I actually find it a stranger thing that 'This is it' is nominated in Outstanding Motion Picture instead of Outstanding Documentary (Theatrical or Television)

I've been covering the television and entertainment industries professionally for years.

The NAACP is just trying to acknowledge Michael as much as possible by including the televised Memorial Service wherever they can. That's how it works with awards programs: if there's something you really want to nominate and there's no proper category for it, you force it wherever it will fit the best if you can get away with it. Sometimes new award categories are created later to prevent the same problem in the future.

Also, technically speaking in a TV-industry sense, Michael's Memorial Service was an actual and very complex television production, complete with many of the same staff positions and  production requirements you find in televised variety shows and specials.

I'm glad the NAACP and the Image Awards are honoring Michael in this way, along with This Is It. However, it's not really that odd the film isn't in the documentary category.

Switching categories like that happens sometimes when a documentary is very popular or successful. The general public tends to pay less attention to documentaries because regular movies are more mainstream and accessible to most people.

So, categorizing This Is It as a movie will help it get more appropriate attention, so to speak, since it was marketed and perceived more as a traditional movie than a traditional documentary. Putting it in the movie category will also allow the other documentaries to stand out more and not get overshadowed by a more well-known and mainstream feature like This Is It.

Yeah, I'm glad they're doing it this way too!

I realize, it's fruitless to search for clues everywhere, and am convinced that a large part of what we consider oddities/clues are not hoax-related per se and their oddness is a matter of perception. And all we can do is to filter all that suff from an objective perspective. But the problem is, once you believe in a hoax and are not aware of how and why it was ACTUALLY done, it's very hard to be objective! =(

I also find this disrespectful.

I live in the UK.. could you imagine Princess Dianas televised funeral being up for an award at a television awards show?  Ridiculous.

Only in La La Land.

But why it never has been done before Michael...? This is really strange and I do not like it, if Michael is really dead, then it is not right (to my humble feelings  :( ).

Why MJ's Memorial is the question? This is the first time in history that something like this has ever happened. MJ was directing this all along and behind the scene since Jun 25th. I wonder what other oddities will happen this year in this new decade? I will floored if the Memorial actually wins. Keep the Faith!
