Taylor Swift Scores The Most  2015 MTV VMA Nominations

Come on, MTV. This isn't even fair!

Just after Miley Cyrus announced that she'll be hosting the festivities, voting is now open for this year's Video Music Awards -- and it's going to be impossible to make us choose between all these amazing nominees. Unsurprisingly, Taylor Swift and Beyonce are up for pretty much all the awards, while Ed Sheeran and Kendrick Lamar also find themselves among this year's top-nominated artists.

WATCH: The One Taylor Swift Video That Didn't Get Nominated

All four stars will face off in the ceremony's top Video of the Year category, along with Mark Ronson's and Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk," though Lamar could have the edge here. He's nominated for his own solo video, "Alright," as well as Swift's buzzy "Bad Blood."

Interestingly, Sheeran's ballroom dance-centric "Thinking Out Loud" video has scored him a slot in a handful of categories, but it's "Don't" that is represented in the Best Choreography category. Don't worry, Ed, we still think your moves are Moonman-worthy!

WATCH: Only ET Was With Ed On the 'Thinking Out Loud' Set!

Who will bring home the hardware this year? Find out when the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards air live on Sunday, August 30, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

See the full list of nominees below. Who will you be voting for? More importantly, who do you think Taylor is voting for in the Video of the Year category – herself, or her besties?!
