    2016 VMA's Nominations Announced

    mtv-vmas-live-stream-how-to-970-80.jpg

    The nominations for this year's MTV Video Music Awards have finally been announced.

    There's few surprises in the list, with Beyoncé leading the pack and set to sweep the board with a grand total of five nominations in the main categories. However, we are shocked by the low quality of some of the videos nominated. Justin Bieber's 'Sorry', a green screen dance video which doesn't even feature the singer and plays out like a fan-made compilation, is one of the nominations; while Rihanna's 'Work', the no-choreography, no-creativity, no-looks, no-aesthetic, no-talent video that was so boring they had to film two, is also nominated twice; and Sia's music video that isn't a music video but is actually a lyric video for 'Cheap Thrills' is also nominated. Meanwhile, more worthy music videos like Fergie's 'MILF$', Gwen Stefani's 'Make Me Like You', Lana Del Rey's 'High By The Beach', Bonnie McKee's 'I Want It All' and Cupcakke's 'Pedophile' were all paid dust.

    There's no word yet on hosts or performances we can expect on the night, but given whose currently promoting new music we can expect performances from the likes of Katy, Rihanna, Britney, Beyonce and Adele.

    What do you think of the nominations? Are they well deserved or are there some glaring omissions? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

    Honestly, the only one bey should win is that Long Form Video one. :vacuum: Lemonade was a great film but it wasn't designed to be split up into seperate videos.

    I'm rooting for Ari tho... Into You is such a great song and the video was also really good

    Bey is coming to snatch and I am here for it, Formation is a shoe in for VOTY imo, or at least it has a much better chance than 7/11 or Drunk in Love ever did in the category.

    You're right, I think she's gonna snatch it. But I'm getting pretty sick of this bitch dominating every VMAs show. :vacuum: We need Gaga or Kanye to come back and steal the crown again.

    Odyssey better win for best long form. Lemonade was boring aside from the cool cinematography. Delilah better win as well. That was absolutely amazing.

    Why do I feel like Florence isn't gonna win anything? :stretcher:
