I was thrilled when I was asked to live blog all the big shows this award season for Policymic. Two down and two to go, I am excited for the Grammy’s on February 10th, and the Oscars, airing February 24th. I invite you to join me online on Policymic and make your own commentary that will run alongside my blog, or in the comments section if you prefer. It’s a fun way to have a conversation while watching the shows. I READ EVERYTHING and am the ONLY person responding, just so you know!
Policymic, if you weren’t already aware, is a non-partisan “platform for the next generation.” That is, young people from about 18-25 years old. This doesn’t mean that older people don’t read the site, or that it’s all meme’s and tweets and bullshit. Far from it, actually. The creators of the site simply wanted to prove a point: that young people are very active in the political and cultural conversation, and that the best way to talk about what matters is to democratize the news.
Not everything I blog about is deep, mind you, or focused on “millennials” per se. That would be not only boring but pandering. The live blogs on the People’s Choice and the Golden Globes were full of photos and jokes and some insider information, all of which you can still read and “mic” if you like, through the links above.
As a part of my live blog, I was asked to write a short article about those that were “snubbed” buy the HFPA. Policymic decided to turn it into an article! You can read it here: Biggest Golden Globes Snubs 2013.
