Candy Shop is up for Male Video of the Year, that is absolutely ridiculous, as is Eminem's Just Lose It for Rap Video of the Year. Too bad Switch didn't get nominated, if Party Starter had been the first single, I bet it would have garnered some nominations.

Wow, I can't believe Nas got nominated for best hip-hop video, MTV hardly played that video! I'm surprised LL's "Headsprung" or "Hush" weren't nominated, those were getting a lot of airplay.

some good vids in there. No chance that Switch would have got in realistically. Its a solid vid but nothing that original or groundbreaking to be up for an award.

Yeah, I forgot to mention that, I was happy to see Nas in their for Best Hip-Hop video, especially since they barely played it. That was one good nomination, amongst a lot of bad ones.
