Hands up who likes a good music video. If your hand's not in the air then you might just have landed up in the wrong place. The UK Music Video Awards 2013 took place at Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre on October 28th. The show kicked off with some dancing and then the host, Adam Buxton, took to the stage and welcomed everybody to the 'Massive Vagina Awards' before making the audience laugh and squirm with gags and videos that included a rather borderline Lou Reed joke.

The show went pretty seamlessly and felt very relaxed for a ceremony; there was no waffle and lots of high spirits as the trophies were dished out to the worthy winners. Best International Pop Video went, rather unsurprisingly, to Solange Knowles for summery 'Losing You', directed by Melina Matsoukas. There was some tight competition with Toro Y Moi ('Say That') and Frank Ocean ('Pyramids') also in the category. Best Cinematography went to DOP Steve Annis for the stunning video for Jon Hopkins' 'Open Eye Signal' and another notably deserving winner was Best New Director Andrew Thomas Huang, the man behind the mesmerising Bjork 'Mutual Core' video.

It's been quite a year for the four French directors behind Megaforce who has got tongues wagging with their videos for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Tame Impala and not to mention that memorable Is Tropical one. Megaforce always makes me think of the Power Rangers and this director certainly has a kitsch playfulness equally as stylish and engaging. Directorial duo and fellow Frenchman Fleur and Manu also had a cracking night sweeping up two best video awards for Gessaffelstein and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Flying Lotus had two videos up for nomination and it was the brilliant 'When the Quiet Come' directed by Kahlil Joseph that won video of the year. It was good to see Darwin Deez Free grab Best Rock/Indie and London Grammar Best Alternative UK for the excellent 'Wasting My Young Years'. Led Zeppelin of course one best live coverage, but it was good to see Savages making waves in that category too. Personally, I feel that Toro Y Moi 'So Many Details' was the strongest in the not so great Best Styling category. Surely Blood Orange 'Chamakaray' or FKA Twigs' 'Water Me' are far more stylish and imaginative, no?

There was a little controversy because there was a lot of talent in the category but overall everybody enjoyed celebrating the wealth of talent putting visuals with the music to make a medium that we all love to watch, re-watch and share. Needless to say, it all ended in a rainstorm of red confetti, clinking glasses and big smiles.
