The nominations for the 2017 MTV EMAs are being unveiled, and there’s a slew of our favorite superstars who are up for awards in some big categories, including some from last year. While Taylor Swift is leading in the nomination count this year with a total of six, Kendrick Lamar is close behind with three nominations in the Best Artist, Best Video and Best Hip Hop.

Not only is the 2011 XXL Freshman in the running for winning a slew of awards, but other hip-hop stars such as DJ Khaled, Kyle, Eminem, Drake, Future and Post Malone are also up for awards in multiple categories.On the R&B side, Khalid and SZA also see nominations in different categories, and they both have a good chance of going home with an award or two.
