The 2014 MTV Video Music Award Nominations Are Here!

Share

The nominations for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards are finally here, and this year's competition is intense — Beyoncé obviously leads the pack with eight nominations, but Iggy Azalea and Eminem both racked up seven nominations each. Pharrell's "Happy" received multiple nods, including a nomination for video of the year. He will actually be competing against himself in the best male video category, as "Happy" has been nominated alongside "Sing," his collab with Ed Sheeran.

The VMAs will take place Sunday, August 24, at 9 p.m. ET. We're not sure if this year will bring foam fingers and twerking, but it'll probably be just as entertaining. Check out the list of nominees, below:
