Kendrick Lamar, Katy Perry and the Weeknd lead MTV Video Music Awards nominations

Nominations are out for the MTV Video Music Awards and fans can vote on their favourite artists to win on the site’s website.

 

Nominations for the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards (VMA) were announced Tuesday via Instagram Live.

Leading the nominations’ list Kendrick Lamar for his video “Humble“, which scored eight nominations. Katy Perry and The Weeknd tied for second place with five nominations each.

 

Highlights for this year’s award include the jettison of the gendered categories, something that MTV Movie & TV Awards did earlier this year. This means that Best Female Video and Best Male Video have now been collapsed into Artist of the Year. The network also introduced a “Fight Against the System” award for videos that actively fight injustice.

 

In total, there are eight categories of award, and voting for the Best New Artist will remain live through the VMA pre-show. During the pre-show, the two finalists will be announced and Twitter hashtag voting will commence, with the winner crowned during the telecast.
