An MTV Video Music Award is presented to artists to honor the best in the music video medium. The award is a statue in the shape of an astronaut given to winners. The first Video Music Award ceremony was held in 1984 at New York City's Radio City Music Hall. The award show is often referred to as the "Oscars for Youth."
