All hail Queen Bey: She's the leading nominee at this year's MTV Video Music Awards.


MTV announced Thursday that Beyonce is up for eight moonman trophies, including video of the year for "Drunk in Love." Rappers Iggy Azalea and Eminem are nominated for seven awards each.


Pharrell is the only male artist nominated for the top prize. Along with Beyonce, his "Happy" will compete with Azalea's "Fancy," Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" and Sia's "Chandelier" for video of the year.


Azalea is nominated twice for best pop video and female video, thanks to her other hit, the Ariana Grande-led smash "Problem."
