What happened to MTV Breakthrough Videos?

The VMA nominations have been announced with Lady Gaga taking the lead with a record 13 nods (10 for Bad Romance, 3 for Telephone featuring Beyonce. Plus, 5 for Video Phone by Beyonce featuring Lady Gaga). Following that, Eminem with 8 nominations for I’m Not Afraid.

Gaga also makes a record by getting Video of the Year for Bad Romance, and Telephone. Plus, they were also nominated for Best Choreography alongside Video Phone – To make that clear, that’s 3 Lady Gaga related videos in the Choreography category. Like I said, Lady Gaga is pretty much the only thing worth keeping an eye out now.

Pink, or should I say Dave Meyers [I should really get to work on my Meyers Music Video Director post] who directed the video for Funhouse, was nominated for 2 VMAs including Best Directing and Best Editing. But you should really check out how fun Please Don’t Leave Me is. Wickedly twisted.

But here we are because of the Breakthrough category, because we all know that the Breakthrough category is the only category that is or could be potentially interesting. And here was the surprise… the most likely to win this year would be the one that won Video of the Year 2009 at the UK Music Video Awards. How outdated is that for the VMA?

Emmys are always an afterthought here, mainly because we don’t have much time to keep up with all series, so we’re kind of at a loss when it comes to television awards. But alas, that doesn’t stop new nominations coming in~~~

The miniseries The Pacific leads nominations with 24, but if we’re talking about series… Well, Glee is leading that one list with 19 nominations – 2 nominations ahead of Mad Men (17), 4 ahead of 30 Rock (15), and 5 ahead of Modern Family (14). For the summary list check this PDF out from Emmys.tv

Other series nominated… Lost (12), The Good Wife (9), Nurse Jackie (8), Dexter (7) and House M.D (3) ~

Among the many nominations~

End of Award Season

March 11, 2010 — Leave a comment

Well guys~ it was fun… I guess.
it was very interesting to see who was really gonna win.

A lot of people I know ended up as satisfied as they could have with the winners, though I know of one or two who weren’t, which is funny seeing as how inconsistent their opinions are.

Anyway, the Award Season updates is gone now, until it begins again this December. In the meantime, this were the last 10 posts of the season.

I’d figure I’d make this post count for today, instead of tomorrow xD – If you followed, I made Oscar 2010 Nomination Predictions which were pretty okay, except it was 10% down from last year. But my record is 85%

As for my Oscar winners, last year I made a 20/24… that’s 83%, though my record is 87% in 2003 xD

Predictions include “most likely to win” to “less likely to win”

According to these predictions (can’t believe I’m wishing that I get it wrong!) – Hurt Locker wins 3, and Avatar wins 6 – though they’re all technical.

So how say you?
