C&C, which led with three nominations, picked up the "Soundtrack of My Life Woodie" or best album honor for "In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3" (Columbia) and "road woodie" for best live performance.
The band missed out on the "Streaming Woodie" (most streamed) for the song "A Favor House" to Fallout Boy's "Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Body?" (Fueled By Ramen). Meanwhile, Modest Mouse took the "Woodie of the Year" or best artist award and the "Silent But Deadly Woodie" (best music video) for "Float On."
Winners, which also include Sum 41, Taking Back Sunday and the Killers, were determined through public online and telephone voting. mtvU GM Stephen Friedman says the Woodies are "the first awards to honor the music college students live their lives to. It is their award to give to the artists they love, and the response has been tremendous."
An offshoot of MTV, mtvU is a 24-hour network broadcasting to more than 700 U.S. college campuses. A one-hour special honoring the winners will premiere Friday (Nov. 5) on the network and will periodically repeat throughout the following week.
