Jack U, Flying Lotus and Chet Faker among 2015 MTV Video Music Awards nominees
Every year, the impending end of summer is signaled by the announcement of MTV’s Video Music Awards nominations which were announced this morning via the Beats 1 “Charts” show on Apple Music. Even though there doesn’t seem to be an MTV Clubland category for electronic artists, some of the scene’s most creative acts are included in this year’s nominees.
Skrillex, Diplo and Justin Bieber’s platinum-selling “Where Are U Now” scored three nominations for Best Art Direction, Best Editing and Best Visual Effects. Meanwhile Flying Lotus is nominated for Best Cinematography and Best Choreography for “Never Catch Me” alongside Kendrick Lamar, the latter category seeing him face off against indie electronic producer Chet Faker’s “Gold.”
Check out the full list of nominations here.
The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards will be hosted by Miley Cyrus and will air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles at 9pm ET on Sunday, August 30, 2015.
