I captured a few pics from Sunday's Fox airing of the Teen Choice Awards. I personal didn't enjoy the show. I saw people in the stands more than I did the actual stars. The Camera kept moving off the star on the stage to the audience then a pan shot followed by a zoom in on the star and then back out showing the whole stage. I watched this on a 46 inch HDTV and at times it was annoying not to be able to see who was speaking on stage.
The online site for the show had three cameras to choose from; TCA Hosts, Photo wall, and the lounge.
When the show went live the first camera also showed previews of up coming Fox tv shows, the second one showed the back stage where the stars more often than not didn't stop, the third remained the lounge you might see someone walking through.
I don't think the kids were too excited about either the hostess or Will. i. am; with Selena, Taylor Swift and Bieber sitting side by side in the audience they would have rather had one of those open the show. I would have started with the song Selena sung, after all we were told she won like, what 15 awards?
The first presenters- The Vampire Diaries trio, gave Ashton Kutcher his surfboard, wherein he started an sing along to a K Perry fun song. I had high hopes for the show being fun to watch.
To me the whole thing was rushed, -get up there say your thing-get off the stage-next. I was weird to see 'presenters' come up and before giving the award, tell us the other awards they won that they wont bother telling us or even flashing it on the screen.
Don't even get me started on the much teased "Potter Tribute" I've seen better fan tributes on Youtube!
MTV Movie awards is flashy and media savvy, Nickelodeon Kid's Choice is cheesy and goof balled in comparison Teens seem pretty lame.
As I typed this out I noticed a tweet by Dwayne Johnson:
TheRock Congrats to my bud Johnny Depp: Teen Choice Action Actor. Beating me again.
...Johnny Depp got an award?
TheRock Team Bring It: Thank You! FAST FIVE kicks ass and wins Teen Choice Award for Choice Action/Adventure Movie
.....Fast Five won an.. wait.. there was a Action/adventure category?
I think "The Rock" makes my point.
