    Spike TV has announced the nominees for the tenth annual VGAs. “VGA Ten” will be hosted this year by Samuel L. Jackson and will feature the typical world premiers as well as musical performances from Linkin Park and Tenacious D. It will be shown live from Sony Picture Studios in Culver City on Friday, December 7th at 9pm PT on Spike TV.
