British GQ 2014 Awards and Alternative ones too

British GQ 2014 Awards

gq dan stevens

On Tuesday last week British GQ hosted their Awards of the year bash. Meaning Gentleman’s Quarterly, GQ’s awards cast a doubtful shadow over the legitimacy of accuracy and rightful winners, instead plagued with favourites and ‘hot right now’ winners.

Whilst talented some winners such as Peter Capaldi as TV Personality after just One episode of Doctor Who as the new Doctor aired do not show off GQ as a credible entity to look towards, something it usually prides itself on as a brand. We like Peter, but come on, he only had one episode last week.

Cumberbatch accepts award though still deserved and funny too.

So below, we shall list the Alternative awards with a list of who SHOULD have won and who COULD win also. The SHOULD have won is clear enough. The second, will be who COULD feasibly win for GQ’s reputation to gain interest and be somewhat deserving of the gong over a joint or compromisable decision, keeping the tone of its brand in tact.

Those in bold are the one’s we would have chosen this year. It’s not personal, but these aren’t the ‘give them an award because I like them awards’.

It wont be long before Nicole, Cheryl, Louis Smith and the like of luvvie duvvies get their gongs at this rate.

One thing you can be sure of, every fashion company will now undoubtedly endorse many of the names printed above. Clearly they can’t think who is deserving and need to pilfer from here. That’s because they are mindless at how to run the show. GQ UK Mag, Esquire and the like can hire me for job roles. Hell, even I would be better as GQ Editor in Chief. Make it happen GQ, I will boost your sales, instead of declining them and your reputation you sought so hard to achieve as a credible focal point, along stars of the mag.

The awards had some questionable winners including Tony Blair and Kim Kardashian.

Richard Dodgson – who organised the GQ Men of the Year Awards – said controversy is no bad thing.

“We like to have celebrities at our event who cause a bit of a stir,” he told BBC Radio 5 Live. “So having Tony was fantastic. We like to have people who have opinions and are forthright.”

Clearly trying to make a name for themselves to gather attention, this has been done in the wrong way and Dodgson clearly sees to lack the nature of grasping media in a correct context to establish brand identity. Instead it made laughable fools of them instead.
