2011 MTV Video Noms Announced

Still not quite sure why a network that no longer really shows videos still has an award show for them...and why the artist gets all the glory when the director is actually the one who made the damn video. I get that some artists collaborate or come up with the concept of their own video but come on...

Anyway, the odds of Katy Perry at least walking home with one award are pretty good considering she leads the nominations with 9. She earned 3 noms for her video, "Firework" alone.

Adele scored a total of 7 noms for only 1 video. Yes you read that correctly. For her awesome song, "Rolling in the Deep." Kanye West, taking that much needed break not too long ago, also got 7.

Eminem, Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and Beyoncé were not ignored getting 4 nominations each. Who was ignored for their solo work however was Rihanna. She was nominated by association as Kanye West was nominated for "All Of The Lights" which features her and Kid Cudi. Eminem was nominated for "Love the Way You Lie," which also features her. In case you are wondering, Chris Brown nabbed some noms.

Those battling for the big one, Video of the Year, are: Beastie Boys, “Make Some Noise,” Bruno Mars, “Grenade,” Adele, “Rolling in the Deep,” Tyler, The Creator, “Yonkers,” and Katy Perry, “Firework.”

The big show airs live August 28 on MTV at 9 p.m. ET with the host not being known at this time, as reported by Entertainment Weekly.

By the way, since all the other blogs posted pictures of Katy Perry since she leads the nominations, I thought I would post a picture of Rihanna, for kicks.
