Who does these?

Where do these awards come from? It seems like a very odd choice of nominees. I voted and was surprised by the leaders. I know others have differing tastes, but is there any validity to these? Looks like it's a way to promote a few shows that aren't so well known. http://www.werbranson.com/wrb-show-awards-2014.html

I have no idea who this is that's doing this awards program. But it is a pretty eclectic group of nominees -- and interesting to see who is leading in the voting.

It being so strange and eclectic, I decided not to look.

Is this a common thing? There seems to be so many awards in Branson that do not seem to have any accountability. Can anyone setup a website and just give out awards? It seems strange to me that these are based upon getting the public to vote on a few selected "nominees". It seems like it would be more of a popularity contest vs a real reflection of quality. Just my 2 cents.

As I said, I know others have different tastes. I'm just surprised that so many long standing shows and entertainers are missing and it seems to be a lot of the more obscure entertainers and shows that could use some publicity and maybe a few awards listed under their names.

Exclamation Meaningless awards

I have been nominated for "Best newcomer with absolutely no talent"!
I expect to win easily.
