The winners of SBS Entertainment Awards 2019 has been announced and Running Man bagged big at the star-studded event. The popular variety show took home six awards, including the Grand Prize (Daesang). Other big winners of the night were Delicious Rest Stop, Master in the House, My Ugly Duckling and Flaming Youth.
During the 13th annual award ceremony, Master in the House took home five awards, including the Producers' Award, and Delicious Rest Stop bagged four awards, including the Lifetime Achievement Award. Meanwhile, My Ugly Duckling and Flaming Youth received three awards each, including the Top Excellence Award for a Reality show and Excellence Award for Variety show.
As the big winner of the night, Grand Prize winner Yoo Jae Suk thanked all his family members, friends and colleagues for their love and support. After receiving the Daesang, the actor also paid tribute to late actors Sulli and Goo Hara, who were part of the Variety Show Running Man for some time. "I hope they are doing well in heaven. I am very grateful to them," he said.
Grand Prize nominee Kim Gura also had something to say about the award show. According to him, the broadcasting networks are continuously following the same old pattern for at least a decade. It is time to change the format and encourage new and talented people in the industry who deserve better recognition for their performances each year.
"Since there are so many nationally beloved programs that have been running for 5 or 10 years, the same shows are now receiving awards year after year in a rotating format. In my opinion, from now on, they should leave out useless people like me and nominate only people [who have a real shot at the award], like Baek Jong Won, Yoo Jae Suk, and Shin Dong Yup," Soompi quoted him.
