Animation superior. Storytelling inferior.

Also, the "epic" music of the show is very repetative.

Beyond that, in this thread you are the only one to want more awards for this show. Yet you write 'those', 'we' and so on. It's pretty hard to defend the opinion of an unspecfied group of people without proof of their collective opinions (surveys etc.), keeping the argument on a personal level ('I', 'me') is easier and probably closer to the actual truth. Not to be rude, it's a pet peeve of mine.
While no one else here has spoken up about wanting this show to be good, it is fairly safe to assume that there are those who do besides myself, since whenever the Bay movies were in the same position of being nominated for several awards, all those who enjoyed the movies spoke up about wanting them to win as many categories as possible. The same can logically be applied to fans of TF: Prime who care about this show just as much as those who care about the movies. Why, some of them could very well even be the same people.

And, it should be plainly obvious that the show's creators themselves would want this show to be as successful to win awards and such. Otherwise, they wouldn't have praised their work so much and/or built up so much hype for it in interviews, convention panels, etc. Of course they want this show to do very well since they're the ones who made it and put so much effort into making it. It wouldn't make sense for them to make a show and not care about its success. They might as well not even try if they didn't care. That's bad business.

Are you saying that a cartoon's animation is/should be more important that its story? Or that you simply feel that TF: Prime's animation looks to be better made than its story?

If the latter, I can see how one would think that they put more effort into the animation that the story at times, but it has gotten better.

If the former, I saddened to hear this. >:oP

THIS.

I'm waiting for the season finale for something to happen, because the "filler" episodes in this series just aren't worth watching.

It's hiding behind an anonimous mass to defend an opinion, there is no proof at all that there is even a single soul who agrees with you. Even if you find someone who completely agrees, there's still 'just' two opinions and not an assumed mass. This doesn't invalidate you opinion, though. IMO it's both safer and more honest to claim to it is ONLY your opinion at this point, otherwise I'd like to see a stat or an other form of proof.

It wouldn't surprise me if the creators of the show would like more awards, they made the show, we are watchin it. Different perspective.

Finally, if an award loses value after winning it twice, that logic would imply that if the same show would win ALL award twice in a row... ALL those awards would lose value. Rendering them useless a third time over as no more external validation could be awarded?
