Bad Blood wins VOTY, Alright wins Best Direction at 2015 MTV VMAs
At the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, held in Los Angeles last night (August 30), Taylor Swift's cameo-studded video for Bad Blood, directed by Joseph Kahn, won Video Of The Year - with Joseph and several co-stars joining the singer on stage to collect the award (above).
Kahn's video for Bad Blood won two awards, as did his video for Swift's Blank Space at last night's VMAs, hosted by Miley Cyrus, where the highlight was Kanye West declaring his intention to run for the US Presidency in 2020 during a 13 minute long speech when he picked up his honorary Video Vanguard award.
In the VMAs' technical categories, Colin Tilley and Little Homies won Best Direction for the video for Kendrick Lamar's Alright. Also there were wins for Larkin Sieple in Best Cinematography (for Flying Lotus's Never Catch Me ft Kendrick Lamar), François Rousselet and Jason Fijal in Best Art Direction (for Snoop Dogg's Too Many Pros), and Beyoncé, Ed Burke and Jonathan Wing in Best Editing for Beyoncé's 7/11.
