Ok Demi finally gets credit were credit is due. Demi is so talented! I don’t think any disney channel show can really show off someones true talent anyway. But I knew Demi could act when I saw her in the Greys Anatomy episode and she did amazing. I haven’t seen nothing like that from selena so far??
Selena can probably act but I haven’t seen anything from her to be like “omg this girl is a great actor”. We haven’t seen a lot from Demi really either but I’m glad Demi won it instead of Selena who wins everything and sometimes I don’t think she deserves it.

As a Mum of three girls, I will only hope I raise my girls right and they do not see people the way of those on here do!
I’m not a fan of Selena Gomez/Justin Beiber. She looked desperate to grow up. I might have viewed her success for her talent if it wasn’t for all the ‘timing’ of the media hype surrounding these two. After all it’s still Hollywood. Demi’s had to fight her own demons and yes singing is certainly her talent. But I think she picked the wrong Jonas brother. But hey that’s life. Demi looks beautiful and elegant in an appropriate gown. You don’t need to show skin to be talent, your talent should speak for itself.

Wow, shocked by these comments. Have any of you even watched Demi on this Disney show? I am sorry to say that I have (my kids usually only have it on Disney, Nick, or Cartoon Network) and she is horrible as an actress. Selena Gomez has much better comedic timing. Agreed that Demi has 100 times better vocals then Selena, but as an actress – not so good. So I agree 100% that this was given mostly because of her present circumstances.

Selena has no range of emotion, by the way. She cannot emote facially, in terms of natural expressions in reaction to given situations, which is one thing, but she cannot emote verbally. Her intonation is absent of the proper emotion for which she is trying to convey. And she is not dynamic in how she occupies space. She is dormant in scenes that her character does not directly control. It’s like she is the same as a singer and as an actor. She’s flat. One inflection. Doesn’t go up. Doesn’t go down. She has a baseline and she never deviates from it. Hence, her character has no “life,” because she does not own the scene in terms of the way she occupies physical space, and her character has no “depth,” because she does convey emotion naturally and fluidly. Trust me. I have a college degree in film and that girl cannot act. Neither can Demi, who, to her credit, has recognized where her true talent lies.

People have to realize that Selena is only popular within a very narrow target demographic. This here is an adult award, not a kiddie award, and Selena isn’t likely to win very many, if any, adult awards. If we are talking Teen Choice, that’s obviously Selena’s wheelhouse. If we are talking out in the real world, amongst mature adults, there is a far greater appriciation for the recent work that Demi and Miley have done. Although neither Demi or Selena were particularly good on their shows. But this was a popularity contest in which more then just tweens voted. And that’s why Selena lost.

Why is everyone so crazy about her? Sure she’s pretty but not drop dead gorgeous, there are girls way prettier than her with more talent but are undiscovered. To me (not a hater not a fan) she will just be known as Justin’s girlfriend and nothing more. She is a decently good actress but is overrated in that too. Other disney actresses are just as good but it’s always credit given to Selena when others deserve it too. I just hate it when people suck up to people with not nearly as much talent as the fame they are gettng coz it’s just sad and unfair. The only thing that makes her insanely famous as she is now is her reputation to date or hang out with the most famous people each time, Nick Jonas, becoming best freinds with Taylor Swift and mentioning her in every interview she does, Taylor Lautner, and now Justin Bieber at the height of his fame. Sure she is portrayed to be the perfect angel but judging by her famewhore reputation she is very manipulative, sweet but manipulative. I was a fan and went to her concert a few months ago but I cringed on the way home. Why? Coz of her weak messed up voice thus I stopped being a fan. I would much rather spend my money to get tickets to a concert of someone with talent rather than someone like Selena who is getting songs in the charts by dating Justin. She knew that her Disney show was ending and so she dated someone really famous so that more people started to know about her so she could be offered more acting roles. I’m sorry but, no infact I’m not sorry coz I have a right to an opinion, but I wouldn’t stay being a fan of someone who dates famous people to get more famous coz that person is just a fake! I’d rather be a fan of someone real and inspiration as Demi Lovato who rightfully deserves more than the fame Selena is getting coz she is obscenely talented, something which Selena very much lacks. Any haters on this are just pathetic Selenators who can’t accept true opinions. If anyone hates on this comment it won’t really matter cos everyones entitled to their own opinion and this is mine.

Agree,but don’t forget,everybody know Selena as ”Justin Biebers girlfirend” not as herself,Selena Gomez. She isn’t that popular,after 1 year,nobody know her name anymore,she will be ”Has-been”,but that isn’t so with Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus,they will be in the showbusiness for years!

absolutely not.demi cant act at all,she only has a goofy and angry/insulted face expressions,thats it.sonny is a primitive role,selena can play a lot better and has a lot more and more complicated facial expressions.as for singing,demi is maybe a bit better.and miley cirus is an average actor,not too good either

Even if you don’t like Demi acting, this was fair. ALMA Awards, Do Something Awards and People’s Choice Awards aren’t rigged, unlike the KCAs and the TCAs (read what appears at the end of ceremony about producers choosing the winners).
Selena was nominated for 3 ALMA Awards, and lost the 3. Obviously, Selena fans didn’t vote enough. If you aren’t happy you should have voted.
PS: Demi looked GORGEOUS at the ALMA Awards. Both this dress and the red one that she wore at her performance are amazing and fit her body perfectly. Can’t wait for the performance. She always owns the stage with that voice of hers!! :)

demi is better at singing. Selena is better at acting. I think she won the award because she actually was able to attend the ceremony to be honest.

i’m a fan of both of them, i love them both but demi is great at singing and selena not so much but demi cant really act and selena is awesome at acting and in her show it shows latina heritage. also sunny with a chance ended unexpectedly, wizards of waverly place followed through for every season it had. so now that demi won it the award looks like it was given to her out of pity. if this was a singing award then yes demi totally should have won no questions asked but it was an acting award so im sorry but demi should not have won that award.
