With five nominations, Beyoncé is leading this year's VO5 NME Awards with five nods. U.S. President-elect Donald Trump also snagged a nomination—for Villain of the Year.

Queen Bey is up for Best Album for Lemonade, Hero of the Year, Best International Female, Best Music Video for "Formation" and Moment of the Year for the surprise release of her sixth studio album last April.

French singer Christine and the Queens, The 1975, Bastille and Mercury Music Prize-winning grime artist Skepta all received four nominations.

The NME Awards, which span politics and culture, are voted for by the readers of NME magazine.

After a year of political turbulence—the U.S. presidential election and the U.K.'s Brexit vote— Donald Trump, former U.K. prime minister David Cameron and Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage are all shortlisted for the Villain of the Year prize. Trump won the award last year.
