    People: Miranda Lambert Cries, Says Her Pick to Win Was Carrie Underwood

    Miranda Lambert Is the Big ACM Winner : People.com

    "I mean – I really, truly was rooting for Carrie [Underwood]. She really, truly is an inspiration to me as a vocalist, and I love her and I really wanted her to win tonight."

    Continuing her praise of Underwood, Lambert said, "She did win some Grammys, so hopefully that made up for it, but she is just so good. She can sing any one of us under the table. Anytime I see her perform, it's like, 'She needs to be the female vocalist!' "

    Really happy Miranda said that. Doesn't change the snub, but it eases the sting just a bit.

    It would be nice if the industry acknowledged it too! Has Carrie done something to piss these people off? I just don't understand the cold shoulder treatment she is getting from them with regards to nominations and awards.

    Totally agree with Miranda I don't know why they are not letting Carrie win any more. It's like "ehhh Carrie Underwood already won this award like a few times lets have someone else win."

    I hate the "lets let someone else win" argument in the first place.
    But then when it is used on someone who has already won 3 times in a row, it just sound rediculous.

    Carrie has the won the award as many times....

    And the industry voters always switch it up every few years. Doesn't make it right, but it's just the way it goes.

    Nope. Miranda has won it more.. Because she's obviously so much more successful than Carrie...

    You know you've messed up when the winner disagrees...

    That was definitely nice of Miranda to say.

    I think it is funny that any of you believe a word she says. She is trying to look humble but her husband, his label, her label and the clique of voters are a major reason why she won. Thats like buying 1000 out of 1050 tickets and being surprised that you won. Y'all can take it at face value but me? Nope - these 2 are a bought-and-sold-out couple who knows EXACTLY what they and their cohorts are doing.

    I am not sure I understand your post but let me clarify:

    Carrie has "not" won it as many times.
    And when Carrie as winning, the general concesus was always "let someone else win". As if "the best" should not be a consideration.

    Now Miranda has won it 4 times. And I sure don't hear any arguments anymore about how many times is it "fair" to win.

    It should never have been an arument that Carrie was "winning too much".
    But all of a sudden there is no argument at all when Miranda is winning more.

    "switching it up every few years" already pasted last year!

    I don't find that it eases the snub at all, it's just one thing that Miranda and I happen to agree on. :P

    My mistake; I thought Carrie had won the award as many times as Miranda.

    Yeah, I agree Carrie is the best of the best vocally, BUT that's never been the case with these awards shows, obviously. Believe it or not, some people did get tired of Carrie winning endlessly before Miranda came along as well; some people even said she was winning too many awards too early.

    How is it possible Carrie can't win too much, but Miranda can? Whether you want to admit it or not, you're willing to say it's acceptable for Carrie to win, but nobody else.

    I love Carrie as much as all of you, but some of the hypocrisy here is sort of astounding.

    I think it's perfectly fine for Carrie to win every single year if she's having the bigger year every single year... which is like every year.

    Truthfully, I don't like seeing the same people win every year. Yeah, Carrie deserved it this year, but if somebody is having a better year than her (which will probably happen eventually), they should deserve to win.

    If Carrie has the best year, she should win, but I feel like some people are saying she should win every year just because she's Carrie. .

    Turning in my stan card for the moment...
