vmas-2014-nominations-beyonce-eminem-miley-cyrus.jpgBeyonce is more than just Queen Bey; she's also queen of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards nominees. The contenders for the VMAs were announced on Thursday (July 17), and Mrs. Carter led the pack with eight nominations.

Following behind were Eminem and Iggy Azalea, both of whom earned seven nominations. Miley Cyrus' toned down 2014 translated into less of a VMAs presence, as she was only nominated for two awards: Video of the Year and Best Direction for "Wrecking Ball."

The 2014 VMAs will take place on Sun. Aug. 24 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on MTV. Usher, Ariana Grande and 5 Seconds of Summer are slated to perform. Here's the full list of nominees.
