The nominees have been announced - and Bruno Mars is at the top with eight nods at the American Music Awards, while The Chainsmokers, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Ed Sheeran and The Weeknd earned five apiece.

The 2017 American Music Awards will broadcast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, Nov. 19 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.

No women were in the running for Artist of the Year for the first time since the category took its current form in 2002.

Rihanna is up for Favorite Female Artist- Pop/Rock against Alessia Cara and Lady Gaga, while Drake and Bruno both received nominations in the Favorite Male Artist-Pop/Rock category as well. Mars will compete against The Chainsmokers, Drake, Lamar and Sheeran. Nominees for the new artist of the year are James Arthur, Niall Horan, Julia Michaels, Post Malone and Rae Sremmurd.

Women have frequently been Artist of the Year, with Taylor Swift winning three times and Ariana Grande taking the prize last year.

The nominations come amid growing attention to gender inequality in the United States - conspicuously so in the entertainment industry - and amid mounting allegations that Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein preyed for years on young women.
