Because some things are recognized in their own time and awards are usually given in the moment when things are still new and fresh in people's minds.

You wouldn't want to wait, say, ten years to give out the Oscars. In that time you might have too much hindsight and not think anything that year was very good. Or, more importantly, it wouldn't matter so long after the fact.
