Jay-Z And Outkast Rule Mtv Video Music Awards

Rap superstars JAY-Z and OUTKAST made the biggest splash at last night's (29AUG04) MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS in Miami, Florida - picking up four awards each.

Jay-Z's promo 99 PROBLEMS won him the Best Rap Video, Best Direction, Best Editing and Best Cinematography prizes.

And the rapper was visibly thrilled. Dressed in a white suit and straw hat, he told the crowd after picking up the Best Rap Video prize, "I was trying to push the envelope and this is my reward," before acknowledging girlfriend BEYONCE KNOWLES: "What up, B!"

Beyonce didn't go home empty handed either - winning the coveted Best Female Video award for NAUGHTY GIRL.

But Outkast scooped the biggest prize of the night and helped make it a night dominated by hip-hop and R+B.

The duo won Video Of The Year, as well Best Hip-Hop Video, Best Special Effects In A Video, and Best Art Direction In A Video for their smash hit single HEY YA!

USHER's collaboration with LIL JON and LUDACRIS helped him walk away with the Best Male Video and Best Dance Video gongs - his first and second VMAs.

Elsewhere there were two prizes for NO DOUBT and one apiece for ALICIA KEYS, LINKIN PARK, THE BLACK EYED PEAS, YELLOWCARD and rock newcomers MAROON 5, JET and FRANZ FERDINAND - but nothing for last year's (03) show stealer BRITNEY SPEARS, whose raunchy TOXIC video failed to win her the Video Of The Year, her sole nod.
