Do you know what’s fun? IRL Award Ceremonies. Celebrities no longer have to sit in front of their laptops in a dress that no one can see, with a face made up. Instead (provided they’re likely to win), they get a nice seat at a round table covered in food and booze and hopefully a trophy or two. Acceptance speeches aren’t interrupted by bad WiFi and unfortunate tech glitches, instead, they’re interrupted by real disgruntled losers, and it’s much more interesting! One of the awards ceremonies taking place in person this fall is the UK Music Video Awards 2021: a celebration of the best directors, producers, performers, stylists, cinematographers and more – there are 38 categories in total – who entered the music industry last year, against all odds. And you know what? They just announced their appointments.
Shortlisted artists whose videos have multiple nominations include Pa Salieu, Lil Nas X, Dua Lipa, Little Simz, Megan Thee Stallion, Joy Crookes, Doja Cat and Berwyn. At the top of that list is Little Simz, with five full nominations – three for âIntrovertâ (which we told her about here) and two for âWoman,â the beautiful self-directed celebration of her friends and family, including the guest. starred Jordan Dunn, Kesewa Aboah and fellow candidate Joy Crookes. Remember how awesome Pa Salieu’s video is.My family“was? Its British Nigerian director Femi Ladi was rightly nominated for Best New Director. And there are plenty of others where it comes from.
For the seventh year in a row, iD is sponsoring a category that focuses on something that can really make or break a music video: fashion. And so, without further ado, the nominations for the best wardrobe style are: “BeyoncÃ©’s”Girl with brown skin“;” from Priya Ragu “Chicken and Lemon Rice“; Joy ââCrookes”My feet don’t fail me now“; Problems sought”Lonely Cowgirl“; Tommy Cash’s”Withdrawn“and Little Simz ‘”Womenâ.
I’m sure you will agree that all of them are more than worth the price, but unfortunately we can’t break it to pieces at the Cady Heron’s Crown and distribute it among the lot. No, at the London Roundhouse on the night of November 4, 2021, someone has to win! To manage here for full nominations in all categories, and come back as soon as we let you know of the results. Until then, check out these six amazingly trendy music videos. Yes, even Tommy Cash’s “Racked”, which consists mostly of medieval armor and robes. The effort! The transport power that has!
