If the list of winners of the 2009 MTV VMA’s that’s currently circulating entertainment forums and boards is legitimate, someone at MTV probably will be out of a job tomorrow. The leaked list shows all the winners of the major categories, including Best New Artist and Video of the Year.
So who’s racking up the moon-men this year? By the looks of it, Lady Gaga might be going home with six awards tomorrow evening. She will allegedly be collecting awards for most of the major categories like Best New Artist. She should also be receiving Best Pop Video and Video of the Year for her song “Poker Face” while her song “Papparrazzi” earns her Best Direction, Best Cinematography and Best Art Direction.
Rapper Eminem also seems to be winning big with Best Male Video, Best Hip-Hop Video, and Best Special Effects for “We Made You.”
Also according to the list, artists Matt & Kim are the winners for Breakthrough Video. Matt & Kim will be playing Lansdowne Pub on October 7.
With the leakage of a document like this, obviously its validity has been called into question. Could Lady Gaga really win that many awards over rivals Beyonce and Britney Spears? There is much speculation about the Best New Artist award as well because voting for that category is still open to people. Unless based on the number of votes already tallied, Lady Gaga has such a ridiculous lead that she’s already been declared the winner. Or it’s all one big conspiracy and MTV just picks the artist they think should win. Form your theories now.
The Britney and Beyonce fan bases feeling ill at ease about Lady Gaga’s possible domination should know that neither female seems to be going home empty-handed. Spears is supposed to walk away with Best Editing for “Circus” and Beyonce with “ËœBest Female Video’ and “ËœBest Choreography’ for “ËœSingle Ladies (Put a Ring on it).’
The 2009 VMA’s air live tomorrow at 9 p.m. hosted by British comedian Russell Brand. Tune in to see if the leak was real or an elaborate PR stunt by MTV.
