Comedian Jimmy  Durante was  fond  of saying "Everybody's got to get into the act!" This is none truer than with the numerous  award ceremonies that litter television throughout the  year. In 1995 Michelle Quinn of the San Francisco Chronicle counted 60 entertainment award shows, including at least 31 honoring film, 19 for television and 22 for music. At this rate, one day there will be a 24-hour-a-day cable channel for awards  shows. The following section lists major awards given by publishers, writers, directors and organizations to honor the television industry. Also included are awards that have originated within a TV programs such as the "Flying Fickle Finger of Fate Award" from the comedy variety show ROWAN & MARTIN'S LAUGH-IN/NBC/1968-73.

"But most of all, I wanna take this moment to thank the real, true TV viewers...People like me. People that are too lazy to read a book. Too tired to go out. Don't care what they're watching as long as their TVs on. The shut ins. The unemployed. People in prison. This is for you."
  --Drew Carey, The TV Guide Awards, 1999
