Lady GaGa dominates this year's nominations list of 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. The "Poker Face" hitmaker is vying in 13 categories, including the top honor Video of the Year. This makes her break the MTV record by becoming the singer with the most nominations in a single year.

Calling the event Video Monster Awards, GaGa tweeted after learning her domination, "13 VMA noms lilmonsters. Breakin records+breakin rules. I love you, you Bad Kids are a part of me. PAWS UP!" She additionally issued a statement, "I'm so honored for all the little monsters and self-professed freaks of the universe, to have more VMA nominations in a single year than any artist in MTV history."

"Ironically, I'm even more proud it's an unlucky number: 13. A long time ago, the world told me and my little monsters we would never be heard. Together we changed the rules. God put me on Earth for three reasons: to make loud music, gay videos and cause a damn raucous. Thank you, MTV!"

Following GaGa's domination is Eminem. The rap mogul scores eight nods, including Video of the Year where he is facing off GaGa, Florence and the Machine, B.o.B and 30 Seconds to Mars. Commenting on his multiple bids which are topped by GaGa, he jokingly said, "Apparently, MTV doesn't care that I have two massive stadium shows on the other side of the country the day after the VMAs. F me, right?!?! I mean, I'll be there, but don't expect me to be nice about it."

The other musicians who have more than one chance to win a coveted trophy at the prize-giving event include Beyonce Knowles, Jay-Z, Katy Perry, Usher, Drake, Jason Derulo, Muse, Pink and Ke$ha. The award which will be given to this year's best newcomer is to be handed either to Ke$ha, Derulo, Nicki Minaj, Broken Bells or Justin Bieber.

This show hasn't been relevant in years. I don't know why a network that barely shows music videos anymore has an award show devoted to them. :unsure:

Sad thing is, once upon a time, in the 80s to the mid-90s, this show used to be an event for young people, not so much anymore.

Good exposure for Florence and the Machine though.

Why is that horrid Video Phone video nominated for anything?

LOL, yeah I felt it was lame. Hype Williams still has clout I guess.

VEVO/YouTube is the platform really where awards celebrating music videos should be hosted.... that's where I watch my videos now.

Really? My Facebook feed blows up like an atomic bomb when the VMAs air, and most of my friends are between the ages of 18 and 25.

There really is no need for a music video TV channel anymore, especially one targeted at teens and twentysomethings. YouTube's taken over the market completely, but MTV.com is still filled to the gills with music and music-related content. Most people young people wouldn't sit in front of the computer to watch an entire awards show, so airing them on MTV is perfect.

If MTV and Vevo joined together, there'd be assloads of cash to be made.

It seems like over the past 10 or so years, the only time people talk about it is if some crap like Taylor/Kanye happens or Britney's craptastic performance from 2006. There was a time music videos had more pop cultural impact or the actual performances at the award show itself, which really isn't the case anymore. I guess the music industry itself is partly to blame for that too.

Even before the advent of YoutTube and streaming videos online, MTV/VH1 gave up years ago. :lol:

When is the cutoff date for video eligiblity? I find it hard to believe that Eminem's just happens to be nominated when his crap came out not more then two or three months ago when I'm sure other male artist's had better video's. It would be nice if they didn't keep nominating so many rap/r & b videos.

Lady Gaga's videos are very interesting and are always talked about. They aren't very good but at least they illicit some sort of reaction. It's a step in the right direction.. I just wish they could go back to the way video's were made in the 80's and 90's.. where there was a storyline to the video (i.e. a mini movie musical).
