Taylor Swift Wins 9 Awards At The 2023 MTV VMAs

Taylor Swift emerged a big winner at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards, scooping nine prizes, and she made history as the first person to win Video of the Year four times.

 The 33-year-old singer-songwriter dominated the evening on Wednesday night (12/09/23) as she took home gongs for the likes of Video of the Year and Song of the Year, both for her tune ‘Anti-Hero’, as well as the coveted Artist of the Year accolade.

Taylor also scooped the Best Direction, Best Pop, Best Cinematography, and Best Visual Effects awards for ‘Anti-Hero’.

As she accepted the Best Pop prize, she told the crowd: “I love making pop music, I love making pop music videos, I also love making country.I love slinking around different genres and the only reason I’m allowed to do that is because you, the fans, gave me the opportunity to do this. One big adventure and it’s all so much to challenge myself to make music that’s different than what I made last and I just love you for it. But I really love making pop music, so thank you so, so, so much.”

She made history by winning the Video of the Year prize for a record fourth time after previously scooping the gong for ‘All Too Well: The Short Film’, ‘Bad Blood’, and ‘You Need to Calm Down’.

Taylor, who also won Album of the Year for ‘Midnights’ and the Show of the Summer accolade, praised her longtime songwriting partner Jack Antonoff – who wasn’t in attendance after accepting the Song of the Year gong.

Taylor was nominated for 11 awards in total, and only lost out in the Best Editing category, to Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Vampire’, and Song of the Summer, which went to Jungkook and Latto’s tune ‘Seven’.
