As you may have predicted the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (8/30) night were a bit wackier than normal here in 2020. There was no audience and most of the show was prerecorded. That didn’t stop the awards from being given out though.
Lady Gaga wasn’t the only one racking up the moon men statues either. There was even a local winner from here in Connecticut! And he’s not even a musician.
Dr. Nate Wood who is a resident physician in his second year at the Internal Medicine Primary Care Residency Program at Yale-New Haven Hospital was a big winner on Sunday. He was nominated along with five others for MTV’s very first “Everyday Hero: Front-line Medical Workers” award. The category was created to honor first-responders, nurses, doctors, and other front-line workers.
You might remember that Nate went viral back in April for his YouTube cover of “Lean on Me”.
Congrats to Nate on his big VMA win!
