Brandy Receives MTV Video Award Nomination; Bowie Videos Up in Four Craft Categories

by VVN Music

Beyonce and Adele lead all nominees for the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards.

Beyonce has eleven nominations over sixteen categories for both performance and the craft end of the video making process. Adele has 8 while Drake comes in with 6, Ariana Grande with 5 and Rihanna with 4.

Only one veteran artist was nominated in the performance categories and it was in a supporting role. Brandy is up for Best Electronic Video for The Girl is Mine by 99 Souls Featuring Destiny's Child & Brandy.

One veteran artist did very well in the professional/craft categories even though he himself was not named. David Bowie's videos are nominated in four categories with Blackstar up for Art Direction and Lazarus nominated for Direction, Cinematography and Editing. If there is a win in any of the categories, the award will actually go to the craftsperson.

A Missy Elliott video, WTF (Where They From) is also up for Choreography.

The MTV Video Music Awards will be give out on August 28 at Madison Square Garden in New York.
