The YouTube Music Award Nominations Are Here!

Mark your calendars for November 3, y'all. The YouTube Music Awards are coming, and it needs your help. Since there is no academy choosing who goes home with a pretty little award, it's all up to you, the viewer. The process is easy — almost too easy, really: Search YTMA on YouTube, share your faves, and you're done.
Oh, and think twice before casting this off as any run-of-the-mill awards show. YouTube has snagged Spike Jonze, Jason Schwartzman, and Reggie Watts to head the whole thing. Plus, Lady Gaga, Eminem, M.I.A., Avicii, Arcade Fire, and more will be real-timing music videos, in one take, right before your eyes. Try and get the Grammys to top that.
Check out the nominees below, go vote, and set your early alarms for the 3rd, beginning at 5 a.m. EST. Do it for Jason Schwartzman's puppy. Seriously.
