MTV knows how to hold an awards show, from the fun Movie Awards in the spring to the no-holds-barred, did-Beyonce-just-reveal-a-pregnancy Video Music Awards in the fall. But did you know that they also hold the O Awards in June, which celebrates the weird, wacky world of music on the web?
The internet is where everyone finds and listens to music these days, so MTV celebrates that by singling out the best out there. Check out a few of the nominees and go down the pop-culture blackhole of listening to them all afternoon!
Best Artist Instagram
A good celebrity instagram account is pretty much an art form. Nominees include Bon Iver and Mariah Carey.
Best Artist to Follow on Twitter
A lot of celeb accounts are just a place for them to promote their projects, so it's fun when an artist shows a little personality! Nominees include Solange, Questlove, and Bruno Mars.
