.... and I didn't even prepare a speech

Award or Perfume?
I don't know about everybody else but I just find award shows to be the most tacky sickening thing on TV, especially when you add the likes of James 'The Fat Twat' Cordan [click the link]. I guess what I'm trying to say in my own special way is, did anybody else watch the BRIT awards?

Award shows are bad enough without having to invite Americans along to pretend they care that they've been nominated for a BRIT award. Now don't get me wrong I haven't jumped on the 'lets all hate America' bandwagon which seems to be very popular nowadays, but I just don't see why the likes of Rihanna and Justin Bieber would come all the way down here to see artists they've never even heard of get an award they only found out exsisted ten minutes ago.

The other thing that irritated me is that in an attempt to try and gather some British pride they got Dame Vivienne Westwood to design the award, which was a stupid idea really given that Vivienne Westwood is a designer of 'punk' clothing, resulting in an award that looks like a bottle of Geri Halliwell perfume.

What I can say about us British is that we know how to put on a show, even if you're not a fan of Plan B or Tinie Tempah you should watch the videos to the end just to see how over the top our award ceremonies are:

  1. Poor choice of music, there are many better British artists there. And I agree with you on the America bit. I doubt they really care.

  2. I really do hate award shows. They are really boring and to be honest half of them don't really deserve an award. What have they actually achieved?

  3. lol the bandwagon grows daily, glad you haven't jumped on yet though :P. Yeah I think it's mostly for publicity. The more we hear their names the more likely we'll buy their music. Advertising people o_O.

    I love the orchestral arrangement in that video by the way.

  8. @Fünf: because we have deep shared memories of hilarious drunken Oscar acceptance speeches, and all secretly believe that someday they will happen again. :)

  12. I can't stand awards shows, especially American ones. I guess I'm not one for overt displays of narcissism.

  13. I actually like James Cordan but I agree with you about the award shows (except the one presented by Jonathan Ross) - Its even worse when the winner couldn't be bothered to turn up to accept their award!

  19. I usually don't go out of my way to watch an award show but if I'm channel surfing I'll probably get sucked in to it.
