"Get Out", "Beauty & the Beast", and "Stranger Things" lead MTV Awards

By Erny Suzira


Adam DeVine is set to host the inaugural MTV Movies & TV Awards.

7 Apr – MTV Movie Awards is getting a makeover this year as it has made a few changes to the ceremony which includes a new name, inclusion of television categories for the first time, and removing gender specific awards.

Now known as MTV Movies & TV Awards, the 26th edition of the annual broadcast is slated for Sunday, 7 May 2017, and will honour work in television for the first time alongside feature films.

It is set to be hosted by actor and comedian Adam DeVine.

Additionally, the actors and actresses categories have been combined into non-gendered fields for movies and television shows, and two additional categories will be revealed closer to the show.

The nomination list for the prestigious ceremony is already out with Jordan Peele's record-breaking directorial debut, "Get Out" leading the pack with six nominations including Movie of the Year and a Next Generation nomination for star Daniel Kaluuya.

The live-action adaptation of "Beauty and the Beast" follows behind with four nominations, including a Best Actor in a Movie nomination for Emma Watson, who will be going against male actors like Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy.

On the television side, "Stranger Things" has also nabbed four nominations while "Game of Thrones" follows closely behind with three nominations, where both shows are nominated in the coveted Show of the Year award.
