Lady Gaga, Rebecca Black: O nominees
MTV finally created an awards show to support categories like “best music hashtag meme,” “most viral dance” and “favorite f- yeah Tumblr.”
The O Music Awards, announced on Tuesday, will be presented in a live web cast on omusicawards.com come April 28. The digital awards show will honor digital music and the web.
“Your life is online, your music is digital, and that’s worth celebrating,” MTV writes on the awards show’s web site.
Each of the 19 categories – ranging from best fan cover to must follow artist on Twitter – boast a different number of nominees. By logging in to Twitter or Facebook, people are able to vote for one of the nominees listed, or submit a new candidate of their choosing.
Are you planning on voting? You might have to act fast. Each category closes at a different time – some in just 10 days.
Favorite animated GIF - a file comprised of different images that are displayed on repeat - is one category we’ve never seen presented at the Kodak Theatre. The nominees in the web-specific category include Lady Gaga’s “Finger Lickin Good,” Nicki Minaj’s “Gum Twirl,” Rihanna and Katy Perry’s “Catgfight” and 50 Cent, Rebecca Black and Bert’s “Which Seat Can I Take?” - among others.
That’s right - viral sensation Rebecca Black is nominated for an O Music Award.
The “O,” which most commonly refers to “online,” “has been purposely left open to interpretation to generate a reaction and spur conversation,” according to a statement Wired obtained from the network.
Will you tune in to the web on April 28 to watch the first ever O Music Awards?

LOL - I think for the next O Music Awards we might have to have a category for funniest anti- O Music Awards comment thread... @Whisper: Nice Cassie reference. @CuriousCalvin: Gross! @HeadDivaInCharge: If you're really the HDIC, it's your OBLIGATION to make your voice heard. Go check out the site (omusicawards.com), if you don't like it I'll buy you a soda. [NOTE: I am legally required to indicate that I will not actually be buying any of you a soda. But you should still check out the site and vote. KTHX!]
Good to see that all the negative attention Rebecca has been getting has backfired on the hundreds of thousands of cyber-bullies out there. If you share this view please take a moment to join the campaign 'Defend Rebecca Black' on Facebook. Whether you like her music or not, nobody deserves to be bullied!
I think shooting staples into my crotch is more entertaining than this "your life is online" really mtv im happy my life only touches a computer during my third shift at my job which sadly i only have access to everything cnn great!!! other then that i have a life!

I would rather spend an hour scooting across the floor relieving a hemorhoid burning/itching sensation than watch this Nate DoggManure.
Even I do not have time...

Sorry the "O" refers to orgasam, as in "I'm getting my O face on"
Honestly? Not even I have time for this.
