And the MTV Nominees Are...

8/7/2007 3:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

MTV AwardsAh, the Music Video Awards ... the one time each year when MTV actually bothers to play videos.

MTV just released its list of 2007 nominees, and there are few surprises. Proving that what goes around comes around, Justin Timberlake and bootylicious Beyonce lead the VMA pack with seven nominations each. Also up for multiple nominations: Kanye West, Rihanna and rehabbing whiner, Amy Winehouse.

U2 and Green Day were nominated for Best Collaboration for "The Saints Are Coming," to benefit Hurricane Katrina victims. And Linkin Park -- remember them? -- picked up three nominations for Best Group, Director and Editing.

Biggest shocker? A Best Video nod for French electro duo Justice -- does the TRL tween set even know who the hell they are? Parlez vous Francais?

So is MTV going to showing music videos instead of it's usual lineup of stupid, mindless programs? Why does MTV even bother to recognize music videos anymore? What a joke that station has become. I can remember when I used to actually enjoy watching videos on MTV. Now? nothing but teenage porn and "shock"gimmicks.

What the hell TMZ??? LInkin PArk is freakin HOT!!! There CD Minutes to Midnight is doing extremely well on the Rock Charts. I know theydon't fall in your ranks of "Musicians" like Avril, Good Charolotte and Travis Barker but it's only cause they don't allow themselves to be like the retard celebs you guys actually write about. I know hard to imagine some "celebrity" like Linkin Park not showing up at the Ivy or Les Deux.

Linkin Park is the only thing worth crap on the nomination list. Let's face it everyone else is more famous for their "Celebrity-ism than their music. Now that I think about it, it's a damn shame they are grouped together with those other chumps.

Thanks for pissing me off today

"Parlez vous Francais?"
Justice maybe french, but the song is in english, and the video is really good, maybe you should have watched it first?
