Social Media & Awards Shows

January 28, 2014

I must admit, I do not watch awards shows. No need to. Don’t care who wins. They are very expensive popularity contests and awards are given out to particular groups’ tastes to shape the future of their medium. I think I would rather watch reruns of “Golden Girls” than watch awards shows.

That being said, on Sunday evening Twitter was alive with the hubbub of social and political action occurring at the Grammy’s. People were “stunned,” “surprised,” and “appalled.” Really? These shows have become a breeding ground for those types of activities. It keeps them relevant and controversial. And what better way to get people to watch their show next year. These kinds of events are scripted and targeted for the greatest effect possible. After all, for them even bad publicity is good publicity.

What is the answer to those who do not like it? Turn it off! It is that simple. As long as we live in a free nation, we are not required to watch these things. Turn the television off and read a book. Go for a walk. Avoid social media for the evening. When you turn on the very thing you are railing against, you give them what they want – time and advertising. Why? Time + advertising = MONEY. That is why. If you really don’t like them and what they stand for, turn them off, stop talking about them and in turn you will no longer be contributing to their expensive event.
