The 2010 MTV VMA nominees have finally been released, and it should come as no surprise that Lady Gaga tops the list with 13 nominations in total. The powerhouse performer is all about crushing records on the music charts and in the social networking world! Trailing behind Gaga with eight nominations is Eminem, including “Best Male Video,” and “Video of the Year” for his hit "Not Afraid.”

Lady Gaga's thirteen nods mark two records for the singer — the most nominations ever for an artist in a single VMA year, and she's the first female artist nominated for two different videos in the “Video of the Year” category for “Bad Romance” and “Telephone” featuring Beyoncé.
