Eminem, Missy Elliott and P.O.D. scored six nominations each, leading the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards nomination list Monday.

Eminem's "Without Me" nabbed a nomination for video of the year, male video, rap video, viewer's choice and editing, while Elliott's "One Minute Man" earned nominations in the hip-hop, direction, special effects, art direction, editing and cinematography categories. P.O.D.'s six nominations were split between two videos, "Alive" and "Youth of the Nation," according to MTV.com.

Elliot's nominations, however, are mostly on the technical side, leaving P.O.D.'s "Alive" and Eminem's "Without Me" to duke it out for best video, along with 'N Sync's "Gone," Linkin Park's "In the End," the White Stripes' "Fell in Love with a Girl" and Nas' "One Mic."

Both Eminem and P.O.D. are also up for the viewer's choice award.

Shakira's "Whenever, Wherever" and the White Stripes' "Fell in Love with a Girl" followed the list of multiple-nomination earners with four nods apiece.

Taking three nods each were Britney Spears for "I'm a Slave 4 U," Linkin Park for "In the End," Pink for "Get the Party Started," Elton John for "This Train Don't Stop There Anymore" and Ashanti for "Foolish."

'N Sync also earned three nominations, one for "Gone" and two for "Girlfriend" (with Nelly), as did Michelle Branch--two for "All You Wanted" and one for "Everywhere"--and Usher--one for "U Don't Have to Call" and two for "U Got It Bad."

The 2002 MTV Video Music Awards will be held at Radio City Music Hall Aug. 29, to be hosted by Saturday Night Live's Jimmy Fallon. To select nominees, MTV sent some 500 ballots to viewers, record label staffers, music journalists and video producers.
