5 Reasons The Golden Globes Are Better Than The Oscars

Hooray! Award season has begun! On Sunday, the Golden Globe Awards will be handed out in Hollywood and I couldn’t be more excited. The Globes are my favorite award show of the season.

The People’s Choice Awards: The Winners We Just Can’t Agree With

I’m not exactly sure who The People are who end up casting votes for The People’s Choice Awards. Maybe they’re related to The Man? Based on last night’s award’s show, I’m guessing that most of them are—OH MY GAWD—obviously under the age of 14. A select few of the award winners seemed totally deserving. Like…

Carrie Underwood Reclaims Her Throne At The CMT Awards

Taylor Swift may be the princess of country music, but Carrie Underwood proved she was the not-that-much-older queen at last night’s CMT Music Awards. The former “American Idol” left the fan-voted show with two prizes, including the top honor of “Video of the Year” for her song “Cowboy Casanova.” This is the second time she…

Black Eyed Peas Accidentally Given Best International Group Award

At France’s NRJ music awards show yesterday, the Black Eyed Peas were, uh, accidentally announced as the winners of Best International Group. But no one came on stage to pick up the award—I guess even the Peas themselves were not under the illusion that they’re “best group” caliber. The presenters realized their mistake and re-awarded…
