Cardi B Receives 10 Nominations at This Year’s VMAs
We’re still in the thick of Bardi Season, with the rapper bagging 10 nominations at this 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, including Video of the Year and Song of the Year (both for her feature on Bruno Mars’ “Finesse”). Jay-Z and Beyoncé received eight nods apiece for their collaborative Everything Is Love project, while Childish Gambino, Drake and Ariana Grande also received multiple nominations.
The VMAs now have like 10 nominees per category, which cheapens the awards in my opinion, but ah well. It’s clear that MTV has given up on making the show as prestigious as it once was and are now fully committed to the Teen Choice approach (complete with online voting). You can see the full list of nominees and vote for videos here.
The 2018 MTV Video Music Awards will air live on August 20 at 9pm ET on MTV.
