In Progress

The same award is listed three times, each with repeated entries.

British Society of Cinematographers (https://www.imdb.com/event/ev0000129/2016/1/?ref_=ev_eh) has a "Operators Award": 


The same Award exists separately as an Operators Award (https://www.imdb.com/event/ev0003615/2016/1)
which lists the exact same nominees and winners. The confusion comes from the fact that this award is co-sponsoder by BSC and exists as it's own site. Still, the award entries should be limited to being entered once.

Adding to the confusion is the fact that recently yet another duplicate Award was added this time titled BSC Awards (https://www.imdb.com/event/ev0015610/2021/1) which lists The Camera Operators Award, which refers to the very same British Society of Cinematographers Operators Award mentioned above.

Seeing as how there's only three entries under this page, I propose that it be deleted as it is a complete duplicate and will only amplify confusion over time.

It would be great if the same can be done Operators Award as well, or at the very least the overlap be removed and there is a lot of overlap.

If you look at Mitch Durbin's Awards page (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0239307/awards?ref_=nm_awd) you will see an example of someone who has awards listed under the three duplicate award events.

Hi Reezy -

Thanks for reporting, I have filed a ticket for the appropriate team to investigate and clean-up the duplicate award listings and events.
