mediabistrotv_1

Eight-month old news start-up Al Jazeera America took home the Shorty Award honor for best news twitter account at last night’s Shorty Awards in New York City. Adding to the hardware, their deputy news editor, Sarah Jones, won the best social media journalist award (@SarahJReports). Read here for the full awards recap.

And today, in the latest installment of MediabistroTV’s “What’s Your Show?” series, we take you behind the scenes at AJAM’s primetime newscast with TV news veteran John Seigenthaler.

The mission is quite “radical,” Seigenthaler tells TVNewser: to provide unbiased, in-depth journalism for AJAM’s audience.

And The Shorty Awards Go to…

Lost Remote was at the sixth annual Shorty Awards in New York City last night, where some of social media’s best moments and brightest stars were rewarded for their efforts.

For social TV, ABC’s hit show “Scandal,” whose social media prowess we’ve covered extensively, took home the #ShortyAward for best TV show. The show’s cast live-tweets almost every episode, and is one of the more active shows in terms of promotion ahead of episodes.  One of its cast members, Josh Malina, recently spoke with us about the cast’s collective decision to be there for fans on social media.

Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul (@aaronpaul_8) and Parks and Recreation’s Retta (@unfoRETTAble) took home best actor and best actress Shorty’s.

Our story featuring @SeinfeldToday’s fake twitter account must have given it a bump—it won best fake twitter account.  Speaking of Seinfeld, Jerry Seinfeld won the award for best Web Show for his original web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Amy Poehler‘s “Smart Girls At The Party” Tumblr won best Tumblr of the year.

For best integration of social media for live TV, there was a tie between NBC’s “The Voice” and MTV’s 2014 Movie Awards.

In a funny moment, actor Will Ferrell was awarded the Lifetime Achievement award for social media.

“Of all the irrelevant awards out there, meaningless awards, awards that no one has heard of…the Shorty’s are by far the most prestigious,” Ferrell said in a taped acceptance speech.

Among award shows, Premio Lo Nuestro sees most engaged Twitter audience

premio.aiTwo weeks ago, we wrote about three social activations driving the Premio Lo Nuestro Latin  Music Awards. While the show did not drive as much social volume as Sunday night’s Oscars (Two words: Ellen selfie), according to Nielsen SocialGuide Premio Lo Nuestro saw a more engaged Twitter audience (4.9 tweets per unique) than the People’s Choice Awards (4.1), Oscars (4.0), and Golden Globe Awards (3.3).

More isn’t always better, then.

Noche de Estrellas, the red carpet show that preceded Premio Lo Nuestro, faired even better against its competition, drivng 5.7 tweets per unique. This is compared to sub-two tweets per unique numbers for each of the three main Oscar red carpet shows.

“We listen to and engage our audiences on the platforms they want to be on whether Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat or Twitter,” David Beck, senior vice president and general manager, Social Media, Univision told Lost Remote. “We offer them amazing opportunities to connect directly with their favorite artists–like asking them questions on the red carpet via Instagram video.” Read more

Spacey OscarsAs we’ve reported, Netflix’s hit show “House of Cards” does not rest on its laurels while the show is off—which it uniquely never is as compared to traditional TV shows.

And show star Kevin Spacey brought out his alter-ego out Frank Underwood during his presentation at the Oscars last night.

“And I sing because it’s so nice to be out of Washington and here with all my Hollywood friends,” Spacey started his Oscars introduction with in his best southern accent to a rousing applause.
