Hound is Rocking the VMAs!
3 + 2 + 1 = the number of VMA nominations rolling in for Hound! It came as no surprise that “24K Magic” is raking in the nominations, it’s an absolutely amazing party to watch. We’re always checking our pockets for gold after that one. Bruno Mars and Cameron Duddy are up for Best Direction, Alex Delgado is up for the Best Art Direction, and the work is up for Video of the Year! Quite literally, congrats to the whole crew.
The song that you can’t stop singing out loud in the backseat of your Rover has pulled in two noms of it’s own: The Chainsmoker’s/Halsey collab “Closer” directed by Hound’s Dano Cerny! They’re looking to snag number one on Best Collaboration and Best Editing for Jennifer Kennedy. Cerny and Kennedy create a beautiful juxtaposition between that mattress that you stole and the now (you’re looking pretty in a hotel bar).
You may have noticed Miley came back with a slightly different look this year. Diane Martel was ready for it. After years of working with the Miley we’d come to know and love, including creative direction on the VMAs with Robin Thicke, Martel seamlessly turns on a dime, keeping Miley close to our hearts in “Malibu” while promoting her new image. The video is up for Best Pop Video and we can’t wait to see them take home that award!
Another congrats to the Hound Team, we’re proud to work with you. Make sure to catch the show August 27th!
