"You Need to Calm Down" also scored a nod in a brand-new category this year, Video for Good. Meanwhile, Billie Eilish came in third with nine nods, while Lil Nas X walked away with eight; both of them are up for Best New Artist, as well as Video of the Year: Eilish for "Bad Guy," Lil Nas X for--what else?--"Old Town Road."
