The 2010 MTV Video Music Awards Nominations were announced today and, no surprise, Lady Gaga and Eminem dominated the honors.  The pop superstars are nominated for "Telephone" (featuring Beyonce), "Bad Romance" and "Not Afraid" respectively.  And, no, that's not a misprint.  Gaga has two videos in the top category. 

Other multiple nominees include B.o.B, 30 Seconds to Mars, Beyonce, Ke$ha, Jay-Z and Alicia Keys, Usher, Pink, Katy Perry and MGMT. 

The 2010 MTV Video Music Awards will be handed out on Sept. 12, 2010 at 9 PM ET from the Gibson Ampitheatre in Universal City, CA.  No host has been announced as of yet for the 27th installment of the venerable MTV event.

Look for continuing coverage of the VMAs on HitFix.  A complete list of this year's nominees are listed below.
