We’ve all come to the conclusion that the MTV awards shows are a big joke. Not that they were ever taken seriously, but at least they were entertaining to watch and you never knew what was going to happen. Every year I watch the Video Music Awards with fingers crossed that it will actually be good just to be let down and pissed that I spent 2 hours watching a shitty awards show. This year will be no different I’m sure. The nominations have been announced and there are a few diamonds in the crap that MTV considers music. Here’s a few of my picks but you can catch the full list on MTV’s website.
Best New Artist:
Broken Bells “The Ghost Inside”
Jay-Z and Alicia Keys “Empire State of Mind”
Best Hip-Hop Video:
I can’t pick…I like them all!
Best Rock Video:
Florence and the Machine “Dog Days Are Over”
