1990: All the VMA Award Presentations!




The night of Thursday September 6th 1990 saw the 7th Annual MTV Video Music Awards take place at the Universal Amphiteatre in Los Angeles, California.

Although Madonna received a record-breaking 8 nominations that year for her "Vogue" video - as the live television broadcast unfolded disappointment came, with Madonna failing to win in any of the major categories. It was a frustrating night for Madonna fans watching at home, knowing that Madonna was actually there, ready to take to the podium to accept awards but in the end not getting a single chance to do that.

Here you can rewind to that night and watch from my original recording of the live show, as each of the Madonna-nominated awards is presented. As you will see "Vogue" did win for "Best Director", but the moonman for that was of course presented to David Fincher. The video also won in other technical categories which were not presented during the television special.
