Lady Gaga, Eminem Lead VMA Nominees

Lady Gaga and Eminem

MTV is going gaga for Lady Gaga. The reigning pop queen dominates the nominations for the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards.

Gaga racks up a whopping 13 nods, including Best Pop Video, Best Female Video, and Video of the Year at the 27th annual show. She also claims bragging rights with the most nominations ever in a single VMA, as well as being the first female artist nominated for two different videos in the Video of the Year category for “Bad Romance” and “Telephone” featuring Beyoncé.

“I’m so honored for all the little monsters and self-professed freaks of the universe, to have more VMA nominations in a single year than any artist in MTV history. Ironically, I’m even more proud it’s an unlucky number; 13,” said Gaga. “A long time ago the world told me and my little monsters we would never be heard, together we changed the rules. God put me on Earth for three reasons: to make loud music, gay videos, and cause a damn raucous. Thank you MTV!”

Eminem follows his labelmate with eight nominations including Best Male Video and Video of the Year for “Not Afraid.” “Apparently MTV doesn’t care that I have two massive stadium shows on the other side of the country the day after the VMAs. F me, right?!?!,” joked Eminem about his co-headlining concerts with Jay-Z. “I mean, I’ll be there but don’t expect me to be nice about it.”

The 2010 MTV Video Music Awards will air live from the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday, September 12, at 9 p.m.

A selection of this year’s nominees can be seen below. Click here for the full list.

    I love Lady GaGa, really excited she got the recognition she truly deserves because face it, the woman is a workaholic, but in the same sense…

    I thought it was kinda fucked up that Rihanna didn’t get any nominations at all, especially when it was a year she released 5 videos (Russian Roulette, Hard, Rude Boy, Rockstar 101, & Te Amo) & I understand people might say “Oh she sucks, blah blah blah” yet as a striving director myself it’s kinda sad really that such beautiful videos by Melina & Anthony Mandler won’t get the recognition they honestly deserve.

    Still….congrats to GaGa

    Nicki was robbed! Massive Attack was epic. Nicki set the bar higher than any artist in the industry!

    Best Video, Best Hip Hop, Best Female , Best Direction belongs to the “Queen Of Hip Hop” Nicki Minaj

    This should make a lot of people happy since they LOVE Gaga and Eminem and HATE everybody else (though I don’t hate them). Yes, I did indeed say it.

  5. This List Sucks

    Why is beyonce even nominated for video this is a horrible list compiled of the same people. Gaga gets 13 nominations?!? What’s wrong with MTV. The Black Eyes Peas had an album with massive singles, Rihanna could have gotten a nomination for that awful Rude Boy song of hers. And here we go with Taylor Swift again. She’s getting her pity nomination to keep everyone guessing if she wins. Considering it’s her lowest charted single and the fact that video didn’t receieve airplay from country stations or MTV is actually a shock. It’s a little premature for Nicki Minaj to receive a best new artist nomination also. Where was Kelly Clarkson, P!nk, Britney Spears, hell even Adam Lambert Deserved a nomination for best pop video atleast. MTV has been slipping for the past two years with VMAs. Next thing we know Russel Brand will be hosting again this year

    i really feel like that noms list was half-assed. same videos were nominated in every category, it seemed like.

    and i’m nothing close to a rihanna stan or anything, but she should have at least gotten a female nod.

    speaking of her, i think rihanna should of replaced taylor swift’s female nom. but they have swift going head to head with beyonce’s shitty video phone video. MTV is obviously looking for another stunt or is trying to be funny.

    [Reply]

  36. Speaking truth

    Video phone don’t deserve not one of those awards it is one of beyonce’s worst song and video. They could have given those spots to other deserving artist such as BEP or Rihanna. I guess video phone was just another excuse to give Gaga more awards. Are they counted in her 13? Rated R might not have been one of Rihanna’s best albums but she did put out some damn good videos. Congrats to Gaga tho …I hope she wins some but i dont know if 13 was even necessary.

    MTV is not about the music; it’s only about image and popularity now. There’s another artist who I KNOW has put out some excellent music AND videos but wasn’t nominated. And actually, I don’t feel bad about it because they’re too above it, anyway. Hopefully they will be nominated for a Grammy, the only music award…I was gonna say “that counts” but they do the same thing. Real music doesn’t matter anymore. I’ll be glad when (and if) we get past this garbage era.

    Rihanna wasnt nominated for rude boy cause the video was Terrible but could’ve gotton a nomination for hard..maybe she should focus more on her music and tours instead of canceling tour dates and taking vacations

    @JDR

    u must be blind or a hater (or both) to think the video to rude boy was terrible… i’ll tell you whats terrible, the “video phone” mess that beyonce put out

  46. JDR

    @makin love
    im a fan of rihanna’s music but in my opinion the video wasnt all that great..could’ve been better. Beyonce was nominated because its a collaboration between 2 huge popstars and to give gaga more nominations

    [Reply]

  47. cari s.

    Wow. Gaga has 18 nominations in total (including ‘Video Phone’. Amazing! She deserves them all. And Beyonce has 8 (including Telephone) while on break! Impressive!

  53. Get off Gaga's Dick

    Honestly? 13 nominations for gaga? that’s obviously just so all the millions of gaga fans tune in to watch it.

    Videophone does not deserve any nominations, that video was terrible!

    HA I didn’t even know there was a video for Fifteen

    Black Eyed Peas, please.

    Rihanna should have not a nomination for Russian Roulette & Hard. I don’t feel Rude Boy deserves a nomination, but when compared to shitty videos like Airplanes, then it probably should be up there!

    Your Love is my Drug deserves a nomination way more than TiK ToK.

    WOOO Janelle Monae not a nom for Best Choreography!

Also WHATS UP WITH THE DARN GAGA HATERS I MEAN SHE IS BEAUTIFUL AND EXTREMLY TALENTED THAN STUPID MINAJ…. Eminem and GaGa are the BEST artists (especially GAGA) that made this world different. And Justin Beiber….. What kind of name is BEIBER it sounds like beaver and thats what it should BE because he sounds like one!!!!!!! And Rihanna was good in “Love The Way You Lie” BUT IN “RUDE BOY” SHE SOUNDS REALLY PERVERTED!!!!!!! GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE U GAGA AND I HOPE U WIN EVERYTHING U DESERVE!!! ANGELS WILL WATCH OVER U!!!
