    She’s in tough against the always combative Kanye and those crazy Canucks, Drake and Justin. With the dawn of auto-tuning music has finally come of age; whatever did people listen to before???

    So over Beyonce. NEXT!

    I don’t understand; David Bowie’s striking and surreal videos for the BLACKSTAR project nabbed nominations for Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Direction, and Best Editing…but not Best Video???
