And just like that, this year's American Music Awards is right around the corner. Today (Sept. 12), the nominees for the 2018 American Music Awards were announced, and Drake, Cardi B and XXXTentacion and more are among the picks for the star-studded awards show.

Tied for the lead are Drake and Cardi B, who are both nominated for eight awards, according to E! News. Drake stands to take home the awards for Artist of the Year, Favorite Music Video for "God's Plan," Favorite Male Artist (Pop/Rock), Favorite Album in both the Hip-Hop and Pop/Rock categories for Scorpion, Favorite Song for "God's Plan" and Favorite Artist (Rap/Hip-Hop).

Cardi, on the other hand, is looking at noms for Best New Artist, a category in which XXXTentacion is posthumously nominated in. She's also will compete with Drake in the categories of Favorite Artist (Rap/Hip-Hop) and Favorite Song (Rap/Hip-Hop) and Favorite Music Video for "Bodak Yellow." In addition, she snagged the nom for Favorite Female Artist (Pop/Rock), and Best Collaboration for "Finesse (Remix)" with Bruno Mars which is also nominated for Favorite Song (Soul/R&B).

Aside from Best New Artist, XXXTentacion was also nominated for Favorite Album (Soul/R&B) for his album 17. 

Post Malone, Young Thug and Lil Uzi Vert also picked up nominations for the 2018 American Music Awards. The nominations this year are definitely reflective of awards given thus far in 2018. Last month, Cardi B and Drake both took home MTV Video Music Awards, as did a large number of other hip-hop artists. Earlier in the summer, Migos, Cardi B and Young Thug all picked up BET Awards.

The show will take place at 8 p.m. on Oct. 9 at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles. See the full list of the 2018 American Music Award nominations below.
