as a videography major, the cuts in miley cyrus video were pretty choppy. very random transition. it has some unique footages but the edit was not up to par. so best editing…. i dont think so

Why are we surprised? MTV sold it’s soul a long long long time ago. This is bullshit.

Lana Del Rey has to win Best Cinematography for ‘Ride’. That is one big masterpiece! And Art Direction for ‘National Anthem’…
She is in the categories where she belongs.. She’s not in the company of those artistically meaningless people, and I’m glad!

VMAs was once about Great Videos…Now it like the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards.

Miley for the big win!

What a joke. Just like mtv.

Miley all the way, why everybody hating on her, so what if she changed life is about change her song and video is f****** awesome!!! MILEY ALL THE WAY….

@Ivana: You know it! Lana del rey all the way!!
