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.
