Cardi B and The Carters lead MTV VMAs 2018 nominations

Cardi B and The Carters lead MTV VMAs 2018 nominations

MTV has today (July 17) revealed the nominations for the 2018 MTV VMAs. Leading the field is Cardi B on 10 nominations, closely followed by Beyoncé and Jay-Z – aka The Carters – with eight nods. Childish Gambino and Drake  are both up for seven awards, while Bruno Mars has secured six nominations.

The fiercely-contested Video Of The Year Award will see Ariana Grande, Bruno Mars and Cardi B, Camila Cabello and Young Thug, The Carters, Childish Gambino and Drake go head to head. The omission of Taylor Swift’s record-breaking Look What You Made Me Do video from the category has caused a lot of controversy online – the video did, however, receive nods for Best Art Direction, Best Visual Effects and Best Editing.

The 2018 VMAs will take place on Monday August 20 at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, and will air in the UK on Tuesday August 21 at 8pm on MTV UK.

Last year’s VMAs – which were hosted by Katy Perry – saw US ratings drop to 5.68 million compared to 6.5m for the 2016 broadcast. Notably, the live show had to compete with the series finale of Game Of Thrones, which had 12.07m viewers.
