I love sharing about award shows that fans can attend. A lot of people, myself included, like watching award shows when they are on Tv. When I was younger a friend invited me to go with her family to the CMT Music Awards. Even after that experience it never crossed my mind that there were other awards shows that fans could attend. For some shows, you can buy tickets in order to attend. Sometimes you can get free tickets to an award show by applying to be a seat filler.

Award Shows That Fans Can Attend By Buying Or Getting Free Tickets
Always be careful when you buy tickets for an award show. There are a lot of “concierge” companies who buy tickets to resell at crazy prices. There is no need to spend $2,5000 when you can pay $50-$150 or get them for free.

Award Shows You Can Attend By Being A Seat Filler
Award Shows With Red Carpets That Fans Can Go To
Golden Globes – I don’t recommend purchasing the Golden Globes package from The Beverly Hilton. It costs over $3,000. Audiences Unlimited did have a fan section on the red carpet this year for free. However, a friend who went said it was very disappointing. Since it was a free section they didn’t get the same view as those who paid $3,000 which makes sense. It did not sound like a great experience at all.
The Grammys – I was supposed to go to the red carpet for the Grammy’s this year but due to a change of plans I was unable to attend. MasterCard had a promotion where any cardholder who filled out their sign up form was given two tickets to the red carpet. Definitely a great reason to become a master cardholder.
Oscars – The only way you can make it inside the Oscars is if you are invited or are a seat filler. In order to be a seat filler for this show, you have to be related to a member of the Academy. The only option that fans have is to apply to attend the red carpet. In addition to getting to see all the stars you also get a swag bag and your own private viewing party. I had the best experience doing this.
People’s Choice Awards – A small number of seat fillers were selected to go to the red carpet. It was a very small fan section so if you want the chance to do this in 2018 you need to check in very early.
SAG Awards – In order to attend the red carpet for the SAG awards you have to win a bid on the tickets. This is all handled directly through SAG. The ticket link is not live at the moment.
