Missy works MTV for 8 noms

Timberlake's 7, Cash's 6 follow, vie for top VMA honors

See nomineesClearly, MTV believes Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliot knows how to work it.

Elliot topped channel’s Video Music Awards nominations, with eight for “Work It,” in categories including best female, direction and video of the year. Last year, Elliot nabbed six Video Music Award nominations, but was shut out in each category.

Justin Timberlake was in close pursuit with seven noms for “Cry Me a River” and “Rock Your Body.” Six nods went to country music legend Johnny Cash his musicvid “Hurt.”

“The fact that the top nominees are Missy, Justin and the legendary Johnny Cash further solidifies the VMAs as the biggest cultural and musical train wreck on the tube — and I mean that in a good way,” said Van Toffler, prexy of MTV and MTV2.

Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River,” Cash and Elliot will all battle for the best video award, alongside 50 Cent’s “In Da Club,” and “Lose Yourself” by Marshall “Eminem” Mathers.

Both 50 Cent and Eminem earned five noms. Mathers was last year’s big winner, going home with four moon men statuettes.

Other multiple nominees include four for Beyonce with Jay Z (“Crazy in Love”) and Queens of the Stone Age (“Go With the Flow,” and “No One Knows”).”American Idol” Kelly Clarkson picked up three noms for “Miss Independent,” including best new artist.

Awards will be broadcast live from Radio City on Aug. 28. Christina Aguilera and Coldplay, both multiple nominees, will perform during the kudocast, now in its 20th year.

Ballots were sent out to approximately 500 viewers and industryites to select the nominees in a range of categories. Salli Frattini and Dave Sirulnick will exec produce kudocast. Alex Coletti will produce and Beth McCarthy-Miller will direct.

With 42 channels worldwide, cabler reaches 382.1 million households.

And the nominees are . . .
