MTV has removed Best Female and Best Male Video categories from the VMAs, now being changed to one single Artist of the Year category to build "on the critical acclaim of the non-gendered categories at the 2017 'MTV Movies & TV Awards", according to their press release. But just as notable as the names up for awards this year is what those awards are named - in particular the VMAs' newly rebranded social awareness category.

The MTV Video Music Awards have announced the next batch of potential Moonmen owners.

Tied for second with five nominations are Katy Perry for her sci-fi amusement park fantasy "Chained to the Rhythm" and The Weeknd for his star-studded "Reminder". Another nod for the artist will also place him in the race for one of the VMAs' most desired trophy.

As well as his Artist Of The Year nomination, Kendrick's elaborate 'HUMBLE.' video has been honoured in the Best Hip Hop Video, Best Cinematography, Best Direction, Best Art Direction, Best Visual Effects and Best Choreography categories.
