Full List of Nominees For the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards 2010-08-03 10:30:54

Lady Gaga and Eminem Lead the VMA Nominations

I hope Lady Gaga has already started working on some new crazy outfits, because she might be getting a whole lot of stage time for the VMAs on Sept. 12. Gaga scored 13 nominations (the most ever in a single year) — though she shares many with Beyoncé thanks to their collaborations on "Telephone" and "Video Phone." It's not just ladies' night though; Eminem earned himself eight nominations, including video of the year.

As expected, Ke$ha, Katy Perry, and Jay-Z were well-represented, but there are a few surprises, too. I'm happy to see one of my personal favorites, The Black Keys' "Tighten Up," score a nod for breakthrough video, though I sort of can't believe that Justin Bieber only got one — guess the fever isn't as hot as I thought. We're still waiting to hear who's hosting this one, but it'll be a star-studded night regardless. To see the full list, just read more.
