Sunday 23rd April marked the ninth annual Shorty Awards which is a ceremony dedicated to honouring “the best of social media”, both in front of the screen and behind it. To mark the special occasion, a certain Dodie Clark flew to New York City just for the event and ended up stealing the show and picking up her Shorty Award in the funniest way possible…
Dodie’s Snapchat sees the singer songwriter getting seriously buzzed about her upcoming nomination. But when she finally finds out she has won the Shorty Award for “YouTube Musician Of The Year”, Dodie rises from the table like a glorious gazelle… and then falls down to the floor in the goofy way only she could.
You can see Dodie taking a trip on her way to pick up her Shorty Award in the video below:

When she finally reaches the stage, she recites a gorgeous poem before returning to her table with pal and fellow Award winner Thomas Sanders. She shared the news of her success on Twitter by saying that “omg I fell over in front of everyone but I WON OMG THANK YOU THANK YOU [sic]”. There’s truly a reason why Dodie’s taking over the world, and we’re behind her every stumble along the way.
