The 2008 MTV Video Music Awards took place on September 7, 2008 live from Paramount Pictures Studios. Nominations for a majority of the categories were announced on the MTV program "FNMTV" after being selected through viewer online voting at MTV.com. The remaining, professional categories were chosen by a panel of music industry professionals. Unlike previous editions of the show, MTV announced the winners to the professional categories three days before the ceremony (September 4) via a press release, rather than on the pre-show or main show [http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1594119/20080904/west_kanye.jhtml] . The rest of the winners were announced during the ceremony. Comedian Russell Brand hosted the event. [http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5j2_ys92nzdHaHVnY7r8ytZG8edwAD9329TVO0] On September 4, 2008 it was announced that Britney Spears would open the event.

This year's awards were a huge improvement ratings-wise, seeing a 19% rise on last year with 8.4 million viewers. It was also a 23% advance over the 5.76 million who saw the 2006 ceremony.

Controversy

Host Russell Brand made controversial remarks which were not taken well by some in the United States [http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/article4710449.ece] . He urged Americans to vote for Barack Obama and called President George W. Bush a "retarded cowboy fella".

Additionally, one of Brand's jokes during the night centered around purity rings, specifically those worn by the Jonas Brothers. Jordin Sparks, who also wears a purity ring, began her introduction of T.I. by saying "It's not bad to wear a promise ring because not everybody, guy or girl, wants to be a slut." Sparks was criticized for implying that those who do not wear purity rings or do not abstain are promiscious. [http://www.news.com.au/entertainment/story/0,26278,24317914-5016463,00.html]

Censorship

In repeat airings all references to Barack Obama, John McCain and George W. Bush were removed from Russell Brand's opening monologue.

Promotion

Several Promos were made that featured host Russell Brand and MTV regulars Britney Spears, Pete Wentz, and LL Cool J. They have been shown both on MTV and MTV Hits numerous times. Britney Spears' promos were given a lot of attention. The promos featured Spears and Brand in a Paramount lot ad-libbing while an elephant was positioned in the background, reference to "the elephant in the room", rumored to be her criticized 2007 VMA performance, which they refrained from discussing in the commercials. [http://www.eonline.com/uberblog/detail.jsp?contentId=22771] [http://www.accesshollywood.com/article/10750/britney-spears-records-vma-promo-spot-with-russell-brand/]

There was also a promotion that appeared on Nickelodeon, featuring the cast of "iCarly".

During the program, the MTV networks VH1, MTV Hits, and MTV Jams did not air their usual programming at all, instead displaying full-screen cards guiding viewers to watch the ceremony on MTV, with VH1 using a rotating "billboard" of sponsors to promote 'sneak peeks' of the live ceremony which appeared in the top-left corner with false crowd noise in the background. Oddly, during the VMA commecial breaks, VH1 also carried regular advertising.
