2019 VMA's nominees, including new category: Best K-Pop

The 2019 VMA's nominations have been announced and there's a brand new Best K-Pop category.

Some say it's a great opportunity to give exposure to kpop by having its own category, most say it separates kpop groups (mainly BTS) so they don't compete with western bands and actually win. Additional to Best Kpop, BTS' Boy With Luv is nominated for Best Collaboration, Best Art Direction and Best Choreography.

VMA's will air next Monday (lol), August 26.

Omona, what do you think? Will any of them show up? Why is TXT there and not Twice? Who still cares about the VMAs?

Let’s be real, all the nominations outside of the category are also mainstream. They don’t really count views of achievements when it comes to nominations, a good example of that is Despacito lol. Award shows are always a joke in every country tbh

I agree with this. Award shows have always been a popularity contest which makes sense. You can't vote for the best if you haven't heard of them. Top 40 everything is how it goes.
