Complete List of 2012 Televised Award Shows

UPDATED 11/20/2012 

Check out the 2013 list here.

We here at ActualSchedules have made a new year’s resolution to include more award shows in our diet. To that end, we have made a list of all the awards shows that we could think of. Each entry on this list has to meet three criteria:
  1. Be an awards show
  2. Be televised
  3. Be televised in the USA
Below is the list that we came up with. If you can think of any additional awards shows that meet the above criteria, or can help us with any of the dates, times, or networks of the below award shows, please help us out and leave a comment
