GRAMMY Awards - Best Music Video NomineesNow, of course, we all go to the Grammys to be entertained, but there is one category I always keep an eye on. The whole reason I became a video editor is because of music videos. I love visual storytelling and music videos are short, concise, entertaining mini films/extended commercials trying to make the most impact in a particular amount of time. The Grammy award in this music video category goes to the performer, director, and producers, as voted by the Recording Academy, in an untelevised event. For fun prep, you can catch every music video winner from 1984 to 2016 on Yahoo to hold you over until they announce this year’s addition to the list: Yahoo – Every Grammy Music Video Winner 

Finally, here are your 5 nominees for the 2017 Best Music Video Grammy:

Beyoncé, “Formation”

Leon Bridges, “River”

Coldplay, “Up & Up”

Jamie XX, “Gosh”

OK Go, “Upside Down & Inside Out”
