Taylor Swift led the MTV EMAs 2022 winners list. The songstress has won four awards at the MTV EMAs. The singer took home the Best Video and Best Longform Video awards for her 10-minute version of All Too Well (Taylor’s Version), beating top global stars.
Her video for the Taylor Hawkins Tribute concert, at Wembley Stadium, London was also nominated in the Best Longform Video category. Elsewhere, Taylor was named the winner of the Best Artist category, and the Best Pop prize, while she was also nominated in the Biggest Fans section, which BTS won.
Accepting the first award, Taylor said, ‘It’s so good to be back at the EMAs. You all look very beautiful tonight.’ The singer-songwriter continued, ‘I have been writing and directing my music video for a long time but this was the first short film I have made and I felt like I learned so much about myself of how making film can be a natural extension of my storytelling just like songwriting.’
All Too Well went viral this year after fans speculated the song is based on Taylor’s break-up with actor Jake Gyllenhaal. The song also picked up the prestigious video of the year award at the MTV Video Music Awards. This year’s ceremony is being hosted by celebrity power couple singer-songwriter Rita Ora and Oscar-winning filmmaker Taika Waititi and marks the sixth time the awards show has been held in Germany.
It is the couple’s first time working together after keeping their partnership mostly out of the spotlight since they first sparked relationship rumours last year after appearing alongside each other on red carpets. Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj was the winner of the Best Song prize for her track Super Freaky Girl. Nicki was also named the winner of the Best Hip Hop category.
The winner of the Best New award was boyband Seventeen, while Lisa took home the Best K-Pop gong. Anitta was named the winner of the Best Latin award David Guetta triumphed in the Best Electronic category. Sam Smith and Kim Petras won in the Video For Good category for the promo for their song Unholy. BLACKPINK X PUBG won Best Metaverse Performance for their in-game concert experience, while former One Direction singer Harry Styles won Best Live.
