Do you think Zayn, Harry & Co. are gonna take home the gong? After winning 3 awards at the MTV VMAs last month, a couple of AMAs would surely be the icing on the cake for the British boyband!

Lots of our other favorites are up for awards, too: Taylor Swift has been nominated for Favorite Female Artist in the Country category, while Justin Bieber is up for 3 titles and Rihanna is in the running for an impressive 4! Check out for the full list of nominees and to cast your vote.
