There are many different events held each year to honor achievements in entertainment. Sometimes, people don’t even realize how prominent entertainment is in our daily lives. But the fact is that the entertainment industry is present in nearly every aspect of everything that we do. Whether you are watching TV, going to the movies, reading a book, seeing a show or even walking down the street and viewing advertisements, someone in the entertainment industry likely had some influence over what you are doing.Often, what first comes to mind when you think of entertainment is large-scale. Hollywood and movie stars are certainly a major player in the entertainment industry, and may often receive the most recognition because they are the most known. Some of the awards offered in this branch of the industry are also well known, like the Academy Awards or the Golden Globes. But beyond these two categories of awards, there are many other smaller categories of awards and honors that recognize achievements in entertainment.On the other hand, an area that is often overlooked in the entertainment industry is the education and training for up and coming talents. So many schools are quick to cut arts programs when they need to reduce their budgets and so performing arts are often left out of school curriculum. Fortunately, many groups and organizations are working to combat this problem, and philanthropic organizations have been launched to help save arts education in schools. In some communities, professionals in the performing arts work hard to ensure that aspiring talents have access to entertainment training and education. They are often honored for these efforts, which recognize the importance of providing a diverse education and background to all youth, regardless of budgeting limitations.Galas and ceremonies are often held to honor achievements in the arts and entertainment, which are often like a smaller scale awards show for Hollywood movie stars. Next time you think about achievement in entertainment, don’t forget about where all performers start out, as well as the arts and entertainment advocates who help them out.
