The VMAs: Best Snubbed Video Category

Posted on


101231__kanye_lAhead of tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye West has spoiled the suspense and announced the best video of the year: His. And get this: It wasn’t even nominated!

It seems only fitting to herald a ceremony most noted for dustups and fashion cataclysms by opening the floor to controversy: Take up the Kanye challenge and tell us what’s the Best Video Snubbed by the 2006 VMAs. Staff picks include:

Fiona Apple’s “Not About Love”

Juvenile’s “Get Ya Hustle On”

Mates of State’s “Fraud in the ‘80s”

Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Gold Lion”

And while they didn’t have the good sense to laud the inspired Cirque du Vérité choreography of OK Go, the VMA gods have at least deemed them worthy of a live performance: Yes, they’ll be doing the treadmill dance. Which, really, is reason enough for watching, right there. That, and to see if this Axl Rose/Vince Neil thing finally comes to a head.
