The MTV VMA Nominations Are In

The VMA’s are always something to look forward to and it’s that time of the year again to honor these artists for their hard work and creativity. This award show particularly is a favorite because each year we get to come together to honor artists for their visual mastery and talent, but this year it’s a little different.

Instead of the usual Best Female Artist and Best Male Artist categories, they’ve switched the script and combined them into one unisex group, Artist of the Year. Of course, Kendrick Lamar was one of the nominees included along with Bruno Mars, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, The Weeknd, and Lorde.

They also added one more category with Best Fight Against The System. Big Sean, Logic, and Alessia Cara are a few of the names represented in that group.

Kendrick takes the lead with 8 nominations in Video Of The Year, Best Cinematography, Best Direction, and 4 more! Right behind him comes Katy Perry and The Weeknd tied with 5 nominations.

The VMAS will air on August 27th at 8p EST. Any video released between June 25th, 2016 through June 23rd, 2017 were considered eligible.
