Check out who walks away a victor when Workaholics' Adam Devine hosts the MTV Movie & TV Awards live on Sunday, May 7 at 8pm ET/PT from the Shrine Auditorium in LA. Two more categories will be revealed closer to the show, MTV teases. As on the movie side, best actor in a show is a non-gendered category whose nominees include Brown, Atlanta's Donald Glover, Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke, Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez, The Walking Dead's Jeffrey Dean Morgan and This is Us' Mandy Moore.
This is the first year in which the former MTV Movie Awards are recognizing television, which means movie and TV nominees go head to head in the same specialty categories.
Now, after a quarter century of giving out its Golden Popcorn bucket to the best of movies, MTV will celebrate TV too.More news: Top Intelligence committee Dem: Too early to draw conclusions on Russian Federation probe
On the TV side, Stranger Things leads with four nominations including show of the year, best actor in a show (Millie Bobby Brown), best villain (Demogorgon) and best hero (Brown).
The ceremony will air live from the Shrine Auditorium at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday, May 7. Earning three nods are Moonlight, Atlanta, Hidden Figures, Game of Thrones, This Is Us and Moonlight. Winners are chosen by fans voting online.
This Is Us also landed nominations for Show of the Year, as well as in a category called Tearjerkers (you have to think the emotionally intense NBC show has that one locked).
