    They’re the Video Music Awards, but with fan voting and big-name acts nominated for most of the awards, it is in many ways mostly a popularity contest. What were some of the best videos that didn’t win?

    Off the top of head I can remeber two videos I love which lost all the categories they were nominated for: George Michael’s “Freedom” (went 5-0) and REM’s “Imitation of Life” (went (3-0)…

    Britney for “Toxic”, “…Baby One More Time”, “Oops..I Did It Again”, “I’m a Slave 4 U”
    It’s strange to think that MTV had such a bias against Britney during the early 2000’s when she literally shaped the VMAs for a new generation. “Toxic” is one of her most iconic videos ever and made a huge impression on audiences.
