The 2017 MTV Movie & TV Award nominations were announced on Thursday, April 6, and now you can predict the winners in all 16 categories. Who do you think will take home the Golden Popcorn? Check out the complete list of nominees here.
The MTV Movie Awards have been handed out since 1992, but for 2017 the awards were rechristened the MTV Movie & TV Awards, honoring the best on both the big screen and small screen for the very first time. So this is the first opportunity for fan-favorite shows like “Stranger Things” and “Game of Thrones” to test their mettle against big-screen blockbusters like “Beauty and the Beast” and “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”
But in the top categories, movies and TV shows remain separate. In the race for Movie of the Year, “Beauty” and “Rogue One” face off against “Get Out,” “Logan” and “The Edge of Seventeen.” “Get Out” had a markedly smaller budget than a few of its rivals, but it’s actually the most nominated film or TV program of the year with six bids, also including Best Actor in a Movie for breakout star Daniel Kaluuya.
“Stranger Things” is the most nominated TV program with four nominations, including Show of the Year and Best Actor in a Show (Millie Bobby Brown). In the Show of the Year contest it battles the aforementioned “Game of Thrones” as well as “Atlanta,” “Insecure,” “Pretty Little Liars” and “This is Us.”
But while cinema contenders are considered separately from TV shows in top categories, everything is combined in the races for Best Kiss, Best Villain, Best Comedic Performance, Best Hero, Best Duo, Best Tearjerker, Best American Story, Best Fight Against the System and the Next Generation Award.
