We may still have a few questions about this year's MTV Video Music Awards - like who's hosting the night of music - but at least we know everyone who's nominated! Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande are leading the pack of nominees with nine nods each thanks in large part to their instant club collaboration "Rain on Me," followed by Billie Eilish and The Weeknd with six nominations each. Not only does this year's list of nominees host two quarantine-specific categories (best music video from home and best quarantine performance) but it also has a couple of history-makers: Eilish is the first artist in VMA history to nab two video-of-the-year nominations while still in their teens and Grande is the first artist to be nominated for video of the year three years in a row since Beyoncé's run from 2014 to 2016, just to name a couple. Who will take home a "Moon Person" this year? Tune in on Aug. 30 to find out!
