Sunday, April 18, 2010: <i>The Academy of Country Music Awards</i>

The Academy of Country Music Awards, one of half a dozen televised awards shows devoted exclusively to country music, airs tonight with Reba returning to host for the 12th damn time. I love country music (and not even really that ashamed of it), but the redundancies in these shows drive me crazy. Country superstars are a tiny, tiny group. Do we need yet another show that showers every single award on Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum and Kenny Chesney? How many times do we need to see that?

But the upsides: Toby Keith isn't nominated for anything, and Billy Currington may take home some awards for "People Are Crazy," easily one of the best country songs of the past few years. But Angel and I ask you, Academy of Country Music, where is Laura Bell Bundy's nomination? Have you not seen her Oscar-worthy saloon whore video for "Giddy On" Up? This is the award show snub of the century.

The Academy of Country Music Awards airs on CBS tonight at 8 PM (hopefully, anyway -- there's golf airing before 60 Minutes, and you know how that goes, Amazing Race fans), opposite all the ordinary non-CBS Sunday stuff and the second installment of Treme on HBO, in case you missed that it started.
