The full list of nominees have been unveiled for this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Irish singer-songwriter Hozier is nominated in two categories. Bray’s answer to Jeff Buckley is up for Best Rock Video and Best Direction for his chart topping song ‘Take Me To Church’.

‘Take Me To Church’ has gained non-stop momentum since its initial release. It’s been download 16 million times on iTunes, streamed 10 million times a week and Hozier is one of the top played artists on Spotify.

The song has been adopted by anti-discrimination groups across the world. His self-titled debut album was released in September 2014, beating U2′s LP Songs Of Innocence to the number 1 spot in Ireland, as well as going platinum in America and Canada.

It is strange though that ‘Take Me To Church’ was not included in the Best Video With A Social Message category (you can also query the absence of Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Alright’ video too). If anyone can explain why, i think we’d all like to hear the explanation.

The MTV Video Music Awards take place on August 30th at 9 p.m.
