Taffy Award: TV farce for their

November 17 2005

November 18 will be another award ceremony Taffy in major categories for achievements in television. However, long gone are the days when it was an event for both nominees, and for ordinary people. Now it's more like a farce.

In the last three months theme Taffy-2005 exaggerated in the media has consistently: make predictions, discuss the most deserving person, make assumptions. Nominees are proud to acknowledge the validity of the decision, those who are not lucky, the jury accused of bias.

Suddenly, the press descended on Vladimir Pozner - Chairman of the Russian Academy of Television (which determines the winner) because he is in his interviews, allowed himself to name the obvious favorites in the struggle for Taffy. Many felt that the jury might take his words for a guide to action. Say, once chairman of the jury considers worthy of the name of, then so be it.

In fact, choose a particular academic not anything else. From year to year nominated the same transmission (Primarily the First Channel and RTR) - "Vesti", "Time," "Wait for me, flashed the same person Maksim Galkin, Andrei Malakhov, Sergei shaving. At each figurine three contenders, who in turn and give Taffy every three years to not to offend anyone. To no one quarreling academics exhibit a truly diplomatic skills. With extended this year and the first channel and "RTR" Christmas "lights" they just did - "Spark" TV Channel "Russia" exposed the jury to award best director, and "Spark" First - for Best Cinematography.

This year, in order to dispel any speculation about the predetermination of the Academy decided that voting will be open and will take place directly during the ceremony. The computer identified 12 academics who might be called the winner in a particular category in front of the amazed public.

True, in 2003, summed up the computer academics. The result was unpleasant. In several nominations announced the wrong winner, had to apologize for a long time, select figurines and hand them who should be.

In the Taffy-2005 nonsense, too lacking in the list of contenders for the Taffy for the best music program neighbor "Star Academy 5" and "Starship album, Yuri Bashmet: Dzhansug Kakhidze" from "Singing Dream". Another two programs nominated for TV award, has generally not present in the air - they are closed. This is a joke "and" Basic Instinct ".

But the TV people themselves are in no way embarrassing. For them it is a holiday. Teledivy still put on a ceremony specially purchased for the occasion dresses, winners habitually covers his face with his hands, when they learn that a cherished statue will get them. Standing on stage, with aspiration to thank everyone for the recognition of their work, they say thank you to my team, my parents, and most importantly the viewers who actually have to do with this award all the more distantly related.
