Aaaaand here we are again: It's almost time for music's most ridiculous awards show, and its nominations were just announced. 

Beyonce leads the pack of MTV Video Music Awards nominations with eight nods thanks to her self-titled visual album that came packed with 17 music videos. (We're actually a little surprised Bey didn't snatch more nominations for having so many stunning visuals.) "Pretty Hurts" picked up four, including Best Video With a Social Message and Best Direction, while "Partition" and "Drunk in Love" grabbed two apiece, the latter being up for Video of the Year.

Superstar rappers Iggy Azalea and Eminem are just behind Bey with seven nominations each. Iggy's "Fancy" grabbed four, including Video of the Year, while her Ariana Grande collab "Problem" vid picked up three. Em saw three of his new vids get recognized including three noms for "The Monster" featuring Rihanna, three for "Rap G-d" and one for "Berzerk."

Meanwhile, it's a heated battle for Video of the Year with "Fancy" and "Drunk in Love" up against Pharrell's "Happy," Sia's "Chandelier" and Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball."
