Award shows say bye-bye to Disney mouse
Shows what happens when you hire all interns
Meet the 30-ton gorilla - Taylor Swift

Notice how ALL the 2009 Winter awards shows have snubbed Disney stars? Last night the Grammy Award nominations were announced. Jonas Brothers, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Ashley Tisdale, and if you include Bandslam, Aly & AJ and Vanessa Hudgens all ignored. All had products released in 2009 that qualified for vote.

What about the FORMER-reigning pop princess, Miley Cyrus? Surely she got a nomination - yes, she did. The Climb was nominated, drum roll please, for Best Song Written for Motion Picture, Television or other Visual Media.

Disney did score similar nominations for the movie Up, but since that was animated, doesn't impact the tween market.

Disney was snubbed at the American Music Awards, too. Goodbye, Mr. Mouse stars. We'd like you to meet the 30-ton gorilla, we call her Taylor Swift. Swift has managed to sell out in minutes all her 2010 concert tickets, something Cyrus could not accomplish in ANY market in 2009.
