MTV Video Music Award for Best Male Video

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The MTV Video Music Award for Best Male Video is one of four original general awards that have been handed out every year since the very first MTV Video Music Awards in 1984. In 2007, though, the award was briefly renamed Male Artist of the Year, and it awarded the artist's whole body of work for that year rather than a specific video. However, the award returned to its original name in 2008. With three victories, Eminem is the artist with most wins in this category, and he also has the most nominations with nine. Meanwhile, Tom Petty, Beck, Will Smith, Justin Timberlake, and Chris Brown, all have won this category twice.
