Why do you think the Teen Choice Awards praised Britney while the VMAs continuously snubbed her?

Do you think the Teen Choice Awards were more respectful of Britney considering she opened for their first show ever and therefore payed homage and respect throughout her career while the VMAs paid her dust? Or is there another reason? 
 

This will forever be my favorite Britney performance ever and I can’t wait for it to be remastered.

Anyway, it was a time when the only appreciated pop acts were those of the 1980s (Madonna...Michael Jackson...Prince) and critics were definitely not going to be caught drop dead praising a teen-pop album, let alone the Grammy Committee.

You can say that Xtina won a Grammy despite being a teen-pop act during her debut years but she had her miraculous and acclaimed vocals by her side. That gave her an upper hand in comparison to Britney who was then seen as a puppet...Though ironically, she herself spawned puppets. 

NSYNC* and BSB still don't have a single Grammy, I think. So that also speaks for my opinion.

The VMA’s were so far up Nsync and BSB’s ***e$ back in the day, that’s why MTV always snubbed her.  She was nominated amongst them a LOT and MTV had to pay fan service to all the little teeny boppers who just HAD to see their fav boyband member on stage :yasqueen_yes_wow_crying_praise_tears_wipe_sad:

the boy bands didn’t age well…meanwhile  Britney’s relevance in the world is still humongous.

Well, the fact that she opened the TCA will always have more weight, but even if she didn't, I think it's also because of the target audience.

In the end, even if Britney's music was also enjoyed by adults, I guess she was mostly considered an artist for teens and kids in the beginning of her career, that plus the fact that she was a pop artist, probably added to why she was never taken seriously (even if they still let her perform), part of the whole "rock is better than pop" retrograde mentality that a lot of people have. 

I still see the 2011 Video Vanguard Award as some sort of retroactive recognition to her work, because if we went by number of awards, there really wasn't a reason for her to receive that award, especially before other overrated people that got many more moonmen than her, and considering she was basically the first one of her generation to get one. I mean, she totally deserved it, what I mean is that considering she had only won a few awards for POM and Womanizer, it was kind of shocking that they would do this.

I think the Vanguard award was collateral damage for the continuous snubs. She did deserve it, but the fact it was so lackluster just adds to the insult

This performance. :yasqueen_yes_wow_crying_praise_tears_wipe_sad: I often find myself randomly going back to it. The live vocals. The dancing. The dance breaks. The band. The audience reaction. The “omg” at the end. :yasqueen_yes_wow_crying_praise_tears_wipe_sad: Looking back now it feels like a perfect introduction to what Britney was all about. I can’t imagine anyone watching this and questioning her talent.

Britney should really be the most awarded artist at the vmas it is actually tragic. Toxic was very obviously snubbed in 04, im sure if she made an in person appearance she’d win all of the nominations. The thing is tho, even if Britney’s videos and songs aged to iconic status, the videos she lost to had songs behind them that were bigger hits than Britney’s back then, like get this party stared was a bigger hit in 01 than slave.

A lot of Britney's VMA losses weren't to boy bands though she lost to Aaliyah, J.Lo, Pink, Beyonce, No Doubt and others a lot of the time.

The VMAs used to be prestigious 30 20 years ago so Britney was never taken seriously before team con made arrangements for the VMAS 2008 and on.
