‘This list is s**t’

A few social media users reacted to the nominations list. “This year's MTV VMAs have nominated Seventeen in three categories. We need to vote consistently, we need to help each other secure wins for Seventeen. Maximize all of your accounts and let other carats know as well. The nomination is already an accomplishment, but WE NEED TO WIN”, said one K-pop fan as another posted, “Woke up to... Madonna’s 69th MTV VMAs nomination for BEST LONGFORM VIDEO!! Congratulations Madonna and everyone else who worked on this piece of art!!”
 
The next one claimed, “This list is s**t” as another posted, “Kendrick going to or should win everything! But Snoop And EM should get this Award or if they have one for best duo or feature definitely get that one!” And, one concluded, “The same all over again” when it came to best alternative rock artists.
