Olivia Receives 5 MTV VMA Nominations

Wednesday, Aug 11, 2021

The nominations for the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards have been revealed. Several artists scored five nods apiece, including first-time contender Olivia Rodrigo.

Fans can vote for the winners across 14 gender-neutral categories from now through Friday, Sept. 3. Voting for best new artist will remain active into the awards show on Sunday, Sept. 12, with nominations for social categories including “Best Group” and “Song of the Summer” announced at a later date.

The 2021 MTV Video Music Awards are set to air live from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, which served as the site of the VMAs in 2013, at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The arena was originally set to be the site of the 2020 edition of the music awards show. But adjustments due to the COVID-19 pandemic forced the team behind the production to pivot to a show that took place in various locations across New York City.
