It's shameful and an embarrassment to "MTV." MTV is overall a joke anyway, these days. 

They are pretty much telling the world, that these are awards only to be handed out to those under 30 years old. LOL

It makes me think there is a financial incentive package negotiated with the radio stations that play certain artist's music (almost always under 30), and then MTV nominating those artists for the VMAs, in turn. 

"Top 40" radio in 2019 really targets those listeners who are 12 to 20 years old, roughly. It's absolutely laughable that such a HUGE population segment that enjoys music is snubbed. Leaving so much $$ on the table.

The music industry is truly too corporate and ageism is alive and well.

Those nominations are embarrassing. But what's infuriating is why they invited her to the VMAs last year and did a huge premiere special for Medellin if they didn't think that Medellin, Dark Ballet, or God Control were worth nominating? :rant:

It’s also funny because young people don’t even listen to the radio haha

Do we even know the eligibility period? I believe it is usually until mid or late June or something, so the only M video that was snubbed here was Medellin. I don’t think they will recognise the other videos next year (sadly) but it’s a shit show anyway and after last years debacle I don’t think M should give them any attention anymore..ever

The VMA's are boring. The best award show that I will always remember watching and in complete awe of how wild the crowd were, was the MTV EMA's 1998 in Milan. The crowd just loved her.

All true. 

Also, does the video need to be from an official single? Her best videos are not from singles , I think, who really knows what a single is any more...

Even if they have had a category like for example "Best political video" or "Best video with a social message" or something similar, she would have not been nominated. Madonna is above and beyond MTV these days. VMAs are beneath real art. The glorious days of MTV are long long LONG over.

lol at my own naivety, when I saw GC for the first time I was like "there is no other way than this getting the best video award, cos to award anything else next to this would be near impossible without looking like a total rightwing progun f**ker" oh well, I should know better by now

Someone on another forum said God Control missed the cut off date. So it wouldnt have been able to nominated anyway.

i was expecting a latin video nom for M + M. but MTV has always pandered to the "youth" market so i'm not incensed at all. i think her last nomination was for HU. not sure whether 4M even got any nomination.

4M was nominated in 2008

"Push" artist of the year? Best "For Good" video? WTF Does these categories even mean?! 

Adam Levine really nailed it when he said these awards are "the one day a year when MTV pretends to still care about music"

I doubt she gives a shit about this so why should I. 

That's what I love about M; she doesn't give a shit about awards/critics or charts.

I share many of the sentiments in this thread. Yes, the MTV VMAs are not important. Yes, they pander to the youth market. Yes, they're corporate and corrupt and ageist.

And yet I'm still pissed off about this. Madonna (in part) MADE MTV and they've paid her absolute dust for the last 3 video cycles.

It's infuriating, since she has been truly creative, daring and prolific this time - 5 original videos? (I don't count that Time video for "I Rise.") Gorgeous painterly video? Check. Avant-garde pro-trans video? Check. Trendy age-defying trap video? Check. Provocative protest disco video? Check. Historically respectful tribute video? Check.

Somewhere, Madame X is rolling her eyes and saying "how ironic."

Yup, considered they are "childhood friends" growing up together... VMAS are in their 36th year and Madonna in her 36th year career... though M mentioned she doesn't care much about awards but when credit is due, they must be honoured.

It's in the hands of corporate branding and what's trending and when they award Beyondsay with more awards, they were no longer legit in any way, shape or form... the continuous BS from these awards show are truly reductive!

I don't care. I'm enjoying the era.

But, in terms of the feedback, it's gonna be difficult consistently by the end of this year.

Year nine for Madonna.

Absolutely agree on with all the sentiments here. 

I just wish for some recognition on a large scale a la 1999 vma drag homage to M. 

Like come on hating Ass bitches!! 

Acknowledge the queen !!

It would be a surprise if she was nominated. The world is missing out on the best stuff.

They still do this show 😂 90s - early 00s this would have been a major piss take but these days it's laughable there's even a thread devoted to this tripe 😂 

Whos the video vanguard award going to, Ashanti's dog walker hahahaha

what a waste of everyone's time. MTV for as groundbreaking as it was is probably the most out of date media outlet going. Shame really but reality tv killed it off. RIP. Again 😂
