The MTV Video Music Award "(VMA)"

Post  Dinahkin on Thu 14 Jul 2011, 9:24 pm

The MTV Video Music Award (commonly abbreviated as a VMA), is an award presented by the cable channel MTV to honor the best in music videos. Originally conceived as an alternative to the Grammy Awards (in the video category), the annual MTV Video Music Awards ceremony has often been called the "Oscars for youth", an acknowledgment of the VMA ceremony's ability to draw millions of youth from teens to 20-somethings each year.
By 2001, the VMA had become a coveted award. The statue given to winners is an astronaut on the moon, one of the earliest representations of MTV.
The annual VMA ceremony is usually held in mid-September, and broadcast live on MTV. The first VMA ceremony was held in 1984 at New York City's Radio City Music Hall. Other VMAs have been held in Los Angeles, Miami, and Las Vegas.
The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards will take place on August 28, 2011 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

Current award categories
Video of the Year, Best Male Video, Best Female Video, Best New Artist, Best Pop Video, Best Rock Video, Best Hip-Hop Video, Best Dance Video, Best Collaboration, Breakthrough Video, Best Direction in a Video, Best Choreography in a Video, Best Special Effects in a Video, Best Art Direction in a Video, Best Editing in a Video, Best Cinematography in a Video, MTV Video Vanguard Award
