Yes, awards’ season is upon us — even those of us in the pharma advertising and marketing business. One of the most prestigious awards in that category are the MM&M Awards. The MM&M Award Ceremony will be held on October 29, 2009 and I’m not invited, yet!
I’ve been to this event in the past (see “MM&M Award Winners Announced at Gala NY Event!“) and thought how cool it would be if I were to join the winners on stage and be photographed along with them. Sort of like Woody Allen’s Zelig character who was digitally inserted into historic newsreel footage.
But then I saw the following scene from rapper Kanye West’s interruption of Taylor Swift’s acceptance of her music video award.
The MM&M Award finalists have been chosen (see here) and Beyonce is NOT on the list! Will there be a “Kanye West” moment during the awards ceremony?
I hope that James Chase, Editor-in-Chief at MM&M, invites me back this year. Don’t worry, James, I won’t pull a “Kayner” and tell the audience who should really win an ad award!
