Beyonce, Iggy Azalea and More Score 2014 MTV Video Music Awards Nominations

0

The nominations for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards came out today, and it’s no surprise that Beyonce leads the pack with eight nominations.

The superstar released promos for every track on her self-titled fifth album, and three of those clips have landed nominations, including nods for Video of the Year and Best Collaboration for “Drunk in Love,” which features her husband Jay Z.

She is also in the running for Best Female Video and Best Choreography for Partition, and Best Video with a Social Message for “Pretty Hurts” at the annual MTV prizegiving.

Beyonce’s closest rivals are rappers Eminem and Iggy Azalea, who have picked up seven nods apiece.

Azalea’s “Fancy” music promo, based on cult comedy film Clueless, will compete for Video of the Year and Best Pop Video, while she also appears in the Best Female Video category twice for “Fancy” and “Problem,” her collaboration with Ariana Grande.
