MTV announced Thursday that Beyonce is up for eight moonman trophies, including video of the year for "Drunk in Love." Iggy Azalea and Eminem are nominated for seven awards each.

Pharrell is the only male nominated for the top prize. Along with Beyonce, his "Happy" will compete with Azalea's "Fancy," Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" and Sia's "Chandelier" for video of the year.

Beyonce's "Partition" is nominated for best female video and cinematography, while the Jay Z-featured "Drunk in Love" is up for best collaboration. Both songs are from Beyonce's self-titled fifth album, which she released in surprise form last year with all of the tracks' music videos.

"This album was a labor of love and she had such a vision of wanting to be able to tell the story of this album visually as well as audio," said Lee Anne Callahan-Longo, general manager of Beyonce's production house, Parkwood Entertainment. "She really, really set out to do something special in a visual medium."

Beyonce's "Pretty Hurts," a video displaying women's body issues and insecurities, is nominated for best direction, editing and video with a social message.

Azalea is still riding high on the success of "Fancy," which spent seven weeks on top of the Billboard charts and is nominated for best pop video and female video. The Australian performer will compete twice in both categories thanks to her other hit, the Ariana Grande smash "Problem." The rapper is not nominated for best hip-hop video, though.

Eminem's seven nominations include the latter and best male video, where he will compete with Pharrell, John Legend, Ed Sheeran and newcomer Sam Smith.

The VMAs will air live Aug. 24 from The Forum in Inglewood, California. Performers will include Grande, Usher and 5 Seconds of Summer.


当地时间7月17日,第三十一届MTV音乐录影带大奖(MTV Video Music Awards)2014提名名单出炉。

天后碧昂丝(Beyoncé)毫无疑问地成为今年提名名单中的绝对主角,这位32岁的歌手入围了年度最佳录影带、最佳女歌手录影带,最佳舞蹈设计等八项大奖,领跑众星。其中,她与丈夫Jay-Z共同合作的《Drunk in Love》分别入围了年度最佳录影带和最佳组合两个奖项。

说唱天王埃米纳姆(Eminem)此次重出江湖,一举拿下包括最佳男歌手录影带、最佳嘻哈录影带等在内的七个奖项,位居次席。来自澳大利亚的说唱新人Iggy Azalea表现抢眼,同样收获了七项提名。年初曾入围奥斯卡最佳歌曲的法瑞尔·威廉姆斯(Pharrell Williams)的《Happy》收获了三项提名,而“电臀女王”麦莉·塞勒斯的《Wrecking Ball》入围了年度最佳录影带和最佳导演两项大奖。

在“最佳男歌手录影带”提名中,英国新人山姆·史密斯(Sam Smith)的《Stay With Me》惊喜入围,他也是今年最受关注艺人奖的有力争夺者。此外,Sia和新生代歌手Kiesza的入围都让人眼前一亮。新人取得好成绩的同时,MTV曾经的宠儿,去年刚刚推出新专辑的布兰妮·斯皮尔斯(《Britney Jean》)和Lady Gaga(《ARTPOP》)受到了冷落,今年提名颗粒无收。

2014 MTV音乐录影带大奖将在当地时间8月24日晚9点在洛杉矶英格尔伍德广场举行。届时,亚瑟小子(User)和五秒盛夏乐队(5 Seconds of Summer)将登台演出,而各大奖项的归属也将在当晚揭晓。
