Earlier this year, MTV augmented their VMAs and Movie Awards with the O Music Awards, which sought to reward musicians, fans, and digital gurus for their greatness in the virtual realm. Apparently it went well, because O Music Awards 2 are coming back for another round of prizes on October 31.

Once again, the nominees in categories like Most Outrageous Tweet and Too Much A– For TV are a mix of mainstream names (Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry), fringe favorites (Bjork, Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips), and envelope-pushing left-field nods (SoundCloud CEO Alexander Ljung is nominated for Best Music NILF, with the “N” standing for “Nerd” in that particular entry).
