MTV announced the nominations for the 2017 Video Music Awards on Tuesday via Instagram. A scrutiny of the list of nominees conducted by vigil 360 indicates that rapper Kendrick Lamar leads the pack with the most nominations for his video "Humble."


He is closely followed byKaty Perry and The Weeknd tied in second place with five nominations each.

In keeping with the changes that MTV instituted for the MTV Movie & TV Awards, the gendered categories of Best Female Video and Best Male Video were replaced by a more general award, Artist of the Year. One new award was also added: "Best Fight Against the System."
