Often deemed the "Oscars for youth," the MTV Video Music Awards honor the best in music videos. The MTV Video Music Awards
were originally envisioned as an alternative to the Grammy Awards. Drawing millions of teens to 20-somethings each year, the
MTV Video Music Awards have become a coveted event. And the statue presented to winners is an astronaut on the moon, symbolic
to the cable channel's early days.
The annual MTV Video Music Awards ceremony is traditionally held in mid-September and is aired live on MTV. The first ceremony
was held in 1984 at New York City's Radio City Music Hall. Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Miami have also served as hosts to past
MTV Video Music Awards.
Many celebrity musical talents have graced the stage of the MTV Video Music Awards since 1984. But when it comes to most
wins overall, Madonna earns the title with 20 awards from 1987-1999. Madonna's Papa Don't Preach, Express Yourself, Like a
Prayer, Vogue, The Immaculate Collection, Rain, Take a Bow, Ray of Light, Frozen and Beautiful Stranger are all hits that
earned video awards. Country music artist Taylor Swift is also noted for becoming the first country artists to win an MTV
Video Music Award.
