I think “Cash In Cash Out” by Pharrell Williams, 21 Savage & Tyler, the Creator has a potential to get a Best Art Direction and/or Best Editing nod. That has one of the coolest music videos that I’ve seen in this cycle of music videos this past year. Props to the animation team!June 20, 2022 at 6:23 pm #1204991010
Also Joji, I would vote for him in BNA.
Ehh, he’s too established at this point to be considered for Best New Artist, not to mention all the amazing music videos he’s put out over the past four years that’s been snubbed. (i.e. SLOW DANCING IN THE DARK, Run, Gimme Love, Sanctuary) If anything, I can see a Best Alternative, Best Editing and/or Best Cinematography nomination to most likely be possible for him.May 14, 2022 at 5:01 pm #1204952121
Okay, so after watching it a few times, I think Kendrick is definitely getting a Best Hip-Hop nod for “N95”. Great song and amazing visual.December 26, 2021 at 11:23 am #1204679818

If the short film of All Too Well gets nominated at the VMAs, I would expect for Taylor Swift to get a Best Direction nomination. And well deserved too, may I add.September 30, 2021 at 4:37 pm #1204495175
I think this is the first time that a multi-headliner of that amount has happened since 2004. Honestly I’m hella excited. There’s so many medley options, especially since it seems Dre’s gonna be the centerpiece of the whole show. Like, there’s probably gonna be “Nuthin’ But a G Thang” or “The Next Episode” given Snoop’s there, maybe add a little bit of “Forgot About Dre” with Eminem there. Like, damn, this is gonna be one of the most hyped up halftime shows I’ve ever seen.September 1, 2021 at 9:18 am #1204428420
I think Lil Nas X is either gonna perform INDUSTRY BABY or THAT’S WHAT I WANT. The first choice because it’s the current single out there, and the other choice because even though it’s not been technically released, the song has been used in a lot of his promotional material lately (TikToks, album promo, tracklist reveal).August 26, 2021 at 8:18 am #1204416976
I know that Foo Fighters have been announced to be receiving the Global Icon Award this year – but does anyone know if the Video Vanguard is still happening? Or is the Global Icon Award replacing it?
I believe MTV is basically bringing over the European lifetime achievement award to America for the first time. Honestly, I don’t get it either, but if it means that the European achievements get recognized during the formal presentation of the award, that would be amazing. Bon Jovi, Queen, Whitney Houston, Eminem, Ozzy Osbourne, Duran Duran, Green Day, U2, Janet Jackson and Liam Gallagher all have received this, so if it is indeed a continuation of what Europe did, the Foo Fighters are in some great company right there. Now as for the question of Video Vanguard Award, I know that MTV has given out two lifetime achievements per year in the past, so maybe that will happen? I dunno, but there are still some great artists who are deserving of being recognized for their work in music videos. I think the main problem with that is there being two medleys because MTV wants to have the artists performing some sort of lifetime achievement medley. Two medleys in one award night might be too much.
Well, either that, or MTV can just make their own Music Video Hall of Fame, kinda like how VH1 had an Honors ceremony in the 2000s, and just induct the most influential music videos and artists that contributed/influenced a ton to the genre there. (I’m not saying they should 100% do it, but I think it’s a great idea on paper)August 14, 2021 at 7:26 am #1204396616
Man, there’s so many artists that can be given the MJVVA or the Tricon Awards, or whatever the hell they’re calling it this year. For starters, I can definitely see it going to Jay-Z should MTV keep with the New York theme this year. Alternatively, I can see it going to Eminem; he’s currently the artist with the most wins that has not been received the Vanguard Award. Taylor Swift could also be a great possibility as well. Also, Nicki Minaj as well.
Pretty sure there are many other candidates for who should get it this year but that’s all that’s coming to my head as of now.August 11, 2021 at 12:01 pm #1204392144
8 nominees is over kill. MTV is always doing the most.
Honestly, I would’ve cut out Harry and Shawn’s videos, and boom, Best Pop is back to normal. Harry because although TPWK has a great message, its already nominated in a category celebrating that message, and also it didn’t do very well on the US charts. (#118) Shawn because Wonder had great visuals, but again, even though the song did decent, the Wonder era was brought down by piss-poor marketing due to a change of executives at his record label, Island. (If anything, I think Wonder should’ve gotten a few professional category noms)August 9, 2021 at 4:59 pm #1204389341
I think that should probably help for context. It’s deemed ‘long-term’, so really it can end at any time. Although, I wouldn’t wish that to end just for a 15-minute medley watched by millions of people, even with its significance. Swift’s actually made more than $25 million from the deal.August 9, 2021 at 3:07 pm #1204389218
That being said, why has no one mentioned the Foo Fighters? I think that would be pretty badass. Plus, I don’t think an Alternative Rock act has headlined the show in the past ten years. With the rise of artists like Billie Eilish and a trendy resurface of rock music thanks to “good 4 u” and “my ex’s best friend” for example, I think it’s a great idea to get an act from Alternative now before it goes “out of style”. (SOURCE: Gen Z person who’s seen so many music trends go in and out, like way too much)August 9, 2021 at 3:04 pm #1204389207
I think y’all are forgetting one important thing; As exciting as a Taylor Swift halftime show could be, she’s still sponsored by Coca-Cola. Remember; this is Pepsi’s sponsored halftime show. Not to knock the sails off anything, but any music artist that’s sponsored by Coca-Cola might be advised not to do the show until at least Pepsi no longer sponsors the Halftime Show (which I believe Super Bowl LV is the last one their contracted to do unless they extended that contract). 2023 might be Taylor’s first chance.July 26, 2021 at 8:09 am #1204363638
I think that if MTV does what they did last year for Push Best New Artist, giving a whole range of artists and then narrowing the list down as the ceremony date gets closer, I can see the final three definitely being Olivia Rodrigo, The Kid LAROI & Polo G.July 16, 2021 at 3:00 pm #1204349630
“Save Your Tears” is NOT getting in both Pop & R&B.
Well, it’s called a shortlist because of the possible categories. Yes, I know it won’t make both, but however, I am considering how some people consider the song as pop and others consider the song as R&B. Which is why I put the song in those categories of possibility, as a way to secure no possible shock if it gets nominated for a genre others consider the song not to be. (At least for me, it’s a pattern I’ve noticed)Not now
