Billy Talent, k-os lead MMVA 2005 Nominees

Published: 2005-05-30
There's certainly a lot of love for screamo act Billy Talent over at MuchMusic headquarters. The Ontario quintet has a massive number of MuchMusic Video Awards 2005 nominations, qualifying in what seems like every category they're eligible for (that'd be nine). You also couldn't accuse Much of giving the cold shoulder to k-os, who has roped in an equal number of nods, with the two acts dominating the Best Video and Best Director categories.

Undeniably a blowout year for Montreal's the Arcade Fire, the indie rockers are even pushing their way into MuchMusic territory. "Rebellion (Lies)" has been nominated for Best Independent Video alongside Aleixsonfire's "Accidents" and Death From Above 1979's "Romantic Rights."

Known for being more like a huge outdoor party than a typical awards show, the MMVAs usually pleases across the board with its range of performers. Confirmed so far for the June 19th show are the likes of Black Eyed Peas, the Killers, and Ashlee Simpson, as well as the frontrunners, Billy Talent and k-os.
