    So if Selena Gomez and THE SCENE are nominated for FEMALE video shouldn’t her band be females?????? Group video would have sufficed if there was that kind of category.

    These awards are gonna be so lame and dumb cause the fruity douche Justin Bieber is gonna win RME

    Why is Selena & her “bands'” video and Demi’s video nominated when their videos were released over a year ago?

  • Anonymous

    WTF Kelly Clarkson only got one nomination! LAME

    Thought Gotye would get way more nominations and fun. would get nominated for vid of the year cause their respective songs/videos were big this year.
    Also I think One Direction other video ‘One Thing’ could have got a nomination.

    *sigh* MTV is already a rock bottom shitty channel that’s been dead for years so idk why they pretend that they care about music when they hardly play music videos then again a majority of their music they praised and is played and aired when everyone is asleep is overrated crap

    Also good on one direction, proud of them.but wtf with the music industry’s nowadays. Same artists. If the dick head Justin Bieber
    (who called out drake bell for being a nobody cause he’s a delusional fame washed prick that thinks he’s the shit) wins over the better artists and one direction, I’m jetting off to another planet.
