There are scads of awards shows each year, mostly featuring designer-clad celebrities handing honors of various shapes and sizes to other designer-clad celebrities in front of an audience stuffed with designer-clad celebrities.
Airing Saturday, Dec. 8, on NBC, the second annual American Giving Awards aims to be a little bit different. There will be designer-clad celebrities, but instead of statues, they'll be distributing $2 million in Chase grants to five featured charitable organizations, chosen from a group of 25 previous Chase Community Giving grant recipients.
Host for the evening is Joel McHale, star of the NBC comedy "Community," who explains to Zap2it how he got the job, saying, "Well, I did a relay race -- it was kind of a scavenger hunt -- and I won, and the prize is hosting the show."
