New TV show of the year: ‘13 Reasons Why’ or ‘Riverdale’?

Young adults had no shortage of new shows to watch in 2017. While "13 Reasons Why" is a controversial series, fans argue the show doesn't actually romanticize suicide.

Animated movie of the year: 'Coco' or 'The LEGO Batman Movie'?

"Coco" and "The LEGO Batman Movie" garnered both rave reviews and commercial success in 2017. "The LEGO Batman Movie" is a laugh-out-loud animated satire, which had mega blockbuster success globally.

Who's the better rapper: Big Boi or André 3000?

OutKast is one of the greatest and most singular hip-hop acts ever, so of course their recent beef is unlike anyone else's. It began when André 3000 told GQ he didn't think he was a great rapper: "Big Boi can rap better than me—I always said that.” Big Boi responded appreciatively to his partner's accolades, but insists Dré's talent is on his level. Big Boi said, “We’re equally matched. Nobody can…

Emcee of the year: Kendrick Lamar or Cardi B?

Should we stop watching Woody Allen movies?

Woody Allen's new movie reportedly depicts the sexual escapades of a 44-year-old man with much younger women. Allen has made some eyebrow-raising comments on the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal, and he's also had his own sexual abuse accusations in his past. Some argue his films must be boycotted (or that they sucked anyway). Others defend Allen, or say you can't mistake the artist for the…

Female pop artist of the year: Rihanna or Taylor Swift?

Female singers were kind of absent from the top 10 of the Hot 100 during the first half of 2017. Rihanna and Taylor Swift changed that. In fact, Rihanna's success from "Anti" carried over into 2017 with her 30th top 10 hit "Love on the Brain." Not only that, but she scored one of the summer's biggest anthem with "Wild Thoughts." Taylor made her grand return with the #1 hit "Look What You Made Me D…

Pop girl group of the year: Little Mix of Fifth Harmony?

There aren't many thriving girl groups but the world has two quartets slaying the game. U.K.'s Little Mix and America's Fifth Harmony continue to serve up some epic girl power in 2017.

While Camila Cabello went solo in late 2016, Fifth Harmony persevered as a quartet — adding the smash "Down" to th…
