In honor of the Emmy’s and all other award shows, I decided to go with the infamous, “….winner of five nominations!”
So, tell me if this is not the most annoying thing ever. ok, maybe not the most annoying thing, but it is right up there.
for many reasons.
first, if you are nominated, you haven’t won. flat out. end of story. there is no winner of nominations. you either win. or you don’t. LOL. sure, you have runner’s-up, but, nominated does not equal a win.
and to have more than one nomination and not win, to me, is a slap in the face. ok, so “if I was so popular to get more than one nomination, then why didn’t I win???” **insert whiney starlet voice**
Come on now. This is insane LOL. I feel bad for all those stars and starlets that get these “nominations” that are supposed to be so great rubbed in their faces.
It reminds me of the Two-and-a-Half men episode where Charlie is nominated and is tricked into going to the award dinner by everyone and, of course, doesn’t win…everyone both unintentionally and intentionally rubs it in his face.
It is not the actual fact of the nominations. hell, we need those if we are to have winners. One day, I want to be nominated for at least one of my books **hint hint** LOL. but, to have it lauded about “I am the winner of x-amount of nominations” **bouncing about happy-happy joy-joy** that is what needs to take the jump off the short pier.
You can even be as happy about the nominations as you want.
but, listen people….you do not win if you are just nominated. nominations do not equal a win LOL. ;-) hehehe
Also, just a quick side-note on this same topic…I have to thank Skyla Dawn Cameron for this idea to mention LOL…hey, talk show hosts / News Media….stop asking the celebs who they are wearing…they are not Leatherface or any other freak from a horror film/book…they are not wearing human skins. they are wearing clothes. think of a better phrasing….unless you really do want someone showing up in a human-skin suit ROFL
**None of these topics are meant to be aimed at anyone in particular. Some of them may touch a nerve, and I am sorry if they do, but these are my views. I am even guilty of using some of these and am trying to improve myself in regards to them. Besides, if we can’t laugh at some of the words/phrases we use, then this world is indeed too sad a place to be.**
**disclaimer: writer I am, writer I will always be. But spelling I never claimed to own. There will always be spelling errors, even with the aid of spell checkers. Unless I employ 20 proof-readers, and if I do that, you will never get to see these blogs…so, guess you will have to put up with the spelling errors….or do what I do. Blame it on the Typo-Fae and say the spelling errors occurred en-route ;-)**
