Chance and Common are both nominated for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics, Chance for a Run-D.M.C. parody he did on Saturday Night Live and Common for the single “Letter to the Free.”

White is up for a new category, Outstanding Music Direction, while Snoop Dogg is nominated for Outstanding Host For a Reality or Reality-Competition Program for his VH1 potluck dinner party with Martha Stewart.
