Locals Get Mtv Nominations

Times Staff: AP

Seattle-area groups Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Sir Mix-A-Lot are among the performers nominated for the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards, announced yesterday.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers took the most nominations, eight, for their videos "Under the Bridge" and "Give It Away." The funk-soul group En Vogue and veteran hard-rock band Van Halen tied for the second-highest number of nominations with six each.

Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back" each took three; Pearl Jam's "Alive" got one - competing with Nirvana for best alternative video.

Nirvana also is represented, in a sense, in a fourth category: Weird Al Yankovic's spoof, "Smells Like Nirvana," won him a nomination for best male video.

In another odd note, the 16-year-old Queen hit, "Bohemian Rhapsody," first on the charts in 1976, is up for best video from a film ("Wayne's World").

Fans can see several nominees here this summer: Metallica and Guns N' Roses (competing in the cinematography category) play the Kingdome Aug. 18. Sir Mix-A-Lot will be at the Paramount Aug. 22. And Eric Clapton will be at the Tacoma Dome Sept. 6.

The awards will be telecast on MTV Sept. 9. Dana Carvey of "Saturday Night Live" and "Wayne's World" will be the host.
