2016 MTV VMA Nominations

The 2016 VMA nominations were announced live this afternoon, unveiling the nods with mural art in NYC. To absolutely no one’s surprise, Beyonce’s Lemonade swept nearly every category — sometimes more than one visual from the project per category. So it’s time to get those thumbs working to make sure your faves take moonmen home in their respective categories…

Via MTV:

Stretch your voting fingers, because your 2016 MTV Video Music Award nominations are here.

Leading this year’s nominees is none other than Beyoncé, who’s up for 11 (!) awards, including Video of the Year for “Formation” and the newest VMA category, Breakthrough Long Form Video, for her groundbreaking HBO special Lemonade. That’s the most nominations she’s ever gotten in a single year.

Adele comes in second with a total of eight nominations, seven of which are for her iconic “Hello” visual, including Video of the Year. Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” Justin Bieber’s “Sorry,” and Kanye West’s “Famous” are also up for Video of the Year.

The 2016 MTV Video Music Awards will air live from Madison Square Garden on Sunday, August 28 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

But one very notable name was completely SHUT OUT from the ceremony this year. Looks like MTV RSVP’s to the #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty as well, because they paid America’s Petty Princess absolute dust in all of this year’s categories this year. So it doesn’t appear that Kanye will have a reason to storm the stage this time around…

Oh well. Take a look at the list of those who DID actually pick up some nominations this year…
