Grammy Award for Best Music Video

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Grammy Award for Best Music Video
Awarded forQuality short form music videos
CountryUnited States
Presented byNational Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences
First awarded1984

The Grammy Award for Best Music Video is an honor presented at the Grammy Awards, a ceremony that was established in 1958 and originally called the Gramophone Awards,[1] to performers, directors, and producers of quality short form music videos. Honors in several categories are presented at the ceremony annually by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States to "honor artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry, without regard to album sales or chart position".[2]

Originally called the Grammy Award for Best Video, Short Form, the award was first presented in 1984, as was a similar award for Best Long Form Music Video. From 1986 to 1997, the category name was changed to Best Music Video, Short Form. However, in 1988 and 1989, the award criteria were changed and the video awards were presented under the categories Best Concept Music Video and Best Performance Music Video. The awards were returned to the original format in 1990. The category was called Best Short Form Music Video until 2012, from 2013 it was shortened to Best Music Video.[3] Award recipients include the performers, directors, and producers associated with the winning videos.

Johnny Cash, Peter Gabriel, Kendrick Lamar, Janet Jackson, and Michael Jackson hold the record for the most wins as a performer in this category, with two each (Michael was also a member of the supergroup USA for Africa and was highly involved in the "We Are the World" project).[4] Mark Romanek holds the record for the most wins as a director, with a total of three. Icelandic singer Björk holds the record for the most nominations as a performer without a win, with four.
