Lady Gaga scooped nine nominations for this August’s MTV Video Music Awards, and no one is more excited about it than the lady herself.

Gaga and Ariana Grande lead the contest with nine nods, including a co-nomination for video of the year for their mega-collab “Rain on Me.”

“I am so grateful and so blessed to have 9 #VMAs nominations this year for my album Chromatica, for Rain On Me, and other performances I’ve given,” Gaga tweets.

“This is such a difficult time for people all over the world, I really honor how lucky I am to have a day like today.”

Gaga felt so loved up, she continued: “I hope you all will celebrate yourselves in this moment, everyone should be nominated for an award right now. For bravery, for courage, for the strong human spirit. God bless you and I love you thank you for this gift today.”

Chromatica is already a winner. It blasted to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 following its release May 29, for Gaga’s sixth leader on the chart.

The new album was originally slated for an April 10 release, but was pushed back due to the health crisis.

The 2020 MTV Video Music Awards 2020 will air on Sunday, Aug. 30 at 8:00 p.m. ET, live from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

Fans can now vote across 15 categories at this link. Voting closes Aug. 23, though VMAs followers can cast their votes for the PUSH best new artist category right up to showtime.
