On Tuesday MTV announced their nominees for their 2016 Video Music Awards. In a move that no one was shocked by, Beyoncé led the nominations with 11 for her visual album Lemonade. This is the most Beyoncé has received from MTV in her entire career. Adele followed behind with eight nominations.
Both are up for Video of the Year, Best Female Video, Best Pop Video, Best Art Direction, Best Direction, Best Cinematography, and Best Editing for Beyoncé’s “Formation” and Adele’s “Hello”.
Other major artists up for nominations are Drake, Kanye West, Ariana Grande, Calvin Harris, FKA Twigs, and the late David Bowie. New solo artist Zayn is also up for Best Visual Effects for his first solo “PILLOWTALK”.
Many are shocked and some are even saying that Taylor Swift was “snubbed” by not receiving any nominations, despite her last album coming out in late 2014 that dragged well into other awards earlier this year. Last year she had 10 nominations and won four. Swift has been a mainstay and consistent performer/opener since her infamous VMA moment back in 2009 with Kanye West.
A complete list of the nominees can be found on MTV.com.
The 2016 MTV Video Music Awards air live from NYC’s Madison Square Garden Sunday, August 28, at 9 p.m. ET.
