what EW says; what EW means

"Teen Wolf “Sterek” fans, we’ve read your (hundreds and hundreds of) comments and admire your passion. The reason Sterek didn’t make the category is because it’s not an acknowledged will-they-or-won’t-they storyline on the show itself. The pairings we included in that category all share a scripted, long-established dynamic on their show. We’re sorry if you feel your truly impressive mobilization for nominating the duo was in vain. We will acknowledge your passion with a special award when the winners are announced Monday.

And to clarify: The reader nominations are viewed as suggestions. Votes aren’t counted until the polls open.”

what EW says what EW means
we’ve read your (hundreds and hundreds of) comments and admire your passion By adding these parenthesis we come off slightly condescending. We wish you didn’t care so much about entertainment. WE ARE THE GATEKEEPERS.
it’s not an acknowledged will-they-or-won’t-they storyline on the show itself We couldn’t be bothered to do our research to understand 1) that “shipping” has nothing to do with creator/showrunner acknowledgement, or 2) that even if it had, Sterek is one pairing that you can’t dismiss out-of-hand.
The pairings we included in that category all share a scripted, long-established dynamic on their show. We haven’t actually watched Teen Wolf, because if we had we would never have written this sentence.
We’re sorry if you feel your truly impressive mobilization for nominating the duo was in vain Please fuck off and die. Alternatively, please stop leaving us comments and tweeting at us. We want our complete incomprehension of fandom to go unnoticed.
We will acknowledge your passion with a special award when the winners are announced Monday. Here! Take this Special Gay Award! Hey, it worked in the Olympics… oh shit, wait…
And to clarify: The reader nominations are viewed as suggestions. Votes aren’t counted until the polls open. Please call us when you have consolidated your own SuperPAC and we’ll talk real business.

Note to news/entertainment outlets: fandom has been doing this a long time. If you wanna play in the sandbox, you better get a feel for the rules first. Number One? Don’t throw sand unless you want it thrown back.
