Swifties are not impressed...

Taylor Swift has a long and fruitful history with the MTV VMAs. Since 2008 the 'Delicate' hitmaker has been nominated for an incredible 17 awards at the ceremony and won 7 of them including the prestigious Video of the Year honour for her Kendrick Lamar collaboration 'Bad Blood' in 2015. She even debuted her record-breaking 'Look What You Made Me Do' music video in last year's show.

Last night MTV announced all of the nominees for the 2018 VMAs and Swifties around the world were shocked to learn that Taylor hadn't received any of the major nominations. 'Look What You Made Me Do' made history when it came out as the most viewed video in 24 hours on YouTube (43 million views) and yet it's only been nominated in technical categories.

Watch the 'Look What You Made Me Do' video here:

To be honest, each of this year's Video of the Year nominees are incredible ('APESHIT', 'Finesse', 'God's Plan', 'Havana', 'No Tears Left to Cry', 'This Is America') but it's still shocking to see a star of Taylor Swift's stature not receive any of the main nominations for one of her most successful videos to date.

This isn't the first time that the VMAs have snubbed a record breaking video though. In 2015, 'Anaconda' missed out on a Video of the Year nomination, despite breaking Vevo's 24 hour record and sparking its own sea of viral memes. Nicki Minaj even called out the network for not nominating her.

Unsurprisingly Taylor Swift fans are outraged by Taylor's lack of nominations at this year's ceremony and have since taken to Twitter to express how upset they are.

Some fans think that it had all the ingredients of a Video of the Year.

It is up there with her best work.

Others are angry because Taylor literally premiered the video at the VMAs.

The shade of it all.

A couple of Swifties have noticed that Taylor hasn't received many award nominations this year in general.

It's not just the VMAs who are ignoring her.

A few people think that it's more deserving than other Video of the Year nominees.

Okay but 'Finesse' is a masterpiece.

Even those who didn't like 'Look What You Made Me Do' are surprised that the video wasn't nominated.

It doesn't add up.

Ultimately the lack of nominations doesn't take anything away from the video.

Awards shouldn't dictate what we like.

For Taylor fans there's no question what the Video of the Year is.
