The AMAs were last night and I’m not going to pretend like I watched them, but Kaiser did! You can read her thoughts on the audience and the setup here. There is a feeling of relief around the scaled-back awards for us because we don’t have to stay up past our bedtimes trying to catch every moment. There’s also the issue of awards shows being out of touch with current reality. We want to be entertained, but we don’t want to be reminded of the extreme class divide when it comes to how we’re dealing with the pandemic.

That’s all to say – where are the masks on the red carpet? Wouldn’t it be nice to see some sparkly matching masks? There were masks in the scaled-back audience and on some of the backup dancers at least. Yes we’re getting vaccines and hopefully soon but in the mean time the most privileged of the population can show solidarity and awareness by wearing masks. Also celebrities set fashion trends. The US could stem this virus so much if masks were are popular here as in Asian countries particularly. Let’s make them normalized and common.

Host Taraji P. Henson was one of the many women in metallic. She had on a Armani Prive sack dress. That turban is awesome and I would like to see turbans and head wraps on the red carpet too. Those shield things don’t work well, just FYI. A segment from Taraji’s presentation is below and Just Jared has some gifs of her twerking to open the show.

Presenter Cara Delevingne was in an incredible metallic Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo suit paired with a skintone bustier. How can I get my hair to look like that?

Bebe Rexha had on a sequin Julien Macdonald cutout dress. I’m not digging her hair but I like all these sparkly holiday-type looks.

Doja Cat was in a puffy brown gathered gown by Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood. This is just ok. Doja won new artist of the year last night. She performed with Bebe and you can see gifs from their performance here.

Becky G won Favorite Female Artist – Latin and she dedicated her award to immigrants, which was nice. She was in Ralph and Russo and I feel like we’ve seen this dress several times before.

Laverne Cox is giving me Jane Fonda in Barbarella vibes in this copper Michael Costello half dress! It must be her hair.

Paris Hilton was in a very short sequin Valdrin Sahiti. Paris has been consistent with her fashion for years, I’ll say that. Paris posted a video of her posing on stairs in this outfit. She stumbled for a moment, which was cute actually.
