Taylor Nominated for Five VMA Awards

The 2020 VMA nominations are out! Taylor received five nominations: Video of the Year, Best Direction, Video for Good, Best Art Direction and Best Pop! Fans can vote across 15 different categories starting now until August 23! The show will take place at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on August 30.

With the show exactly one month away on Sunday, August 30, the 2020 VMA nominee list is finally here — and it’s massive.

Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga lead the pack with nine noms each, while Billie Eilish and The Weeknd follow closely behind with six each. All four appear in the highly coveted Video of the Year category, which finds Eilish’s “Everything I Wanted” going toe-to-toe with Eminem and Juice WRLD’s “Godzilla,” Future and Drake’s “Life Is Good,” Gaga and Grande’s “Rain on Me,” Taylor Swift’s “The Man,” and The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights.”

In keeping with the year that 2020 has been, the VMAs have introduced two brand-new categories, Best Music Video From Home and Best Quarantine Performance, that spotlight the creative ways artists adapted to the shifting landscape. Voting in each of the 15 gender-neutral categories begins today over at vma.mtv.com.

MTV announced the nominees in its biggest categories via Twitter’s new Voice Tweets feature today (July 30). Last week, MTV unveiled the 17 nominees for PUSH Best New Artist, which have now been whittled down to six.
