Misogynystic slugs.

The 2017 American Music Awards really screwed up: artists nominated this year in many of their major categories seem to completely miss the mark. Everyone nominated for Artist of the Year is a man, as well as every nominee for Tour of the Year, Video of the Year, and four of the five nominees for New Artist of the Year.

It's a cis, male, largely white group of people we're seeing nominated for AMAs this year, which nominee Halsey took notice of and critiqued on Twitter:

To give a picture of a better world, we've decided to create our own nominees for Artist, New Artist, and Video of the Year:
