    Hopefully Madonna's God Control will be nominated/win the category for Best Video with Social Message

    IMO this is Madonna's first music video in more than a decade that deserves at least 1 VMA nomination.

    - Best Video With A Message
    - Best Cinematography
    - Best Directon

    Are the categories where a nomination seems to be appropiate. I'm not expecting anything from the VMAs though, they will focus on Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Jonas Brothers, Camila Cabello, and stuff like that instead.
    Britney Spears . Michael Jackson . Madonna . Metallica . Radiohead . Led Zeppelin . Oasis . Beyoncι . Soda Stereo

    They should nominate Madonna for God Control, but they will be predictable and nominate the likes of Ariana, Taylor, Shawn, Cardi and how they are all called...

    They will nominate the biggest hits again instead of focussing on great music videos.. that's why "God's Control" will not get a trophy.. Maybe Madonna will get some kind of icon/legend award.

    I'm guessing Old Town Road will be in there. And probably Billie Eilish will get some noms.

    Maybe 365 or Earth?

    LOL. It's like they went and checked YT top 10 most watched videos and made a list out of that. Shame they never actually nominate truly great videos.

    I think Taylor is getting the Vanguard, I mean look at her nominations - "You Need to Calm Down" for Song of the Year among all those huge hits feels so out of place.

    She's also launching album at the same time. Pretty obvious she's gonna sweep despite song being nonevent and both critically and cosmetically disappointment.

    Awards are not genuine anymore, everything's planned and signed in advance.

    These awards are a huge joke. Nice to see Lenny nominated but that's it mostly.

    No nomination for Madonna and some others.

    It just shows how irrelevant those awards are. they don't reward artistry, just popularity. A total travesty.

    Since when was the VMAs not about popularity? The fact that they caved in by forming a Best KPOP video after being dragged by the rabid and toxic KPOP fans for excluding BTS for many years now says it all. They also tried to woo the Latin community by creating the Best Latin Video after seeing that Latin American music videos had billions of views (especially when "Despacito" exploded) compared to hip-hop videos. Well, at least, there is diversity now.

    I think the Vanguard is between Lady Gaga and Taylor, Taylor has the upper hand though since she is releasing her album next month and she is older than Gaga in the industry.

    I love Madonna but I didn't expect her to be there. "God Control" could have been nominated but it needed a stronger video, it was too "American Life" campy looking. Also, her controversial appearance last year put the VMAs in a bad light (which was the VMAs fault and not Madonna's). A more serious image would have really helped her but she is very stubborn to conform to that.

    I'm just glad they finally resurrected Best R&B Video, that award was last given 13 years ago, when Britney presented it to Beyoncι.

    I wonder why they snubbed Miley and Katy? I guess since the songs underperformed, they didn't bother recognizing it.
