Nominees announced for the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards

The nominees have been announced for MTV’s newly expanded Movie & TV Awards, and Jordan Peele’s record-setting “Get Out” leads the pack with six nods. 

The cable channel decided to shake things up this year, expanding its movie awards to include television as well, with some distinctly MTV approaches to categories like best American story and best fight against the system. They’ve also combined male and female acting nominees into single categories. 

Adam Devine will host the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards on May 7, broadcasting live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles at 8:00 p.m. ET.
