Okay. Something seems wrong.

MAMA awards are such trash lmao. Winner isn’t nominated for best male group, SNSD isnt nominated for best female group, KARD isnt nominated for best new artist, Taeyang isnt nominate for best male artist and that’s just some of the nominees who should be there. I’m sure the daesang nominations will be trash too. Sigh. it’s a popularity contest and it’ll be boring af this year just like last year.

Take a deep breath and plunge into this anemone garden! 

Michelle Manson’s colorful photograph claims the second place spot in the “Sanctuary Views” category of our Get Into Your Sanctuary photo contest. She photographed this lush area of the kelp forest in Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Congrats to Michelle!

Justice for all the artists and groups that didn’t get nominated for MAMA this year

Where’s WINNER for Best Male Group?

Blackpink for Best Dance Performance Female Group? 

Taeyang for Best Vocal Performance Male or Best Male Artist?

WHERE IS AKDONG MUSICIAN. WHY AREN’T THEY ANYWHERE

Where the heck is Block B because ‘Yesterday’ did so well??!?!

JUSTICE FOR PALETTE FOR BEST COLLAB MAN 

Low key thought that Highlight would get nominated for more categories 

Taeyeon not nominated for Best Vocal Performance Female 

NO SNSD IN BEST FEMALE GROUP MAKES ME SAD TBH

The thing that makes me especially mad is that Online Voting comprises of 30% of the total score making it having equal weight as digital scores and “MAMA Panel” and album sales only being 10%. This essentially makes it so bigger fandoms will have a HUGE advantage over smaller fandoms.

And there are so many other groups that should have been nominated but weren’t

SMH AT MNET AS USUAL. They’re not making their YG x Mnet beef and hatred subtle at all
