2014-mtv-vma-nominations-main

Get ready to play Katy Perry’s female empowerment anthem, "Roar."

If the nominations list is any indicator, the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards are going to be the year of the female domination. Beyoncé remains the center of the world’s attention, leading the VMA trophy count with eight nominations.

On her crystal-encrusted heels are Eminem and Australian rap newcomer Iggy Azalea, who are both vying for seven moonmen.

Pharrell Williams is the lone male facing off against a fierce line of estrogen-fueled competition for the night’s top honor, Video of the Year, which includes Iggy, Beyoncé, Miley, and Sia. All we can say to the "Happy" singer is good luck trying to take our favorite divas down!

Tune in to MTV on Sunday, August 24, at 9 p.m. ET to see who takes home the most moonmen!
