For many fans, it’s a moment of pure joy and excitement seeing their faves up on stage receiving an award and getting recognized for all their hard work. While this is the normal reaction by every fan from every fandom, the most recent awards show has been feeling the love in a completely different way.
By now everyone knows that the 2018 Asia Artist Awards (2018 AAA) was recently held and blew everyone away with some with some stunning red carpet looks…
And a lot of awards!
But that’s precisely why fans have taken to the internet to poke fun at the show. Because it wasn’t just a lot of awards. The 2018 AAA‘s boasted 40 different categories and multiple awards in most of them.
While there were some fans who were upset about some aspects of the show including all the awards…

AAA is such a mess… the sound sucks, the stages don’t even have a setup, they have no one announcing the awards so the artists just walk on stage with an award that has been given to them already, multiple groups have to be on stage to do their speeches at the same time…

so you’re telling me the award show is called AAA but they couldn’t put properly triple AAA batteries in the mic? cool.

maybe if AAA didn’t spend all their budget on getting awards for every fukcing person attending they would have had the money to afford decent mics for bts i’m TIRED

There were many others who decided to poke a little fun at the sheer amount of awards handed out by awarding some of their own! These new honors ranged from things that sounded like they could be legitimate awards…

And even though many fans were poking fun at all the awards given out over the course of the night, everyone couldn’t help but agree that all the awards were well deserved.
Say whatever you want but AAA giving artist of the year awards to bunch of artists is legit to me because everyone works hard and they definitely deserve it 😌
