I take it's too late to add a category, but I just thought it would be nice to honour the antville community with an Antvillean of the year award?

Congrats to all the potential nominees; there's a lot of great clips here.

But is it just me, or was 2010 sort of a weak year for videos?

Odd because it was a really great year for albums. I assume it's just ever-shrinking budgets and diminishing work from the director that emerged from the mid 2000s.

Video of the year? none of the ones suggested here.
