Craig David, Destiny's Child, Eminem also garner multiple nods.

Gorillaz, Limp Bizkit, U2 and Craig David lead the list of nominees for the MTV Europe Music Awards, scheduled for November 8 in Frankfurt, Germany.

Blur’s Damon Albarn and his cartoon side project are up for six awards: Best Group, Best New Act, Best Dance Act, Best U.K. Act, Best Song (for “Clint Eastwood”) and the new Web Award for best Web site.

Limp Bizkit and U2 are each nominated for the same four trophies: Best Group, Best Album, Best Rock Act and the Web Award. Craig David is up for Best Male Act, Best New Act, Best R&B Act and Best U.K. Act.

The nominees were announced Tuesday (September 25) at London’s Mayfair Club.
The MTV Europe Music Awards, which will air live on MTV U.K. and Ireland, will
feature performances from Destiny’s Child, Dido and Janet Jackson. Others
will be announced in the coming weeks.

Winners for all of the awards, with the exception of Best Video, are determined by online
voting at www.mtveurope.com. Best Video is chosen by MTV Europe. Last year’s
winner was Moby’s “Natural Blues.”

Other acts with multiple nominations this year are Destiny’s Child, Eminem and Dido, who have all garnered three nods each. Slim Shady received a fourth nomination with his group D12, which he is competing against for Best Hip-Hop Act. And while not officially nominated for “Stan,” Dido appears on Eminem’s track that is up for Best Song.
