Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Deserved MTV's Reality Royalty Award

Final night time’s MTV Film & TV Awards justly celebrated the collection and movies that we could not cease watching and speaking about over the previous yr. It is all the time good to honor the stuff that does not get acknowledged on the established awards exhibits however that also make a huge effect on the tradition. For instance, all these Fowl Field memes actually paid off for Sandra Bullock, who gained Most Frightened Efficiency. Plus, extra enjoyable was there available because the community doubled down on teasers for its upcoming reboot of The Hills. And Lizzo, probably the most in-demand pop stars of the second, labored everybody right into a frenzy.


Every part went off and not using a hitch till it was time handy out the award for Actuality Royalty, given to that yr’s greatest actuality present. Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta was an outlier nominee alongside The Bachelor, The Problem, Jersey Shore: Household Trip, and Vanderpump Guidelines; however, to everybody’s shock, it gained. And it shortly turned clear that not everybody was completely happy about it.

Within the viewers, RuPaul’s Drag Race star Alyssa Edwards sat together with her mouth agape when Trixie Mattel and Nick Kroll introduced the winner. Angelina Pivarnick, who seems on Jersey Shore: Household Trip, truly yelled, “What the fuck?!” The remainder of the viewers, particularly the all-white forged members from different exhibits, sat there with stale, pretend smiles and issued unenthusiastic claps. This didn’t go unnoticed: Twitter shortly referred to as out the overall disdain that appeared to be radiating towards LHHATL forged members Lil Scrappy, his spouse Bambie, Karlie Redd, and dancehall artist Spice as they accepted their award.

The racist undertones in many individuals’s reactions have been unmistakable, even when the LHHATL stars did not let it faze them. As Scrappy stated throughout his acceptance speech: “I used to be simply telling them again over there, I feel we too ratchet to win [an] award. However ratchet repay typically, you are feeling me?” This appeared to be an acknowledgment of the present’s standing as so lowbrow that, in the course of the 2016 presidential election cycle, then-President Barack Obama referred to as out Trump’s conduct as being “some Love & Hip Hop stuff.”

Even so, the franchise—created by a Black lady, Mona Scott-Younger—is an accessible entry level for a lot of within the Black group to have conversations about points like LGBTQ acceptance, parenting and fertility, incarceration, diasporic Black tradition, and even politics. It has additionally helped many ladies of shade construct careers in media, regardless of the business’s many obstacles. And the mainstream is beginning to discover, with opinion items within the New York Occasions validating the legitimacy of Black actuality exhibits like LHH within the popular culture area.

Even amongst Black people, racialized ideas of decorum and sophistication typically affect what sort of sort content material we deem acceptable and worthy of accolades. These respectability politics drive an pointless wedge between members of our personal group, whereas additionally inadvertently co-signing anti-Black rhetoric. It is damaging and disrespectful, which is why it felt so gratifying to see LHHATL get some respect placed on its identify—lastly.
