List of 2014 VMA Nominees Will Get You Ready for a Fun Show Come August

The raunchiest awards show is returning soon! Further proof? You can now see the full nominee list for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, courtesy of the network itself. Oh, the VMAs — the award show where debauchery runs rampant and GIFs are born the next morning. It's the awards show that has been notorious for moments like Britney Spears' and her snake-dancing and that tongue-wagging from the one and only Miley Cyrus. Every year, it's like, what crazy fun will happen this time? Who will be immortalized in meme-form the next morning?

But those crazy moments can't happen without a nominee list, right? Unsurprisingly, Beyonce leads the list of nominees with eight nominations. Eminem and Iggy Azalea are right behind her, with seven nominations each. Other stars with multiple noms include Jay Z, Ariana Grande (surely she's not having, an, ahem, problem with that), Pharrell Williams (he's so happy! Okay, okay, I'll stop), Lorde, and last year's twerking queen of notoriety, Cyrus. There's not one for Robin Thicke, though. ANYONE SURPRISED?

You can see who takes home the gold statuette when the VMAs air on August 24. We shall see who ignites this year's controversy on that fateful Sunday in August...

But for now, check out the list of nominees below:
