MTV Video Music Award Nominees Announced

Just in time to celebrate the network's landmark 25th birthday, MTV has announced the nominees for their 2006 Video Music Awards (VMAs).

You can view nominated videos, vote for your favorites, and most importantly for librarians with music purchasing authority, peruse the nominated artists list for gaps in your collection.
