    She is just pissed that since she is so ugly she could never win a Teen Choice Award for Hottest Actress.

    But it appears to be a Teen Choice 2015 surfboard behind her in her interview about Seaworld. Is she pissed she isn’t nominated or something?

  • scutis

    As garbage as all of these awards shows are, especially Viacom’s, sounds like someone is upset that they weren’t nominated for anything. I say ban all awards shows so we don’t have to hear the mundane words and thoughts of these celebrities as often.

    Seeing as how this is another attempt at getting attention, Im thinking she cares more than she lets on.

    These award shows are all rigged. People know in advance they are getting the awards.

    She is clearing using this a publicity ploy to garner the attention of hundreds of fandoms who vote every year. She is getting headlines at the TCA’s expense and some youtubers have done this before. Then when fans get frustrated at losing or not getting what they want, they praise the bashers.

  • Khazija

    Teen Choice Awards have given out awards in the past like the Acuvue Inspiration Award that does recognize celebs for charity or for drawing awareness to certain things. How can you give an award for the smartest and how does that relate to the entertainment industry in any way?
    The show is not completely rigged and voting does matter. There is a legal disclaimer where producers are required to electronically tabulate the site votes and monitor the twitter votings. Producers have final say but they do utilize voting. People have misunderstood past disclaimers.

    The fact is that competition and voting is a part of life. This sentiment can be applied to any awards show, not just Teen Choice. This backlash is going to hurt hundreds of fandoms, artists, actors, models, shows, film franchises, and networks with this TCA boycott/backlash. All it is going to do, is cause more trolling towards the TCA posts/account/winners. I saw something like this back in 2016. Less fans participate and vote, and then they hypocritically get angry when their favorites lose the awards. It is a toxic cycle. For a lot of celebs, shows, and musicians….the Teen Choice awards is the only current main award show where they can receive recognition for their accomplishments. Most of the awards are about recognizing the talent or hard work of a cast or musician or etc.

  • Khazija

    Bella Thorne’s show Famous in Love was nominated but it is clear they are not going to win. That fandom was not dominating the votes. She is bitter about that. She was nominated in the past, attended the show, and never won.

    Award shows should not be banned and this trend of celebs urging selfish boycotts is only going to hurt her peers who were nominated. Then tons of fans won’t watch and won’t vote.

  • Khazija

    They are not all completely rigged and it would actually be illegal for that to happen for the networks. Only the People’s Choice awards notify the winners in advance after the voting is done.

  • Khazija

    TCA is on Fox. The Teen Choice Awards and Kids Choice Awards were the only award shows that ever nominated her….so she is being ungrateful.

  • Khazija

    She is pissed that she and her show is obviously not going to win so she mocking the voting and 1 category for her own little vindictive attention-seeking agenda.

    Notice how you said “fandoms”. It’s not a good thing that people (not necessarily you) only find an identity in entertainment media, from what they see in the form of entertainment. The people you see on tv are not real and, in turn, people are less and less real by trying to emulate fantasy culture instead of finding their own personalities.

    Bella Thorne’s, nor any entertainment media figure’s, nominations and awards matter. The vast majority of these celebrities do no care about us and only see us as, for the lack of the better term, commoners. Most of them do not even have the care to inform their fans that its not them posting on their social media accounts. It’s their social media ‘ghost writers’ that do or, as i’ve seen in some cases, bots posting and replying to people.

  • Khazija

    That is not true. I highly disagree with you.

    A person being part of a fandom does not erase their identity. I think awards and nominations do matter to fandoms as well as to the majority of public figures who are nominated. Most of them are grateful for the recognition and it does have an impact on a person’s career & overall pr/support/activity. Whether the person is a civilian or a celebrity, awards do have value. Most people appreciate their accomplishments, talent, and efforts receiving acclaim of some kind and validation.

    I am aware that many celebs have social media managers but some of the tweets are authentic and some have directly expressed their gratitude whether on stage or via a message of some kind. Anyway, I don’t want to get into a debate about this.

  • scutis

    Well of course you would. You seem to be heavily invested in the entertainment industry. Either as a extremely ardent follower of it or perhaps even as someone in the industry. Given the amount of dedication you’re giving to it, I would definitely say that it has become your only identity. That’s on top of the agenda-driven tone to your comments.

    Which has apparently set off disqus’ AI moderation of spam, possibly causing your comments to be moderated more than usual. Am i right?

  • Khazija

    It is not my only identity. You know nothing about me or my personal life or charity work or activism or my background or stance on many societal issues. You know nothing about how my race, gender, or orientation, or experiences have defined my life or are a part of my identity. My tone is valid one and I was simply defending the right for award shows to exist as well as the impact of fandoms recognizing the work of people. You don’t need to take an antagonistic tone towards me.

    You also appear to be invested or interested in the entertainment industry considering you are repeatedly commenting on a website about the industry and celebrities. This is a celebrity website and somebody who truly is apathetic would not be posting on here. Move on.

  • scutis

    I didn’t mention anything about your personal life or other trendy identities. Thanks for confirming what we already knew though. I hope the industry is at least paying you well.

  • scutis

    You are correct Michael. People have this belief that it’s illegal to rig award shows but that really only applies to game shows where people win actual money. Anyone who says that award shows are not rigged are lying to people. Just google: are award shows rigged

  • Khazija

    You claimed that it was my only identity. I did not confirm anything to you. “Trendy”. What on earth? All of those aspects are a fundamental part of somebody’s identity.

  • Khazija

    That is not correct. I am not lying to people. Have you ever worked or have known people who worked with these award shows before? They legally have to at least, process the voting involved. A lot of people have not properly understood the disclaimers involved. There are isolated incidents of rigging that have happened but most award shows are not completely rigged in every single category, and they are not authorized to do that. The networks involved screen the votes using committees and legal teams are involved. The majority of the TCA winners are not informed in advance.
