Nominees Unveiled for 2014 UK Music Video Awards

  • Posted 46 months Ago

The nominations have been unveiled for the 2014 UK Music Video Awards, the ceremony for which will be taking place this Monday 10 November at the Southbank Centre in London.

Alt-J, Paolo Nutini, Jungle, FKA Twigs, Coldplay, Disclosure, London Grammar, Jon Hopkins, Peace, and Paloma Faith all managed to pick up multiple nominations, while Metronomy are leading the charge with a total of 6 nominations, including one in the Best Video Artist category. Their Michel Gondry-directed video for "Love Letters" will also be pitched against Sophie Muller's video for Katy B's "Crying For No Reason" in the Best Pop Video category.

Big time American directors such as Nabil and Vincent Haycock are also in the running for their work with Alt-J and Paul McCartney, respectively.

"The nominations are a statement on the strength of creativity and invention in music videos today. They represent the power of music videos to bring people closer to the music, to be an entertainment format (and occasionally Art) in their own right," said the UK Music Video Awards editorial director, David Knight. "We are primarily honouring the people behind the camera, who make the videos, but I’m delighted that this year we’ve introduced a Best Video Artist award, to honour the bands and solo artists who foster creative relationships with filmmakers and make distinctive music videos as a result. And it’s a great first shortlist."

Buy tickets for the award ceremony on 10 November at The Queen Elizabeth Hall on London's South Bank.
