    Oh well. The special effects in WFTE are pretty good.

    Waiting for the End has been my favorite music video thus far in Linkin Park's videography. I hope they win and think they will. But if they don't win, I'd be happy with Chromeo taking the award.

    Might as well give that one to Adele, since she was nominated for everything else. *chuckles*

    First of all, I would like to say congrats to LP for being nominated and thank you to Ghost Town Media for the special effects.

    I have just viewed all the nominated videos on YouTube so I can compare the special effects of each of them to those of Waiting for the End.

    Having done so, I feel confident that WFTE can be the winner of this category with the strongest competition coming from Katy Perry's "E.T." and debatable competition coming from Kanye West's "Power". Both of the videos have pretty cool effects (more so in E.T.).

    For Chromeo's "Don't Turn the Lights On", the effects are pretty cool but, I could only see effects on the characters eyes and mouth. Didn't really stand out for me.

    Now I want to talk about the Manchester Orchestra's video for "Simple Math" separately. Despite the fact that I don't feel the special effects are good enough to win the award, I still think they are effective for the song and video and fit very well. I enjoyed watching and listening to this song and do think it's worth a watch and listen. **

    So with that in mind I keep my fingers crossed that Linkin Park win the award. I think it's good that it's a non-voting category as I feel that Katy P would steal the award. The video for "E.T." has been viewed a whopping 107 million times (WFTE has been viewed 23 million times) and we all know that popularity steals awards in the majority of cases!

    ** If you are interested in watching the Simple Math video by Manchester Orchestra, go here:-

    It's a shame that Iridescent wasn't nominated!

    Yo Kayne, I'm really happy for you(r nomination). I'mma let you finish, but WFTE has the best special effects of all time. OF ALL TIME.
