With six nods each, Missy Elliott's "Pass That Dutch" and Christina Aguilera's "Fighter" are the top nominees for the 2004 Music Video Production Assn. (MVPA) Awards. The 13th annual show will take place May 20 at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles.

Nominations for "Pass That Dutch" include best art direction, choreography and coloring. "Fighter" is up for best pop video, hair and makeup. In addition, both videos are nominated for best cinematography, styling and direction of a female artist.

No Doubt's "It's My Life" has five nominations: best rock video, styling, editing, hair and makeup.

Nominees for director of the year are David LaChapelle ("It's My Life"), Dave Meyers ("Pass That Dutch"), Floria Sigismondi ("Fighter"), the Malloys (Metallica's "St. Anger") and Sophie Muller (Pink's "Trouble").

Videos produced in 2003 are eligible for the awards; winners are selected by a vote of MVPA members. The MVPA will reveal the nominees for the video of the year category at a later date.
