EatSleepDraw at the 5th Annual Shorty Awards

Good luck to Lee and all of the other nominees at this year’s Shorty Awards. As a former nominee, I have a few friends in the mix this year, and I hope, whoever wins in the Tumblr of the Year category, their hand gets sore from giving out so many high-fives. — Ernie @ SFB

This mindset is exactly why creative shows of color don’t get to exist on television anymore. There’s an overbearing sense of entitlement that refuses to allow shows of color to thrive. How dare we even try?
People on the Internet Can Be Hella Racist Congrats to Issa Rae and the crew of Awkward Black Girl for their Shorty Award win in the category of “Best Web Show”! (Having given out quite a few awards in my day, I know exactly the kind of racism she’s talking about in her piece.)

Oh man, that’s awful that Issa went through that. As someone who was at the Shorty Awards Monday night, I can ensure you that she got nothing but praise inside the venue. (Also, her acceptance clip was funny.)

First off: Congrats to the creators of the “We Are the 99 Percent" Tumblr, who won a Shorty Award tonight for Microblog of the Year on Tumblr. (As I told them, I didn’t even write an acceptance speech because I knew they would win. Still had fun.) I got a chance to meet both of them tonight, and I admit to learning a ton from by just listening. Really cool to hear all that perspective in person. Too many encounters in the media are cut down to a soundbite. It’s nice to take a step back, listen and consider. That’s what I felt like I got to do tonight. It was great. (Also, Jeremy “Missing e” Cutler totally got robbed.) — Ernie @ SFB

missing-e:

Watch the 2012 Shorty Awards tomorrow night (7:30-9pm), live from TheTimesCenter in New York!
Cheer Missing e on as it, hopefully, brings home a Shorty Award, in addition to the Shorty Vox Populi (based on popular vote) you already helped to win!

SFB editor Ernie Smith will be there too in hopes of the site winning a “Microblog of the Year on Tumblr” honor. We totally expect “We Are the 99 Percent" to kick our butt, but that doesn’t mean we won’t totally be freaking out in case we win. Watch tomorrow and cheer us on!

upsidedownspirit says: On the topic of Shorty Nominations, I think it'd be a brilliant idea to encourage people to vote for Missing e in the Apps category. Not only because it's an extremely useful browser plugin, but also because of the aggressive scare tactics Tumblr has taken against Missing e users. If Missing e ends up as a finalist, or better yet wins the category, I think it'd be a really crushing blow to Tumblr's staff.

» SFB says: While not necessarily looking to get “a really crushing blow to Tumblr’s staff” (we disagree on this issue but still greatly love the product), we fully support this idea, and Jeremy has a real shot of winning — he’s currently in first place in the Apps category, ahead of such biggies as Instagram and Twitter. Give him a vote and make sure he wins it all! (And hey, we’re looking for votes, too!) — Ernie @ SFB

You should vote for ImWithKanye for a Shorty Award, just kidding ImWithKanye doesn’t deserve any awards, just kidding. It deserves all the awards. All the awards including the Oscar, just kidding, an Oscar and a Grammy and then, it will go for an EGOT, just kidding. But I’m not kidding. ImWithKanye wants to be like GOOP and pull a Gwyneth, just kidding. Gwyneth Paltrow wants to pull an ImWithKanye, just kidding. I’m ImWithKanye and not even sure what pulling one is, just kidding, it’s like pulling a red wagon down Sesame Street, just kidding, I don’t even know how to get to Sesame Street, no I’m not kidding. I got lost when Big Bird gave me directions – that bitch, just kidding, it was Elmo. He was like hey, giggle, giggle and we laughed and laughed, just kidding. I cried, just kidding. I sobbed, just kidding. The last time I cried was when I watched a Beautiful Mind, just kidding, it was 5 minutes ago when I found out no one nominated me for a Shorty Award, just kidding. I am still crying now – does anyone have a tissue? Just kidding, I don’t use tissues, I use my sleeves, just kidding, I don’t have any sleeves, just kidding, I don’t have any arms. AHHH, I’m a monster!!!!! Just kidding, monsters aren’t real, just kidding, they are real – I slayed one last night, just kidding, it was two nights ago during the full moon. Just kidding, that’s the Brandy album I was listening to, just kidding, no one listens to Brandy, just kidding, I don’t even know who Brandy is. No, I’m not kidding, is she one of the girls from TLC? Just kidding, I know TLC – I am one of the band members, just kidding, I can’t sing, just kidding, I can totally sing. La-la-LA-LA-LA, just kidding, I totally won a Grammy for that performance. Just kidding, it was actually a Shorty Award, just kidding because no one voted for me. Just kidding, I voted for me, just kidding, I didn’t vote for me, I voted for ShortFormBlog, just kidding I voted for -SaturdayNightLive. No, I’m not kidding – just kidding, I kid. But seriously though, vote for ShortFormBlog or I will lock myself in the bathroom, just kidding, I’m already in the bathroom. Just kidding, I don’t poop. I’m kidding, just kidding. Vote for ShortFormBlog and -SaturdayNightLive too. [image]

Wow. That was quite the appeal.
