Taylor Swift might as well retire. She’s finally achieved enough clout in the industry to take home the Ultimate Choice surf board at the Teen Choice Awards on August 7, USA Today reports. Swift has won pretty much every other award you can win, so this was about the only one she had left to claim. So, where does it stack up against all those other awards she already has on mantle?
Currently she has: 7 American Music Awards, 6 CMT Awards, 4 Grammy Awards, 1 VMA, 6 CMA Awards, 2 People’s Choice Awards, 2 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards and 11 Billboard Music Awards. And those are just the big-name awards shows. She’s got a smattering of other prizes for smaller feats as well.
Plus, she’s already got 7 Teen Choice Awards and she’s up for 6 this year, in addition to her Ultimate Choice prize. What else is she vying for? Red Carpet Hot Icon – Female, Choice Female Artist, Choice Female Country Artist, Choice Country Song, Choice Love Song and Choice Break-Up Song, all of which are light years more impactful on her career than Grammys or VMAs.
Only three people have won the Ultimate Choice Award previously since the show launched in 1999. Justin Timberlake (2007), Mike Myers (2003) and Britney Spears (2009) are the only other winners of the coveted prize.
So, TayTay forget all the others, you finally got yourself that particularly desirable, rarely-received surf board. Congrats! You did it! We’re so proud of you!
