2007 MTV Music Video Awards

2007 MTV Music Video Awards
I went about the process of making my MVA predictions in a whole new way. I didn’t watch television. I used my laptop, iTunes and Napster. I listened and I watched without one commercial break or annoying interruption of someone wanting to watch CSI-Miami or reruns of Ice Truckers.

I had a blast! It was so much fun to have everything at my fingertips. I could listen or watch each nominee and their project as many times as I wanted. I could pause for snack breaks and near disasters like my big cat, Gus, trying to entice my new kitten, Abacab Genesis, down the laundry chute.

I have bolded my picks in each category.

Here’s the scoop:
