Young Hollywood Awards

The Young Hollywood Awards. I used to kinda like 'em. But now? They're a joke right? An award show has no credibility to me if they change the categories every year. It's like they pick people they want to give an award to and then make up an category. It actually pains me to say this, because I LOVE Young Hollywood. But these awards make no sense.

Take a look at the categories in 2008 and 2009. I took these from the official site. I would list the previous years as well, but the official site doesn't even have them up. Huh?

Standout Performance Male (Jonathan Tucker)
Standout Performance Female (Emmanuelle Chriqui)
Exciting New Face Female (Emma Stone)
Exciting New Face Male (Alex Frost)
One to Watch Male (Thomas Dekker, Brady Corbet)
One to Watch Female (Summer Bishil, Brittany Robertson)
Breakthrough Performance Male (Michael Angarano)
Breakthrough Performance Female (Amber Heard)
Breakthrough TV Performance (Vincent Kartheiser)
Hottest Coolest Young Veteran (Abigail Breslin)
Young Hollywood Role Model (Donald Sutherland)
Exciting New Vocalist (Taylor Swift)
Exciting Music Crossover (Jesse McCartney)
Hottest New Film Maker (Matt Reeves)
Hottest New Scene Stealer (Adam G. Sevani)
Hottest New Picasso (Kat von D.)
Newest Red Carpet Correspondent (Lilly Collins)
Crest Whitestrips Onscreen Smile(!?) (Brittany Snow)

YH Superstar of Tomorrow (Annalynne McCord)
YH Action Star Female (Jamie Chung)
YH Action Star Male (Columbus Short)
YH Crossover (Bar Refaeli)
YH Superstar (Evan Rachel Wood)
YH Breakthrough Male (Ed Westwick)
YH Breakthrough Female (Rumer Willis)
YH Artist of the Year (Adam Lambert)
YH Green (Q'Orianka Kilcher)
YH Director (Catherine Hardwicke)
YH Athlete (Shawn Johnson)
YH Comedienne (Ari Graynor)

What happened to the exciting new faces?! The ones to watch?! The standout performances?! And where the hell did the YH Green award come from? How come last year we had Exciting New Vocalist and this year we have Artist of the Year? I'm so confused! And the same goes for the MTV Movie Awards with their ever changing categories. Boy, has that show lost its magic.

Adding categories? Sure, okay. But not too many in one year. And don't change all the existing ones. My tip to you award show people. You're welcome.
