Andrew Donoho and Tomás Whitmore each take home Moon People Sunday night, Andrew Donoho won his second Moon Person, and Tomás Whitmore won his first, at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards.

In consecutive years, the collaboration between Andrew Donoho and twenty one pilots earn the Best Rock Video crown. This year, their fiery video for "Heavydirtysoul" nabs the award, following up last year's win for "Heathens" in the same category.

MTV also decided to recognize all six videos nominated in the Best Fight Against The System category, including Tomás Whitmore's powerful video for “Immigrants (We Get the Job Done)” from The Hamilton: An American Musical Mixtape.

The night also featured a live medley performance from P!nk, who recreated elements of Georgia Hudson's "What About Us" music video during her electric 7 minute Video Vanguard performance.

P!nk 'What About Us' Directed by Georgia Hudson

Georgia Hudson creates a poignant and poetic piece for P!nk's new music video “What About Us” Combining an emotional narrative, explosive raw performance, colour, fashion, and dance, "What About Us" is a video that feels as big as the song, while also leaving room for moments of intimacy and emotional depth. P!nk, who later this month will be honoured with the Video Vanguard Award at the 2017 MTV VMAs, strengthens her music video legacy with Georgia's powerful, cinematic, and timely film.

Vic Mensa 'Rage' Directed by Andrew Donoho

It’s finally here and one definitely not to be missed!

Vic Mensa’s personal struggles are manifested though a surreal plane crash in the powerful new video for “Rage," directed by Andrew Donoho.

From Andrew on the video:

"Rage stood out as one of the most powerful, personal, and intense songs Vic has released, and I wanted to create something equally visceral. The song stemmed from his mindset during a fight with depression and addiction, so a plane crash felt like the perfect metaphor for the loss of control and the battle for survival. Burying this metaphor into a drug/alcohol fueled death-dream allowed the raw emotion of the song to manifest on screen in a harrowing narrative that takes place between fantasy and reality."

The Hamilton Mixtape - 'K'naan ft. Snow Tha Product, Riz Ahmed & Residente' - Immigrants (We Get The Job Done) Directed by Tomas Whitmore

Grammy, Emmy, Tony, and Pulitzer Prize-winning artistic pioneer Lin-Manuel Miranda joins forces with Executive Producer Robert Rodriguez and breakout Director Tomás Whitmore of Diktator to create a stunning and timely music video for the hit song, “Immigrants (We Get The Job Done)”.

The video, filmed entirely on trains, uses conceptual and compelling vignettes to highlight various aspects of the immigrant experience. From cramped living quarters, to border crossings, Syrian air strikes to daily working life, we are immersed in the struggles of those seeking the promise of a better life.

“To make a film that empowers and honors the migrant narrative in an inclusive manner has been nothing short of transformative for everyone involved,” Tomás says. “Our hope is that the film can convey the notion that human mobility is the cornerstone of human history, and ultimately, act as a reminder that we are all on this journey together.”

Everything Everything 'Can't Do' Directed by Holly Blakey

For Everything Everything ‘Can’t Do’ Holly loved the idea of creating something dark, a horror film of sorts to harness the energy of the track in another light. She wanted to use dirt, creating a world seemingly locking it’s characters inside... it felt fitting due to the current political climate to create an inescapable place, more and more people being reborn, turning into things they never imagined. The band are represented in the form of masks which add to the surreal feel of the film. Executive Producer Mary Calderwood said “it was wonderful being supported by Elizabeth Doonan at Sony and the band were amazing to collaborate with.”
