The MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) is an award show presented by cable channel MTV to honour the best in the music video medium.
Originally conceived as an alternative to the Grammy Awards, the annual MTV VMAs have often drawn millions of youths, from teens to those in their 20s each year.
The statue given to winners is an astronaut on the moon, one of the earliest representations of MTV, and was colloquially called a “Moonman”
The statue was conceived by Manhattan Design–also designers of the original MTV logo.
