MTV has announced the nominees for the 2010 Video Music Awards, with Lady Gaga unsurprisingly leading the race with a record 13 nominations (16 if you include the nods for her collaboration with Beyoncé, 'Video Phone'), including Best Female Video and two nods for the coveted Video of the Year.

While the usual suspects -- Beyoncé, Usher, Jay Z, and Eminem -- are well represented among the nominees, indier fair like Florence + the Machine and 30 Seconds to Mars also got some love from MTV. Our BFF, Justin Bieber, is up for Best New Artist, a category up for public vote, so you just know he's a lock. Biggest snub? Rihanna, who earned just one nomination for the editing of her 'Rude Boy' video. Check out the full list after the jump.
