Looks like the entertainment industry is going to the masses or going to the dogs, depending on how you look at it. First it was reality TV show with SMS voting, then it’s polling for the best video clips in YouTube. This has been compared to an Oscar or MTV awards competition.

You Tube 2006 Video Awards

YouTube is the latest and hottest video clips on the web published by Internet users and accessible for free downloading by Web surfers. The popularity of YouTube is proven by the fact that Google Inc acquired YouTube for US$1.65 billion in 2006. In total disregard for artistic value, YouTube members are now encouraged to browse through videos in seven genres at YouTube-YTAwards and rank their favourite video clips. Categories include most creative, most inspirational, comedy and commentary. Where else but the Internet to get feedback on what people like to browse and view? This will also encourage more amateur talent to publish more video clips. Will an Oscar-winning producer actually emerge from this arena? Well, nothing is impossible in the World Wide Web.
