J-Hope earned six solo nominations in the artist of the year, best male artist, best hip-hop and urban music and song of the year for “MORE” from Jack in the Box, as well as best collaboration for “Rush Hour” with Crush, which also earned a song of the year nomination. V and Jimin also netted solo noms in the best OST (original sound tracks) and song of the year categories — V for “Christmas Tree” (Our Beloved Summer) and Jimin alongside Ha Sung-woon for “With You” (Our Blues).

BLACKPINK, still fresh off the release of its second studio album Born Pink, netted a total of five nominations in the best female group, best dance performance female group and song of the year “Pink Venom,” as well as artist of the year and worldwide fans’ choice top 10.
