Acceptance speeches are extremely my shit

Aaron Edwards on the thrill of emotional displays of gratitude.

From the glamorous wardrobes to the drama of competition, awards shows allow viewers to share in the excitement and glitz of the entertainment world. Often broadcast live, the appeal of ceremonies like the Oscars and the Tony Awards hinges on suspense and our own fierce opinions of who's deserving of acclaim and who is not. The best part? When winners take to the mic, in tears or in triumph, to accept their coveted awards. Watch this episode of Extremely My Shit to learn why Outline Special Projects Editor Aaron Edwards finds comfort in acceptance speeches and all the joy, sobbing — and falls — that come along with them.
