"So disappointed that Katy Perry didn’t got nominated, literally worst nominations ever," another person tweeted.
"If you don't think BLACKPINK's "KILL THIS LOVE" Music Video is the best, then you're definitely lying to yourself. Or that you don't have eyes or taste," someone else commented, adding, "498M+ views in just 109 days."
also not nominating the biggest artist right now for these awards just shows how little you care about their talent and hard work. BTS exceeded all expectations for this music industry and that’s never gonna stop pic.twitter.com/mzU672zpA2— 𝘉𝘢𝘣𝘢👑✨ (@royalyminjoon) July 23, 2019
"So more trash songs in nominations, I can’t... if this real top list.. I can’t... I will support Gaga and Taylor, but our show is cancelled for me," one other person said.
"I am SUPER disappointed in the VMAs. Nicki has a good form, MEGATRON, Queen (as an album) and much more to be nominated, even herself as a better artist, but no, the vmas prefer not to give her any nomination. Totally disappointed, with my heart broken," a fifth commenter offered.
.@ArianaGrande is the most-nominated artist at this year’s #VMAs with 10 noms to her name! Ari’s had a long history with us, and we’re throwing it back to our 2016 @VMAs interview where she talked to us about #DangerousWoman, performing at the show, and working with @NICKIMINAJ pic.twitter.com/0DucSzuqDz— MTV NEWS (@MTVNEWS) July 23, 2019
