The Celebrity Dream Come True
For a celebrity to be awarded these awards – any one of them – is nothing less than a dream come true. Additionally, these stars are chosen after criteria for the awards are met, and obviously, there are no biases involved.
Most of the recipients have given their life’s hard work to their work in their respective fields; if such excellency is not appreciated and lauded the right way, it would be unfair.
