Of Awards and Prestige

The 2010 MTV Movie Awards last June 6 signaled the start of the different big awarding ceremonies in the entertainment industry. More trophies are prepared, and more nominees become winners. Whether we’re talking music, fragrance, fashion, or musicals, the nominated stars got their outfits ready for their walks on the red carpet. So, the big controversial question is: who made it to awards history?

Who's getting an A++ in a category?

Last June 9, we celebrated the glory of country music with the 2010 CMT Music Awards held at Nashville (Bridgestone Arena). And this time, it looks like the Grammy’s favorite won’t have the opportunity to drop a shiny statuette because Taylor Swift didn’t even bag a single win!

None to drop this time, Tay

So, to whom do we give our congratulations to?

Ladies and gentlemen, the winners of the 2010 CMT Music Awards.

Who are bringing CMT trophies home this year?

Carrie Underwood – Video of the Year (for “Cowboy Cassanova”)

Keith Urban – Male Video of the Year (for “Til Summer Comes Around”)

Miranda Lambert – Female Video of the Year (for “White Liar”)

Lady Antebellum – Group Video of the Year (for “Need You Now”)

Brooks and Dunn – Duo Video of the Year (for “Indian Summer”)

Blake Shelton and Trace Adkins – Collaborative Video of the Year (for “Hillbilly Bone”)

Shaun Silva – Director of the Year (for “Indian Summer”, “Out Last Night”, “Rain is a Good Thing”, “Here Comes Goodbye”, “Summer Nights”, “Living for the Night”, “Nightswimming/Joey”, “Keep You”, “I’m Alive”, and “Do I”)

Music wasn’t the only thing being given tribute to this June. The fragrance industry had its spotlight the day after the CMT Music Awards were presented with its very own FiFi Awards, the counterpart of Oscars in perfumes, which is awarded by the Fragrance Foundation. So, which scents caught the judges’ noses this year?

The FiFi trophy

These lovely scents may blow your sense of smell away, but this year’s month of June gives you more reason to be entirely blown away through the 2010 CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Awards. Sponsored for the ninth time by Swarovski, the event that gave tribute to legendary fashion designers around the world took place at the Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center last June 8.

It's time to see which designer is most impressive

Aside from Marc Jacobs who brought home the top prize, the Womenswear Designer of the Year (presented by Jessica Biel), the following also amazed us with their fashion designing skills.

Congratulations Marc Jacobs!
