Both of them have been nominated for best music video, song of the year and best singer.
Linh's album Hoang has earned her a nomination for best album, thanks to songs inspired by Vietnamese literary works and idioms. It is varied, profound and vibrant.
Linh was also nominated for best music video in 2017.
Tung is a strong contender for best show for Sky Tour, which took him from Hanoi to HCM City Tung.
Tung won best singer in 2016 and was nominated for best music video in 2018 & 2019.
For the first time, Tran Manh Hung will be hosting the awards. He is also nominated for best producer. Last year, directed concerts for Tan Nhan, Pham Thuy Dung and Vinh Cat.

The three-member group worked on Hoang and music video Để Mỵ Nói Cho Mà Nghe (Let Me Say), which were both hits.
The awards will also feature ĐạtG - DuUyên in the best music video category, and Pham Thuy Dung in the best singer and best show categories.
The new artist category is always much-anticipated, and has five nominations this year.
Amee is one young artist to emerge last year with a string of hits. Her writer composer LyLy has also been nominated in the same category.
The board announced the official nominations in Thể Thao Văn Hóa (Sport & Culture) newspaper on Wednesday.
