‘Get Out,’ ‘Stranger Things’ Lead 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards Nominations

Jordan Peele’s hit horror lands six nods, including Movie of the Year and Best Actor in a Movie

Jordan Peele’s critically-acclaimed horror “Get Out” led the nominations for the 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards with six nods, including Movie of the Year and Best Actor in a Movie (Daniel Kaluuya). His co-star Allison Williams was also nominated for (spoiler alert!) Best Villain.

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” and Netflix’s “Stranger Things” followed with four nods apiece, while FX’s “Atlanta,” “Game of Thrones,” “Hidden Figures,” “Logan,” “Moonlight” and NBC’s “This Is Us” each landed three.

MTV announced in March that it was rebranding its 25-year-old movie awards show to include small-screen categories. For the first time, fan-favorite categories like Best Kiss, Best Hero and Best Comedic Performance and more have been blended to include nominees from film, TV and streaming series. This year, there are also brand new categories including Show of the Year, Best Host, Best Reality Competition, Tearjerker and Next Generation.

MTV has also introduced two new and timely categories: Best American Story, which will be awarded to the movie or TV that showcases America at its best, as well as Best Fight Against the System. The network has also replaced the former Best Actor and Best Actress categories with non-gendered Best Actor in a Movie and Best Actor in a show.

Adam Devine will host the MTV Movie and TV Awards live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California on Sunday, May 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
