VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS
The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards were held recently in California, honouring music videos released between June 2016-2017. The ceremony was hosted by pop sensation Katy Perry. The 34th annual award show aired live from the venue for the second time in its history. The music video for Taylor Swift's brand new song Look What You Made Me Do also premiered during the broadcast.
For the nominations, MTV continued to eliminate gender-specific awards categories, as they did at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards. It also announced that the "Moonman" statue would be renamed a "Moon Person". The Best Female and Best Male Video awards were replaced with one category, Artist of the Year. Kendrick Lamar led the list of nominees with eight categories (winning Video of the Year, Best Hip Hop, Best Cinematography, Best Direction, Best Art Direction and Best
Visual Effects) while Katy Perry, The Weeknd, and DJ Khaled received the second most nods.
