The 2017 MTV Movie & TV Award Nominees Are Here!


The MTV Movie & TV Award nominees have just been announced, and the freshly minted show looks amazing.

This year, MTV has mixed it up quite a bit expanding from just films into the TV realm. Looking at the current landscape of entertainment this year, MTV is obviously trying to stay abreast of the times. Along with TV, they’ve also added several new categories including, “Tearjerker” and “Best American Story.”

“Best American Story” in particular will highlight, immigrants, people of color, and the LGBT community in entertainment. This year, Moonlight, Black-ish, Jane the Virgin and Fresh Off the Boat are all nominated in this category.

Another major adjustment in this year’s categories is “Best Fight.” Instead of glorifying violence when it is already so permeated in our society, MTV has flipped the script to call the category, “Best Fight the System.” Don’t worry, Pepsi is not nominated but, Get Out, Hidden Figures and Luke Cage are!

Many of our 2016-2017 faves are being honored various categories. From Get Out to This Is Us and Atlanta, the world has demanded diverse and amazing stories from Hollywood, and this past year, the film studios and television networks have delivered.

The MTV Movies & TV Awards will be held on Sunday, May 7th in Los Angeles, California with Pitch Perfect star Adam Devine set to host. The show will air live from the Shrine Auditorium at 8 PM ET Check out the full list of nominees below.
