MTV just announced the nominations for the 2017 MTV VMAs via Instagram Live!
Kendrick Lamar has the most nominations this year with eight total! Katy Perry and The Weeknd have the second most nominations this year with five each.
This year, instead of having Best Female Video and Best Male Video as categories, MTV has combined them to form Artist of the Year. This decision followed the MTV Movie & TV Awards, which also featured gender-neutral categories, and it is a huge step forward for inclusivity in awards shows.
Be sure to tune into the 2017 MTV VMAs, which will air on Sunday, August 27 live on MTV. Just Jared will also be live blogging the show, so be sure to stay tuned that day!
