. . .let`s continue and add a few more:
- the "MTV video vanguard"-award for PG
. . .but also "long form" beside the "short clips":
GRAMMY-award nomination for "P.O.V" in 1991

Gabriel still holds the record with "Sledgehammer" (9 MTV-awards) in the history of the MTV-awards - the clip that won the most MTV-awards ever.

There are many awards for his funk-jazz-american music and videos like Sledgehammer,Big Time and so on.That is really good dance music with an ironic undertone - so Peter should not feel blamed,if they play it, when he appears- he should show a Victory-V.
Better dancing two rounds Sledgehammer with circeling hips than eating 2 cakes. That's a good circle-training for this winter and a kind of worlddancing - in opposite to stockfish-dancing!
PS: At the Princes-Gala it was a bit overdone, now Phil Colins always does his goating.(Sorry, Phil, I have to crawl a bit.)
