Chicago, Ill. – Sponsorship spending on the Academy Awards, Grammy Awards and other televised awards shows is expected to total $139.2 million in 2016, up 4.3 percent from $133.5 million in 2015, according to IEG research.

The increase exceeds the projected 4.2 percent increase in entertainment spending but lags the 4.5 percent increase in overall North American sponsorship spending.

“While spending remains robust, the tendency among corporate marketers to view awards shows as pure-play media buys rather than integrated consumer engagement programs continues to hamper spending growth,” said William Chipps, IEG Sponsorship Report senior editor.

Personal care maintains its status as the most active category sponsoring awards shows. Personal care companies are 2.1 times more likely to sponsor the shows than the average of all sponsors.

L’Oréal replaces Procter & Gamble as the most active sponsor. Twenty-seven percent of properties with a sponsor in the personal care category report a partnership with the French cosmetics giant.

Mars, Inc. and Time Warner are the second most active sponsors (23 percent) with The Coca-Cola Co., Diageo and PepsiCo in third (18 percent).
