5th Annual Global Demand Awards Format and Finalists Announced: Celebrating Exceptional Entertainment

15 November, 2022

Los Angeles (November 16, 2022) - Parrot Analytics announced the new format and finalists for the 5th annual Global Demand Awards, expanding the scope of the awards beyond just TV to also recognize the most in-demand movies and talent in the world for the year 2022.

For the third year in a row, the awards will be headlined by a virtual festival featuring interviews with the leading talent, executives, and creators behind today’s most in-demand global hits. “Demand Festival: Power Up!” will be held online from February 6 thru February 8, 2023. Winners in all categories will be announced in late January 2023.

This year’s Demand Festival will focus on the “powering-up” of an industry charged with latent energy from two years of slowed-down and interrupted production. Entertainment professionals will share their secret “power-ups” that boosted their strategies in developing the stories that captured global audience attention and helped make magic on our screens.

With a special focus on gaming and franchises, the Demand Festival will feature those who are leading the entertainment industry into a new era of creativity.

“What’s next for the ever-shifting landscape of entertainment? If the past five years indicated an era of fragmentation and multi-channel distribution, the next five seem primed for a pendulum-swing back to the world of consolidation and bundling,” said Brandon Katz, Industry Strategist for Parrot Analytics. “While audiences may soon have less choice of viewing platforms to find their next binge, they will continue to enjoy an endless menu of entertainment, ranging from blockbuster IP to niche and foreign language content. With so much entertainment created in one year, it’s vital to honor the series and films that break through the noise, attracting the most attention, time, and adoration from global audiences.”

In its fifth year, the Global Demand Awards will expand beyond TV and also recognize the exceptional films and talent driving global audience demand. Winners will be determined using Parrot Analytics’ global demand measurement system: A true reflection of audience desire for excellent storytelling and performance, with no “for your consideration” campaigns influencing the results.

The current finalists for each category are determined based on global audience demand data for the period January 1, 2022 – November 5, 2022. The winner’s announcement will incorporate data from the full calendar year of 2022.

The list of categories for the 5th Annual Global Demand Awards includes:
