UK Music Video Awards 2009 – top honours to Shynola, Martin de Thurah, David Wilson, Dawn Shadforth and Carole Burton Fairbrother at joyful and emotional second UK MVAs
The spectacular video for Coldplay's Strawberry Swing by directing team Shynola has won Video of the Year at the second UK Music Video Awards, held last night in London.
Dawn Shadforth accepted the Icon Award from singer Alison Goldfrapp for her longstanding directing achievements, and video commissioner Carole Burton Fairbrother won the first MVA Outstanding Achievement Award.
Videos for Florence & The Machine, Oasis, Lady GaGa, Paolo Nutini, The Kooks, Speech Debelle and Wiley all won awards at the MVAs, presented at a packed-out auditorium at the Odeon West End in Leicester Square by Adam Buxton.
It was a night of joy, emotion and lots of laughter. MVA host Adam Buxton opened proceedings with some video messages from some well-known pop stars - having first given them a hilarious makeover. Then, as with the inaugural MVAs last year, he introduced each award with a specially composed 'stingle'.
In total 25 awards were handed out for the greatest achievements in music videos in Britain and beyond over the past twelve months - plus others for other forms of visual promotion of music - celebrating all aspects of their creativity and craft. Awards sponsors included Panalux, 3 Mills Studios, sweet16, Metropolis Studios, MUZU.TV, BEAM TV, shots, Tuborg and Locomotion.
The final triumph, with the Video of the Year, was with Shynola - a success tinged with sadness. It is almost exactly a year since Shynola collective member Gideon Baws died suddenly of an undiagnosed heart ailment, and earlier in the evening, while collecting the Best Rock Video award for Strawberry Swing with colleague Chris Harding and video commissioner Kirsten Cruickshank, Shynola's Richard Kenworthy remembered Gideon, and what he would be saying if he were there. It was the most poignant moment of the night.
