MTV Movie & TV Awards adds two new categories to Sunday’s ceremony: Trending and Best Musical Moment

In addition to the nominations that were announced last month, the MTV Movie & TV Awards have added two more categories in preparation for Sunday’s ceremony: Trending and Best Musical Moment. “These genius, snackable moments have dominated the internet through clicks, shares, memes and social chatter, and deserve to be recognized alongside the more traditional Movie and TV categories,” MTV said in a statement. The MTV Awards ceremony will take place May 7 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, hosted by Adam Devine.
