Full Nomination List For Sunday’s 2014 MTV Video Music Awards:

Beyonce has a leading eight nominations heading into Sunday’s presentation of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, including nods for video of the year, best female video, best choreography and best collaboration for her work with husband Jay Z.

Beyonce is nominated along with Jay Z for video of the year for their collaboration on “Drunk in Love.” Also nominated are Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX for “Fancy,” Miley Cyrus for “Wrecking Ball,” Pharrell Williams for “Happy” and Sia for “Chandelier.”

Iggy Azalea and Eminem each have seven VMA nominations. The awards will be presented at the Forum in Inglewood.

Iggy Azalea and Beyonce will battle for best female video with Lorde for “Royals,” Ariana Grande — in collaboration with Iggy Azalea — for “Problem” and Katy Perry featuring Juicy J for “Dark Horse.”

Eminem’s collaboration with Rihanna on “The Monster” is nominated for best male video, along with Pharrell Williams’ “Happy,” John Legend for “All of Me,” Ed Sheeran featuring Pharrell for “Sing” and Sam Smith for “Stay with Me.”

Usher, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, Maroon 5, Taylor Swift, Sam Smith and 5 Seconds of Summer are among the acts expected to perform at the show.

Last year’s VMA ceremony earned some notoriety for some borderline raunchy content, highlighted by a performance featuring a scantily clad Miley Cyrus “twerking” with Robin Thicke. In advance of this year’s event, the Parents Television Council sent MTV a letter asking that if the are not toned down, the show should be given a TV-MA rating, instead of the TV-14 rating it had last year.
