Default Does anyone care about MTV's Video Music Awards?

On Tuesday, MTV dropped the nominations for the upcoming 2019 Video Music Awards. The announcement barely made a blip among more prominent news items such as what happened in the “Big Little Lies” finale and A$AP Rocky’s ongoing imprisonment. Alas, MTV isn’t the cultural force that it once was.

Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift headlined the announcement, each garnering 10 nominations. Emerging artists Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X trailed closely with nine and eight noms, respectively. Plenty of recognizable names populated the list of nominees, including Cardi B, Lady Gaga, Drake and the Jonas Brothers.

Regardless of the A-list talent up for awards, it’s not likely many will even tune in to see who will win a Moonman. At a time when Hollywood’s legacy awards shows seem just as likely to generate a critical backlash as a ratings windfall, people are questioning whether even the most enduring ceremonies matter. But the decline of MTV’s VMAs predates all that.

Recent VMA ceremonies have been notable for not being notable, a casualty of indifference from viewers and stars alike. In 2017, Frank Ocean premiered an episode of his radio show during the festivities, apparently unafraid of programming against the event. (The host of that year’s show, Katy Perry, joked that half of MTV’s target audience was instead enjoying the season finale of “Game of Thrones.”) Last year’s VMAs performed worse than the episode of “WWE Raw,” which aired the same night, according to Deadline.

The moment the VMAs ceased to matter might have come earlier. Maybe it happened in 2014, when Drake won best hip-hop video for his crooning pop ballad “Hold On (We’re Going Home),” and didn’t bother appearing to receive his award. Or maybe it was even earlier than that: The Associated Press compared the energy of the VMAs to the scripted reality TV show “Cribs” all the way back in 2006.

This year’s VMAs present another opportunity for us to scratch our heads and wonder why the show is still around. But at least this round of nominations is making news: The show’s new “Best K Pop” category has infuriated corners of the Internet, spawning hashtags like #VMAsRacist. Some people are giving VMAs the same sort of attention that the Oscars have gotten lately, but not in the way MTV might have hoped.

God bless you and the beautiful precious always!!!


P.S. And its his singing that I would rather hear compared to anyone else's these days too.
Go here to check out my most favorite singer, James Otto, when you can!
