Our forum posters have been busy dishing the announcement of the nominees for the 29th annual MTV Video Music Awards. Join in the lively discussion and have your say here. See the full list of nominations here.
Below, just a sampling of their thoughts.
Gotye is in Video of the Year but not in Male Video or New Artist! David Guetta was left out of Electronic Dance Music Video. "Titanium" would have been a worthy nominee. I'm glad that "We Are Young" isn't in Video of the Year. It deserves its nominations for New Artist and Pop Video but it isn't that special.
Pretty boring choices.
I loved the surprise nomination for Childish Gambino!!!! I have a funny feeling that the winners will be like the Teen Choice Awards lol.
Not a single nod for Lady Gaga? Sad day. I didn't expect major noms but maybe some technical ones, for sure. Maybe they can use this as a platform for her collaboration with Cher, even though that seems to be more for the Grammys. Not a single Madonna nod anywhere? Not even in Female Video?
I LOVE the nods for M.I.A. (especially VOTY!!!), Lana Del Rey, Frank Ocean, Of Monsters and Men and Skrillex. It's very disappointing to me that both Gaga and Madonna were ignored when their videos are better than anything Katy Perry, Carly Rae Jepson and Nicki Minaj have ever made IMO.
