Ceremony information

The awards were originally scheduled to be held at Barclays Center for the first time since 2013. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was expected to be held with “limited or no audience”, as one of the first major indoor events to be held in the city since the onset of the pandemic in the state, with MTV also announcing plans for the show to “[span] all five boroughs” to “pay homage to the strength, spirit and incredible resilience of NYC and its beloved residents”.

MTV eventually scrapped the indoor component of the ceremony at Barclays after “close consultation with state and local health officials” and announced that it would be conducted in an outdoor format across the city; the Center will host the 2021 show instead.[3] New one-off award categories for “Quarantine Performance” and “Best Music Video from Home” were added on July 30 in light of the ongoing pandemic. Three additional categories were announced on August 24: Song of Summer, Best Group and “Everyday Heroes: Frontline Medical Workers”, with the latter created “to celebrate performances by COVID-19 first responders”. The awards will be simulcast live by ViacomCBS half-sister network The CW on August 30, marking the VMA’s first ever broadcast on terrestrial television in the United States.

30th july: Friendship Day

Friendship Day (also International Friendship Day or Friend’s Day) is a day in several countries for celebrating friendship.

It was first proposed in 1958 in Paraguay as the “International Friendship Day”.

It was initially promoted by the greeting cards’ industry, evidence from social networking sites shows a revival of interest in the holiday that may have grown with the spread of the Internet, particularly in India, Bangladesh, and Malaysia. Mobile phones, digital communication and social media have contributed to popularize the custom.

Those who promote the holiday in South Asia attribute the tradition of dedicating a day in the honour of friends to have originated in the United States in 1935 but it actually dates back to 1919. The exchange of Friendship Day gifts like flowers, cards and wrist bands is a popular tradition on this occasion.

Friendship Day celebrations occur on different dates in different countries. The first World Friendship Day was proposed for 30 July in 1958, by the World Friendship Crusade.[4] On 27 April 2011 the General Assembly of the United Nations declared 30 July as official International Friendship Day. However, some countries, like India,celebrate Friendship Day on the first Sunday of August. In Nepal, Friendship day is celebrated on 30 July each year. In Oberlin, Ohio, Friendship Day is celebrated on 9 April each year.

Goodbye April

This could often have been very long for many people, forced not only to suffer the bad weather of the season but also to stay home because of the coronavirus. Finally May begins, which I consider the true month of spring and perhaps a few times even in early summer. But in this month in many countries there is also the (partial) end of the lockdown and some activities can be resumed, such as that of simply walking through the streets of the city, respecting the safety distances.

Today is the 30th birthday of the Simpson

Today the Simpsons make the 30th year of their birth. On December 17th the Simpsons made their US debut in half-hour episodes in prime time on the FOX network. Today in many channels of various nations have been transmitted the first historical episodes of the Simpsons . A cartoon that has marked an era and continues to certainly influence current generations that never tire of new episodes.
The primordial simpsons, those of the 90s, were very rough, although they still had that original idea of ​​reflecting the typical American family..

I began to see the simpsons from when I was a child. In Italy in the early 1990s, the Simpsons were not yet known and known as they were today. Today it is certainly one of the most famous cartoons in the world. I also believe that there are also many adults watching them

Goodbye November [2019]

November is over, and it’s about to begin December. What is the saddest month of the year? Probably for many it is November. Instead December and January are months of holidays and February is a month of preparation for the spring of 21st March.

In November the leaves of the trees are red, the cold becomes more intense and people stuff themselves with coats. In our mind, the idea that the current year is coming to an end comes into our mind.

In the United States in November there is a Thanksgiving Day, which is considered a very important party. Instead in the other western countries there is the party of November 1 (all saints days) which however is considered a sad recurrence because it is used as commemoration of the dead, that happens just the following day.

Although November is for many the excellence month of autumn, many consider it as a month of reconciliation with the nature. The Danish Philosopher Kierekegaard wrote:

“In autumn everything reminds us of twilight, – and yet, it seems to me the most beautiful season: he wanted the sky then, when I will live my twilight, that there must be someone who then loves me as I loved the autumn.”
