Column Twelve: MTV

by Kevin F Holy

A take on MTV's highest award: Music video's biggest thing, it was awarded to Pink on Aug 27.

The award has not failed, and, while some wonder if Pink was really worth the 'honor' (she is), others have wondered what it will take for theirs to win. So: Who should?

If you want my opinion (eh), here is a shortlist:

Michel Gondry, long known to be possibly music video's best.

Joseph Kahn, this millenium's best.

Spike Jonze

Missy Elliott and

Nicki Minaj
