Video of the Year went to Desman for his song Electric/Night Like This, directed by RT!, the man behind six of this year’s nominated videos, including the MuchFACT Indie Video of the Year, which went to JDiggz featuring Neverending White Lights for This Time and Best Post-Production of the Year, which went to Danny Fernandes featuring Belly for Automatic. Despite his dominance, though, RT! failed to snag Director of the Year, which went to Sean Wainsteim for his espionage-esque video for You Say Party’s Lonely’s Lunch.
Other notable winners were Lady Gaga and Bieber, both of whom won all the awards they were nominated for. Lady Gaga sealed her international dominance by beating out nine other nominees to take home the award for International Video of the Year — Artist for Judas, and picked up the fan choice UR FAVE International Video for Born This Way.
Teen heartthrob Bieber also picked up two awards. Bieber’s Somebody to Love (remix), featuring Usher, tied with Drake’s Find Your Love for International Video of the Year by a Canadian. But the Beliebers rallied and the Stratford, Ont., native snagged the UR Fave New Artist award for his Somebody to Love (remix) video.
