Perhaps accurately representing the iPod generation, no one artist or genre dominated at the 2008 MTVu Woodie Awards, held Nov. 12 at New York's Roseland Ballroom.

Motion City Soundtrack kicked off the night by winning the Video of the Year Woodie for ''It had to be You.'' They were followed by indie rappers Atmosphere, who picked up the Performance Woodie. Eighties revivalists Chromeo took home the Left Field Woodie, while NYU band the Bride Wore Black won for Best Music on Campus.

Chicago-native singer Matthew Santos also performed at last night's Woodies.

The Breaking Woodie went to emo band There for Tomorrow. Jack's Mannequin took home the Good Woodie for charitable work, and Paramore snagged the top prize, Woodie of the Year.

Live performances at the show included short sets by Cool Kids, Lykke Li (who was joined by Q-Tip), All Time Low, Santogold and Vampire Weekend.
