Giving a nod to gender equality, the MTV Video Music Awards has eliminated the male and female categories and replaced it with simply an artist category. The statue given out for the past 32 years has been an astronaut MTV called the Moonman – this year the statue undergoes a name change. Beginning with 2017, the statue will be known as the Moonperson.

MTV has added a new category to the list this year – Best Fight Against the System – an award given for the video that inspires fans to fight against injustice.

Kendrick Lamar leads the list of nominees with eight due to his song “Humble”. Host Katy Perry and Hip-Hop artist The Weeknd follow with five nominations each. Bruno Mars, Alessia Cara, Ed Sherran, Rihanna and Calvin Harris have also garnered multiple nominations.
