Beyonce Leads 2014 MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARD Nominations; Full List Announced

Today, Thursday, July 17th, MTV unveiled the nominees for the 2014 VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS. Fans can now vote for some of the categories online at MTV.com.



The "Video Music Awards," the loudest and at times, the most controversial, annual live celebration of music, is set to make its triumphant return to the west coast when it airs LIVE from the Forum, presented by Chase, in Inglewood, CA on Sunday, August 24th.

This year, superstar Beyoncé leads the pack with eight nominations, featuring her three videos that were released on the same day in December as part of her self-titled surprise album. Her videos for "Pretty" Hurts," "Partition" and "Drunk in Love" (featuring Jay Z) all earned nominations, including Video of the Year.
