Blind Item #15

Much like most award shows (not ones that use accountants), just because you are overseas doesn't mean your award shows aren't fixed. The vast majority are and tell the winners in advance so they will show up which delivers higher ratings which puts more money into the executives of the award shows. Some are just more blatant about it than others. So, the former boy bander knew he was going to win which is why he made a point to be at the show.

Harry Styles at the Brit Awards

Gia said...

Totally ‘floppy haired singer’ Harry Styles. Man his solo deal fell flat. He seems like a nice kid and all, but is he a snooze fest.

Don’t think Harry was there

V LP said...

did justin timberlake win anything? I know he performed...

Bia said...

This is Harry Styles at the Brits. He won for video of the year, which is voted on by fans. Apparently a group called Little Mix were the favorites to win, and their fans think the fix was in. BTW, Styles wasn't there, except on video.

Harry Styles wasn’t at the Brit awards. Justin Timberflake was but I don’t think he won anything.

Sunspirit said...

Liam Payne was there but he only performed with Rita Whora but I don’t think he won.

Kno Won Uno said...

Correct.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Harry won, Liam didn’t. Liam was there, Harry wasn’t.

Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson are actually making the best music out of the former One Direction members.

Zayn has talent, but he hasn’t had a solo hit for more than two years.

Doesn't really make sense---if all nominees in say, a given category are A-listers, and they all know the scam, wouldn't the ones not told in advance that they are winners stay home, hurting the show ?


T. W. said...

These awards mean nothing anymore, why do they bother to have them?

Annyoung Bluth said...

Sounds like their fandom sent in this blind and got the facts wrong.

Kno Won Uno said...

Today was a good CDaN day and i’m really grateful.
Thank you all for making this afternoon a little more fun.

Off topic for the Blind but Brendan Fraser just came out with having been sexually assaulted and then blacklisted for having tried to do something about it.

Come on, guys. You can say it, and Hollywood will be better for all of you speaking up, too.

Poor Brendan. He has not been lucky in the life lottery. His ex wife is a piece of work.

Bia said...

Interesting story about Brendan Fraser. The guy he's accusing, Philip Berk, was suspended from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association a few years ago because the members were pissed about a tell-all book he'd written. One of the anecdotes in the book is about Brendan Fraser, but his version is completely different than Fraser's recollection.

@Kno Won Uno - thank you for yesterday. We do not always agree but I respect how you treat us in the comments. You know, some people confirm they are fools when they keep talking.

Brayson87 said...

You remember that last really fun award show? Yeah neither can I.

Danilo müller said...

Not, zayn has been more successful and his songs are better than Louis, in fact he was one of the best vocalists of the band.

Han Niam said...

@Bia I’m not surprised Berk’s “version” looks like that. There’s no way what Fraser described was a mere “pinch” gone wrong.

Unknown said...

At the bigger shows, I'd bet the losers show up for the gift baskets. People who attend the oscars get gift baskets worth more than most people make a year.

Anne said...

They have these awards shows to virtue signal on national television.....which one of the reasons why they,are no longer fun. Show biz is ashamed of being in show biz. Folks have to be mouthing off about some lofty crap as they privately perv. One of Hollywood's biggest problems is there is too little work. Idle hands are the devil's playthings

Jean Grey said...

Harry Styles for sure

I love accountants. They out all the long games/cons. 🖤

Hey All. Discovered this site just a few days ago.

Wow. How does this site get so much info?

With this blind item, it's sad to hear most award shows tell the winners. That's a bummer.

Danielle said...

Error or intended fiction?
Harrry won, Liam attended.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Hey, Bro. Welcome! 🍻

Xpensive Hobutt said...

Who gives a flying fuck?

BluePedal said...

Can we get some blinds on those peculiar creatures from that boy band group that seems to hail from that god awful K-Pop genre. If I see another "We love you NamJoon or whatever the hell your name is" trending on twitter I am going to lose it. Well, lose it more than I already have.

LeahBryar said...

Kim Hyun Joong ss501. Must watch subtitled Playful Kiss and Boys over FLOWERS... He isn't part of the latest crop but adore him.
For good Korean fighting watch Bad Guys from 37:30 to give you a taste.
Love my Korean drama!

Xpensive Hobutt said...

I like Korean food.

Great question. Probably from an agency that runs electronic surveillance. In that case the site is part of a factional power struggle. The fact that a lot of the lightweight stuff appears to be cribbed from other publications only camouflages the participation of the agency.

I do not expect the struggle to be very transparent to the public. I don't expect a Disney-style happy ending where the good guys win. We can be sure that sexual exploitation and trafficking are a pressure point and can be used against a faction, but we should not assume that the attacking faction does not exploit and traffic.

Krispyc said...

Except Harry wasn’t there at all. Justin was and so was Liam Payne. Both performed and neither won.

Plus those awards were fan voted so...

longtimereader said...

Nutty flavor - Best music out of 1D? that's damning with faint praise! despite all the $$$'s spent, it all pretty mediocre.

Bigbro411 said...

Thank you for the welcome, Scandi!

Yes.that is .me said...
