Beyonce’s Lemonade Wins Breakthrough Long Form MTV VMA


Beyonce’s visual album Lemonade, featuring video direction by Mark Romanek (Sandcastles) and Serial’s Jonas Akerlund (Hold Up, Denial), won the MTV VMA for Breakthrough Long Form Video.  The category, which had a 25 year hiatus from the Video Music Awards was revived this year because as VMA staff stated, “the music landscape really stepped up its game.” The VMAs also honored Jonas and Beyonce’s collaboration with the Moonman for Best Female Video for “Hold Up.”
