There are long lists and there are really long lists. Then there’s the What Car? Car of the Year long list.

More than 200 models are up for a gong at the What Car? Car of the Year Awards in January, and each one has been circulated via a press release. Two hundred cars.

Too many? I think so.

If you think that’s bad, wait until the flurry of tweets following the announcement of all 23 category winners on Tuesday 14 January. Mute button at the ready.

I get it. When tables at the awards event cost up to £5,580, it’s important to keep the manufacturers guessing. Everyone could be a winner, as Errol Brown nearly sang.

Meg Ryan Steps Out Without Engagement Ring Amid a Report She's Split from John Mellencamp

  Meg Ryan Steps Out Without Engagement Ring Amid a Report She's Split from John Mellencamp Meg Ryan Steps Out Without John Mellencamp Engagement RingOver the weekend, the When Harry Met Sally actress, 57, attended the Governors Awards, where she was seen without her engagement ring from the rocker, 68. On Wednesday, US Weekly reported that she has ended their engagement — the same day she was spotted out again without the ring.

But the long list is so lengthy, it stretches almost as far as the Mitsubishi Mirage. Almost.

There can be only one (across 23 categories)

Thirteen cars are up for best estate car, while nine are in with a chance of winning coupe of the year. Not bad, considering hardly anyone is buying coupes.

Speaking of which, ‘coupe SUV’ is a new category for 2020, and it contains a thoroughly depressing list of nine cars, none of which are actually coupes. Giving them a category will only encourage manufacturers to build more of them.

There are 15 cars in the running for sports SUV, including four Audis and four BMWs. To paraphrase Connor MacLeod, there can be only one sports SUV of 2020.

Here’s the full list of nominees for the 2020 Golden Globes

  Here’s the full list of nominees for the 2020 Golden Globes Here’s the full list of nominees for the 2020 Golden GlobesThough the Globes’ impact on eventual Oscar nominees is debatable (sometimes the Globes and other awards are seen as determining factors in who will do well at the Oscars), the awards ceremony is usually considered one of the more fun shows on the circuit. Alcohol is served, and the attitude at the ceremony tends to be more candid, entertaining, and light-hearted.

I’d list all 200 cars here, but you’d slip into a coma before wearing out your scroll pad. Rest assured, if you think of a car, it’ll be on the list. Unless you’re thinking about the Ford Ecosport, Vauxhall Crossland X or Mitsubishi Mirage.

Perhaps the awards ceremony will be like a school sports day, where everyone from Sporting Sam to Must-Try-Harder Millie are given a certificate for taking part.

Even Must-Try-Harder Mirage.

Are there too many car awards? Are we at the point at which we need to award trophies for the best awards? Probably.

In the meantime, give yourself an award for making it to the end of another opinion piece.
