The 2014 MTV VMA nominees, and PCP’s picks.

You guys, it’s almost time once again for my third favourite award show of the year, the MTV VMAs. If for some reason you’re interested in my award show hierarchy, it goes like this:

  1. Academy Awards: The pinnacle of glamour and A-listers.
  2. Emmy Awards: I watch too much TV.
  3. MTV VMAs: The outfits, the controversy, the performances. The VMAs never fails to deliver (except for those years in between 2007-2013 when the only two memorable moments were “I’ma let you finish and the time Gaga hung herself on stage)
  4. Golden Globes: Sort of a B-List version of 1 and 2.
  5. Billboard Music Awards/Grammys/American Music Awards: Just whatever has the best performances that year, really.

Anyway, before we really get into the obsessive corners of my brain where you get to see just how much time I spend thinking about things like this, let’s run through the nominees and see who’s up for what this year.

VIDEO OF THE YEAR
Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX – “Fancy”
Beyoncé ft. JAY Z – “Drunk In Love”
Pharrell Williams – “Happy”
Sia – “Chandelier”
Miley Cyrus – “Wrecking Ball”

Britney Spears excited gif in the zone and out all night

Fancy to win everything, to be honest. That video is ***Flawless. Also, I definitely don’t want anything Uncle Terry has had his grubby paws on winning, so that knocks Wrecking Ball out of the running, Drunk in Love is just Bey and Jay chillin’ on a beach not doing much, and I actually don’t think I’ve seen the video for Happy but Pharrell’s hat has had enough attention this year. I’d be happy enough if Chandelier won but that’s really more because I’m a fan of Maddie from Dance Moms, rather than Sia.

BEST HIP HOP
Eminem – “Bezerk”
Drake ft. Majid Jordan – “Hold On (We’re Going Home)”
Childish Gambino – “3005″
Kanye West – “Black Skinhead”
Wiz Khalifa – “We Dem Boyz”

J Law dead loves it excited gif

Literally because I’m like, Amanda-Bynes-level obsessed with Drake’s album Nothing was the Same, it’s so, so, SO good, and I want it to win every-damn-thing.

BEST MALE
Pharrell Williams – “Happy”
John Legend – “All Of Me”
Ed Sheeran ft. Pharrell – “Sing”
Sam Smith – “Stay With Me”
Eminem ft. Rihanna – “Monster”

Me when that drum beat really kicks in toward the end of the song:

This GIF actually works incredibly well with the part of the song that I’m talking about if you line up RiRi’s yodel with J Law’s shimmy.

BEST FEMALE
Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX – “Fancy”
Beyoncé – “Partition”
Lorde – “Royals”

BEST POP

Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX – “Fancy”
Jason Derulo ft. 2 Chainz – “Talk Dirty”
Ariana Grande ft. Iggy Azalea – “Problem”
Avicii ft. Aloe Blacc – “Wake Me Up”

BEST ROCK
Imagine Dragons – “Demons”
Arctic Monkeys – “Do I Wanna Know”

MTV ARTIST TO WATCH

5 Seconds of Summer  -”She Looks So Perfect”
Charli XCX – “Boom Clap”

Ariana Grande ft. Iggy Azalea – “Problem”
Pitbull ft. Ke$ha – “Timber”
Chris Brown ft. Lil Wayne and Tyga – “Loyal”

Visual effects? I don’t know, I have no opinion on this.

 

To summarise: Beyoncé or Eminem and Rihanna should win everything that Iggy’s not nominated for.
