INSIDE SCOOP: MTV Video Music Awards Nominations


The nominees for the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards (otherwise known as the VMA’s) have been announced! Check inside for the full list of nominees & see who we think should win each category.


MTV is annoying as sh*t. What’s the point of having the same videos in like every category? So many other good videos were left out because of clear music politics. AND, get the f*ck at the Rihanna snub. Why wasn’t “Man Down” nominated for anything? How the hell is “Last Friday Night” nominated, and not “S&M”? Katy is already in like every category for “Firework”. Smh, MTV continues to be a flop when they’re supposed to be “Music” television. Anyway doe, lets continue: Bolded is who will probably win, and underneath is who I think should win.

Best Pop Video:
Adele- “Rolling in the Deep”
Britney Spears- “Till the World Ends”
Bruno Mars- “Grenade”
Katy Perry- “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)”
Pitbull f/ Ne-Yo- “Give Me Everything”
My Pick: Give Me Everything

Best Rock Video:
Cage The Elephant- “Shake Me Down”
Foo Fighters- “Walk”
Foster the People- “Pumped Up Kicks”
Mumford & Sons- “The Cave”
The Black Keys- “Howlin’ For You”
My Pick: I don’t know, I don’t care.

Best Hip-Hop Video:
Chris Brown f/ Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes- “Look At Me Now”
Kanye West f/ Rihanna and Kid Cudi- “All Of The Lights”
Lil Wayne- “6 Foot, 7 Foot”

Nicki Minaj- “Super Bass”
My Pick: All Of The Lights

Best New Artist:
Big Sean f/ Chris Brown- “My Last”
Foster The People- “Pumped Up Kicks”
Kreayshawn- “Gucci Gucci”

Chris Brown f/ Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes- “Look At Me Now”
Kanye West f/ Rihanna and Kid Cudi- “All Of The Lights”
Katy Perry f/ Kanye West- “E.T.”

My Pick: Nicki honestly better win but watch them feel sorry for Breezy..

Video of the Year:
Adele- “Rolling in the Deep”
Beastie Boys- “Make Some Noise”
Bruno Mars- “Grenade”
Katy Perry- “Firework”
Tyler, The Creator- “Yonkers”
My Pick: Firework is the clear winner, but watch MTV do some dumb sh*t.

  1. Agreed with the Rihanna snubbing. The pulled the same stunt last year! “Rude Boy” was one of the biggest singles that year, no noms. ‘Loud’ was a huge success, no noms. I mean really MTV??
