This Is Us, Get Out Lead MTV Movie and TV Awards Nominations

This Is Us and Moonlight will go head-to-head

Sadie Gennis

MTV did a serious revamp of the network's long-running Movie Awards this year.
For the first time ever, the MTV Movie Awards will also include TV shows. But the network took things a step further by having both movies and TV shows to compete against each other in the majority of the categories. Although MTV will still handout the golden popcorn trophies for medium-specific categories like Best TV Show, Best Movie and Best Actor for both television and film, most of the categories are now all-inclusive. The awards show also debuted new gender-neutral acting categories, rather than have separate races for male and female performers.
Additionally, MTV also zhuzhed up one of its standard categories, transforming Best Fight into Best Fight Against the System, which honors films and series that champion characters fighting against an oppressive system. This year will also feature the debut of the category Best American Story, which will feature movies and shows that portray the best of this diverse country.
So with all these changes afoot, how did the actual nominees shake out? Check them out for yourself below!
The MTV Movie and TV Awards will be held May 7.
