied to

    85. Cyborg Rhys

      THANKYOU for more good content dude!

    86. MJFADEAWAY22

      Iโ€™m dumb, I thought it said why are awkward shows so awkward

      1. vliduu zeeb

        "My grandma passed away and i'll like to thank her fo-" S L I M E D

    87. Zach Ball

      A little rigged each year? lol and I can tell you what happened with macklemore. The people who you said don't care about award shows care about award shows.. And nobody has respected nickelodeon and their pedophile producers.

      1. vliduu zeeb

        Seems like award shows are getting less popular because they focus on politics so much, and none of them know very much about politics

    88. D

      We need an award show for award shows

    89. Rice

      In my opinion the game awards is the absolute worst there are random gamer ads and some of the games that win the awards are just wrong for example I highly doubt that last year the ff7 remake soundtrack won over the doom eternal soundtrack or the p5r soundtrack and some of the choices for game of the year are sometimes wrong like 2019 sekiro won which is wrong as it was up against death stranding and the stellar resi 2 remake I think there was some sort of paid win for that but the game awards does have its good parts but its mostly cringe and people who just aren't gamers revealing the winners

    90. Mushibuh

      Do they really need to be recognized? It is just rich people petting them selfs on their back like their work is important, then just sitt on hugh piles of money...

    91. ีผ Rikimaru

      good pro

    92. Zpinch Micronova

      Don't buy raycons they are trash

    93. kinshuie

      theyre awkward because the majority of human interaction is awkward. or is that just me

    94. Tyfoon Lagoon

      You know Eddy is amazing when you get excited for the Raycon Ad๐Ÿ˜‚

    95. Harley HackEmUp

      Including new categories could be interesting as well, like stuntmen and women do an exceptional amount of insanely hard work and get little to no credit. Making playlists of the artists nominated for music could make people more interested?

      1. TinyTeacup

        Ooh, that would be really cool!

    96. zuygj bnsv

      "My grandma passed away and i'll like to thank her fo-" S L I M E D

    97. ferret_ smoothie

      Are you using a blue yeti

    98. Brendan Lewis

      What about the game awards

      1. Farrell

        @zuygj bnsv I mean, it seems legit

      2. zuygj bnsv

        I feel bad for the people that think this crap is real

    99. Thomas Gourley

      I'd bet that part of the reason the views are down is because of the political BS spewed. Whatever side you're on, I don't care about your opinion. Your celebrity opinion on politics matter no more than my BS opinion on politics.

    100. Molly Dean

      If they were all slimed I might start watching the awards again. Watching all those dresses that cost more than my life getting destroyed would be entertaining.
