Iggy Azalea and Eminem are nominated for seven awards each.

Pharrell is the only male nominated for the top prize. Along with Beyonce, his hit song Happy will compete with Azalea's Fancy, Miley Cyrus' Wrecking Ball and Sia's Chandelier for video of the year.

Azalea is nominated twice for best pop video and female video, thanks to her other hit, the Ariana Grande-led smash Problem.
