Calendar Letters : Atrocity Awards

February 07, 1987

Of all of the atrocities of the American Music Awards, one particular award really disgusted me ("Houston Wins With Old News" by Dennis Hunt, Jan. 28): Billy Ocean being awarded Favorite Male Video Performer was absolutely ridiculous.

Peter Gabriel, for his ingenious videos that revolutionized the whole video industry, was overlooked, while Ocean, for his bland videos that epitomize the problem with the majority of videos on MTV, was honored.

If these awards are a foreshadowing of what's to come in the Grammys, we're in for real trouble.
