Teen Choice Awards?
Who else has a vendetta aginst it? huh?
Awards ceremonies, in general, really annoy the hell out of me anyway, but along comes a chance to remove the irritating and annoying stereotype given to 13-19 year olds, and America throws that idea on the floor each single year with the arrival of the teen choice awards.
I think the concept is a great idea, but this year, the show has once again proven it is onyl aiming at girls between the ages of 13 and 16, not as it claims, teens aged 13-19. The is year, Twilight took the crown – suprise suprise! Now I am a fan of the Twilight books, but the movies are horrendously badly written and made; the only thing that saves them is the occasional stripping of Taylor Lautner.
Teenagers are highly impressionable people – we need to educate their tastes, not feed their ridiculous obsessions, I mean, lets be realistic here – what 13 year old is going to have a hope in hell of getting with one of the stars they crave? Answer: none. The teen choice awards should showcase the best stars of teen culture, not the most obsessed over! Take british programme the inbetweeners for example – The show gets barely 1 million televison viewers, but each second of the show is top quality entertainment for teenagers.
I also consider myself a big fan of The Vampire Diaries, but should that really be in the Teen Choice awards? Its maybe a little too raunchy and gory for 13 year olds, fair enough, the older ones might adore it, but still, this is the TEEN choice awards, not the older teens choice awards. It has to apply to everyone.
I also think the awards are very biased towards America. They completely ignore the best talent coming from the UK, Canada, Austalia, New Zealand, France, Africa and India. Again, there is an need to draw attention away from the likes of Twilight and there is exceptional talent coming from all over the globe that is ignored for no reason.
I personally would have liked to see Whip It get a nomination for Ellen Page, because she as an actress, is constantly exceptional in every role she plays!
And another note to think on about Twilight – isn’t it ironic that the last two movies aren’t going to be released until november next year, when usually they chuck them out in just months. Two words for you – Harry Potter. Isn’t it strange how the come out after the whole Harry Potter finale? Do they really care about losing fans? I think for the producers, money is the only issue.
