The 2019 VMA nominations have officially been announced, and while the BTS ARMY is celebrating the fact that BTS received four nominations, they also feel that the guys deserved way more, and honestly, I totally agree. I mean, BTS is the biggest boyband in the world right now and they’re breaking countless records left and right. One of the most notable records they’ve broken this year was for their "Boy With Luv" music video, which reached 74.6 million views on YouTube in 24 hours — the biggest YouTube debut in history. With an achievement like that, fans think BTS’ "Boy With Luv" music video deserved nominations in the main VMA categories, and that BTS themselves should have been nominated for Artist of the Year. The tweets about BTS’ 2019 VMA nomination snubs show fans think the creation of a brand new category for K-Pop is an effort to increase voting engagement without giving the boys a chance in major categories they deserve a spot in.
The four awards BTS is nominated for are Best Collaboration, Best K-Pop, Best Art Direction, and Best Choreography. As I said, fans are thankful that BTS finally received some VMA nominations, because last year, the guys didn’t receive any, despite also breaking YouTube records for both their "Idol" and "Fake Love" music videos. With that said, fans feel that instead of creating an entirely new category for K-Pop in order to acknowledge BTS’ achievements, the show should have nominated BTS for Video of the Year since they’ve rightfully earned their spot against some of the biggest names in music like Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, and Billie Eilish.
