Music Week Music Vision Awards

Each "small piece of marble with plastic decorage" has been handed out at the Music Week Music Vision Awards, which honor achievements relating to music videos, DVDs, commercials, and music channels. Information about who won the awards this year is slowly trickling out.

Dom&Nic won both Best Electronica Video and Best Video for The Chemical Brothers' "Believe".

Arni & Kinski won the award for Best Rock Video for Sigur Ros' "Glosoli". The other nominees were Mew's "Special", Oasis' "The Importance Of Being Idle", Arctic Monkeys' "I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor", Franz Ferdinand's "Walk Away", and Kaiser Chiefs' "Modern Way".

Several of the nominees have similar themes and imagery (such as death, suicide, jumping into water one-by-one, a sort of near-flying, and a nonchalant, sometimes jaunty attitude toward death).

My favorite in the category is Franz Ferdinand's "Walk Away", which did win Annie Gregson an award for Best Art Direction:

Sigur Ros - Glosoli (available on Takk)

The Chemical Brothers - Believe (available on Push The Button)

Scott Lyon of Factory Films won the award for Best Video Director, and Zeno Campbell, also of Factory Films, won Best Producer.
