Who'll win MTV VMA for best video of 2009: Beyonce, Britney, Lady Gaga or Eminem?

September 9, 2009 |  9:16 am

Oh, yeah, Kanye West is also nominated for best video of the year at MTV's Video Music Awards, which will be bestowed on Sept. 13, but this is a VMA battle among Beyonce Knowles, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and Eminem.

Britney Spears MTV VMA Video Music Awards

Kanye has never won. He was nominated for "Jesus Walks" in 2005 (losing to Green Day's "Boulevard of Broken Dreams") and for "Stronger" in 2007 (Rihanna clobbered him with her "Umbrella"). Of course, Rihanna also beat Beyonce ("Irreplaceable"), which was the latter's only other nomination in this category.

Eminem won this race twice: "Without Me" (2002) and "The Real Slim Shady" (2000). Britney won last year for "Piece of Me," but that was part of her industry-wide welcome-back-from-the crazy-house hug. Previously, she'd lost all 16 nominations in all MTV VMA categories.

There's a problem with looking back at past winners to predict who'll prevail this year. The voting process has changed radically through the years. Prior to 2006, winners were chosen by a hodgepodge of media hipsters tapped by MTV. Ballots were distributed willy-nilly among various folks like producers at E! Entertainment and VH1, etc. Then in 2006, all online voters got to decide.

Personally, I loved the outcome that year, but the victory by Panic! at the Disco ("I Write Sins Not Tragedies") was considered horribly, shockingly uncool, so voting was returned to hand-picked hipsters again in 2007 and 2008, but of a slightly different mix. This year democracy triumphs again as voting is being returned to the great unwashed.

A MTV rep explains to Gold Derby the latest voting process: "This year nominees were chosen by a voting academy which consists of label reps, management reps, press, production companies and a few talent 'tastemakers' plus 2,000 first-come, first-serve mtv.com account holders who signed up for mtv.com extras e-mails. Winners will be determined by the general public this year through voting on MTV.com and via mobile. The best new artist category will be open to the public and remain live into the show on Sept. 13."

BRITNEY SPEARS THE BEST

The only reason why bratney seems to be winning is because they post this article in her fan sites everyday and pressure each other to vote over and over again.

DAH!!!!!!!!.....


OBV BRITNEY HAS TO WIN....

WOMANIZER>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>ALL THOSE VIDEOS

Whoever thinks Britney won't win this is dumb? The winners are fan voted. Britney's fanbase is crazy and will vote like nonstop.

Britney will win Video of the year.

The one, the only QUEEN B...Beyonce that is...hands down the BEST woman in music, the best video of the past year. she has this in the bag.

Ok. Clearly everyone hear needs to start a Brittney Fan Club. Womanizer is NOT the Video of the Year. Anybody who denies that Single Ladies is the Video of the Year for 2009 is only looking to give the award to someone else for the sake of simply doing so. Come on people, like it or not, Single Ladies by far had the most impact on Pop Culrure. Whether Beyonce gets the MTV Video of the Year award or not, Single Ladies was the Video of the Year. Just like Beyonce is Billboard Woman of the Year. Just like "I am " Tour was Billboard's number one tour. Can we please give awards this year to real live performers? But Brittney may win. I mean, Piece of Me was Video of the Year last year. I know I wasn't the only one who thought Rihanna was completely robbed by MTV who basically gave Brittney those awards. That was so Rihanna's year again with Disturbia, Please Don't Stop the Music, Rehab. Gotta Go with GaGa before Brittney, at least GaGa does sing live.

Obviusly BRITNEY will win !!!
She's the QUEEN OF POP.
I LOVE BRITNEY FOREVER, IS THE BEST PERFORMER IN THE WORLD.
