Please Explain :p
If A 1980s Or 1990s Musician Wins The MTV Award For Music Video Of The Year Does That Mean Their Video Got The Most Video Airplay?

I think there's just some kind of vote. Not sure if it's by some committee or if there's fan input or if it's just some Hollywood-generated PR move and someone is getting paid.1
It's usually the video that was best, or people voted it best , maybe Martha Quinn had something to do with it 😊1
It is voted... not judged by playtime. But MTV also had a format back then. The original format had around a 2 hour planned selection of videos that looped repeatedly and was modified as a new video was released and entered. By the late 80's, that block was around 4 hours long. You could predict what video was next as it did not change until a new round of videos were added. If a video received "more" play in that era, it meant they were pushing it by adding it multiple times to a format. That usually meant they were paid to play it more.
In the 90's Total Request Live was a spot where things could change up, but it really wasn't that different day to day...0
