2014 CMA Tickets–12 Dozen of One and Six of the Other

CMA Country Music Awards

CMA Country Music Awards

Wow! What a year this has been for Miranda Lambert. The reigning Female Vocalist of the Year garnered nine, count ‘em, nine nominations spread across seven categories for the 48th annual Country Music Association (CMA) Awards. The CMAs, which are also known as Country Music’s Biggest Night, are going to be held live on November 5 in the city that sings itself to sleep every night, beautiful, popular Nashville, which recently became a TV star in its own right. As if that many nominations wouldn’t bring any household tremendous joy, her husband, Blake Shelton, who’s a big-time country star his own self, is also currently the Male Vocalist of the Year, and he’s up for three awards at this year’s CMAs. This year’s accolades are the largest embarrassment of riches for Lambert since 2010.

 

To further beautifully complicate things, Lambert and her husband are going to be squaring off for the coveted 2014 Entertainer of the Year award. That’s sure to be worth bragging rights while the happily married couple is folding laundry as they watch “Nashville” on TV. Plus, they’re both going to be performing at the show, along with fellow multiple nominee Keith Urban, who is nominated in four categories this year, including that crowded Entertainer of the Year category. The only thing that those three have to worry about would be if someone like Luke Bryan or George Strait, the undisputed King of Country music was also nominated for EOY–which they both are! Yikes! How are the voters going to pick just one of them? That’s like having to choose between being rich and being wealthy. And Bryan’s going to perform that night too. Great googly moogly!

How to Tell the Difference between an Award Show and a Real Award Show

Award Show

Award Show

As defined by the holy fount of information, Wikipedia, an award show is a ceremonial event where an award of any kind is given to a person. Now, that doesn’t mean that every award show is created equal. Like watches and cars, clothes and people, they come in all shapes and sizes, and some are simply better than others. You can’t just roll out a red carpet and say that it’s the area’s premier event. Well, it might be, depending on where you live. In case you were wondering, here’s a refresher outlining differences between award shows and real Hollywood-style award shows that you will only see in L.A.

 

Top 10 Signs an Award Show isn’t The Real Deal

10. The entertainer of the year nominees sound like landscapers-because they are.
9. The event is on the calendar next to “Nominate your neighbor for yard of the month.”
8. It’s happening at the theater where your niece saw VeggieTales “Beauty and the Beet.”
7. There’s an under-16 talent show category.
6. You know the host from elementary school.
5. Tractor Mart, Carlson’s Feed and The Pricey Country Store will be handing out swag.
4. The carpet is only spray painted red.
3. The musical guest played at your grandmother’s nursing home.
2. Tickets are only $15. Seniors get in free.
1. And finally, it’s not a real award show if it’s in Oklahoma!

Don’t Be Tardy – Get Your American Music Awards Tickets!

American Music Awards

American Music Awards

It’s 2014, and there’s a brave new American Music Awards waiting for you and your friends to enjoy. The show will be coming our way on November 23, 2014. Now, we all have something to look forward to besides Thanksgiving turkey. Everyone will be grateful that pumpkin pie and plump waistlines come after the first major music award show of the season.

 

So why are the American Music Awards more exciting than stuffing and cranberry sauce? The answer is pretty obvious. If you get your American Music Awards tickets, you’ll be surrounded by a crowd of celebrities instead of your relatives and a pile of soon-to-be leftovers. Comparing the AMAs and Thanksgiving is really pointless. What Thanksgiving dinner is accompanied by performances from every musical artist that you can think of?

The Toronto International Film Festival Gambling on New Premieres Policy

Toronto International Film Festival

Toronto International Film Festival

Tickets to the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) are always hard to come by, and this year will be no exception. TIFF announced most of the line-up recently, including world premieres by many of the entertainment world’s elite, such as Chris Rock, Noah Baumbach, Chris Evans and Jason Reitman.

 

The films that have been announced will be screened during the first four days of the festival, from Thursday to Sunday, September 4th through the 7th. Media attention is most intense at the Toronto International Film Festival during that period, and films scheduled for release in the upcoming award season can succeed or fail due to word of mouth, and, of course, the critics.

 

Notably absent from the list are two of this year’s most eagerly anticipated films by Brad Pitt and his stable mate Angelina Jolie. Both are period pieces set in World War II. Pitt’s film is called “Fury.” Jolie’s is named “Unbroken.”

Who needs a girls day out when you can have a whole week? That’s our philosophy, and it just makes plain, er, fashionable sense! After all, NYC Fashion Week is a whirlwind experience that rages on and on and on, starting on September 4, 2014, with the final shows closing on the 11th.

This year, you can expect to see Hilfiger, BCBG, Calvin Klein, Tory Burch and all the names we love as well as some new labels that fellow fashionistas are just getting acquainted with. These are names like Katya Leonovich, an award-winning Russian/European designer who made her fashion week debut in 2011, Australian sensations Sass & Bide, the Bahrainian duo Noon by Noor and Katya Zol, a talented Mongolian designer whose exotic, tribal looks crafted from luxurious materials were first showcased at last year’s event.

Anywho, the VMAs aren’t just returning to their SoCal home, they are happening in the storied, steeped in music, saturated in stardom halls of the historic, yet newly renovated, Forum in lovely Inglewood, CA. Wherever that is. Just kidding. If you’re not sure, the GPS definitely knows how to get there, and you can’t miss the long line of stars that will be floating over the red carpet and streaming in the front door on August 24, 2014. This is the only super Sunday we’ve heard of. The nominees are awesome, and the performers already include first-time nominee 5 Seconds of Summer. That’s 5SOS to you. Plus, the ultra-platinum, king of abs Usher will be hitting the stage as will the fabulous, chart-topping Ariana Grande.

Teens, tweens and trendsetters are unleashed at the annual Teen Choice Awards, the official home of summer and the only award show with surfboard trophies. It’s the place where teens, the only people who matter, say what’s hot, what’s cool and what’s over-the-top amazing in music, movies, TV and more.

On August 10th, a very special Sunday, your dreams will be answered. Your wish list will come alive-but only if your parents think that buying 2014 Teen Choice Awards Tickets is the best idea ever. It may still take some convincing. Alternatively, if you have the best-paying summer job in Hollywood, then you can be sure it will happen.

 

The nominees for the 2014 Teen Choice Awards are too hot to handle. Laugh-out-loud funny, as in “22 Jump Street,” rules the list of contenders with seven nominations. Everyone knows she’s super popular, but the nominations confirm that everyone loves Iggy Azalea’s music and her style. The wide world of teens also loves the adorable golf sensation Lucy Li, who could whip her Dad’s butt on the course any day, and every day.
