BEST MALE VIDEO
Kendrick Lamar – "Swimming Pools (Drank)"
Bruno Mars – "Locked Out Of Heaven"
Ed Sheeran – "Lego House"
Robin Thicke f/ T.I. & Pharrell – "Blurred Lines"
Justin Timberlake – "Mirrors"

FRONTRUNNER: Justin Timberlake – "Mirrors"
TOUGHEST COMPETITION: Robin Thicke f/ T.I. & Pharrell – "Blurred Lines"

Bruno Mars, Robin Thicke, and Justin Timberlake are also competing for Video of the Year.

Timberlake leads with six nominations this year. Mars and Thicke are nominated for four moonmen apiece.

Kendrick Lamar is also up for Best Hip-Hop Video. This is Ed Sheeran's only bid.

Eminem is the biggest winner in this category's 29-year history with three wins. He's MTV's male equivalent to Madonna, who has prevailed three times for Best Female Video.

Justin Timberlake is a previous two-time champ in this race and has only lost once – to Usher in 2004. He's tied with the most victories here with Tom Petty, Beck, Will Smith and Chris Brown. If he triumphs again, he'll tie Eminem's record. Timberlake's toughest competition is Robin Thicke, whose "Blurred Lines" has topped Billboard's Hot 100 for the past 10 weeks and counting.

I predict Timberlake will win Best Male Video.
