Gummy Awards

Best Video

While “2 Girls 1 Cup” got its share of votes, it wasn’t enough to beat Justice and their magic tees. Tough to say how much Nano-lash factored into the “1234” turnout, but still Leslie sits at No. 2, a rainbow cast of dancers ahead of Zach and Will’s air-humping, Battles’ Mirrored cubist jam, and Natasha’s Donnie Darko bit. And we don’t know how much “Stronger” cost Kanye (a million dollars, fam?), but it wasn’t enough to make the top ten. Still, Mr. West has something to celebrate with four Graduation vids in the top 50, joining the ranks of Battles (two) and Spoon (two) as this year’s repeat offenders. One gripe: where’s Robyn, kids? And to the voter who submitted: “what videos? they still make those?” … yup, and this year had some good ones.
