MTV Video Music Awards predictions: Our odds in all VMA categories favor Childish Gambino, Cardi B, Ariana Grande …

Who will win the MTV Video Music Awards when they’re handed out on Monday night, August 20? Hundreds of Gold Derby users have been forecasting every category up for grabs, except for Song of the Summer, whose nominees were just announced on August 13. Scroll down for our complete predictions listed in order of their racetrack odds, with the projected winners highlighted in gold. Make sure you enter or edit your own predictions right here before the winners are announced.

Cardi B is the artist with the most nominations (10), while “Apeshit” by Beyonce and Jay-Z is the most nominated video (8), but they’re not the biggest winners we’re predicting. Instead, we think Childish Gambino will run the board, winning all seven of his nominations for his widely discussed video “This is America.” That would tie it with Lady Gaga‘s “Bad Romance” (2010) as the second most awarded video of all time, trailing only “Sledgehammer” by Peter Gabriel (1987).

But with 19 categories in all, there are plenty of other Moonmen to go around. Cardi B is the front-runner to win 3 of her 10 nominations: Artist of the Year, Best New Artist and Best Latin Video as a featured performer on Jennifer Lopez‘s “Dinero.” Meanwhile, Beyonce and Jay-Z are expected to claim two prizes for “Apeshit”: Best Collaboration and Best Hip-Hop Video. And Ariana Grande is forecast to claim a pair of prizes for “No Tears Left to Cry”: Best Pop Video and Best Visual Effects.
