MTV Video Music Awards 2015 nominations announced - LIST

Solemn opening of the awarding ceremony to be held on August 30, 2015

Baku. 22 July. REPORT.AZ/ MTV Video Music Awards 2015 nominations announced on July 22. 

Taylor Swift leads all VMA nominees with nine nods. Taylor Swift had better clear a blank space on her mantel to hold all the new awards she may be getting soon - the "Shake It Off" singer just got the most MTV Video Music Award nominations.

Swift's clips for "Bad Blood" and "Blank Space" earned nods in categories ranging from Video of the Year to Best Female Video to Best Art Direction - part of her nine overall noms.

Swift's former opening act, Ed Sheeran, had the next most nominations - six in all, including the big Video of the Year prize for his "Thinking Out Loud."

Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar and Mark Roson each boasted five bids, while Diplo, FKA Twigs, Nicki Minaj and Skrillex each got three.

Rapper Lamar actually has more appearances on the nominations list than anyone, given his guest spot on Swift's five-times-nominated "Bad Blood" clip. But MTV doesn't count cameos as wins for the guest.

Solemn opening of the awarding ceremony to be held on August 30, 2015.
