Best: Awards? What Awards?
Over the past few years, Dick Clark Productions has more than doubled its value by producing award shows that emphasize the show over the awards, and this meant that on last night’s broadcast, not a single one was handed out in the entire first hour. This, in turn, meant more pool-side performances and less acceptance speeches awkwardly cut short, more Taylor Swift dancing and less Taylor Swift reaction shots, and more country artists playing their hits and less country artists congratulating themselves for making them. It's hard to imagine anyone complaining.
