The full list of 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards nominees has been released

04.06.2017

Despite what you think about MTV and the manner in which their programming has drastically changed throughout the years, one thing is for certain, their annual awards program is making major strides for representation in pop culture media. For example, this year's show will include a mix of film, TV and streaming programs in some categories while simultaneously abolishing gender divisions when selecting nominees for their awards. Essentially, this year's ceremony will eliminate the Best Actress and Best Actor categories, with performers set to race against one another for (simply) a Best Actor statue.

In addition to such "fan-favorite" categories as Best Kiss, Best Hero and Best Villain. New categories include Show of the Year, Best Host, Best Reality Competition, Tearjerker and Next Generation, MTV will be giving out awards for Best American Story awarded to the show or film that showcases America at its best (“open and diverse”), Best Fight Against the System (characters who “best exemplify fighting against a system that tries to keep them down”). Furthermore, there are still two more categories that are set to be revealed closer to the show's air date of May 7, 2017.

There you have it! There are some interesting choices here, as well as a few eye-rolling ones for sure. That said, it's pretty sweet to see Jordan Peele's GET OUT leading the pack with a total of 6 nominations. Furthermore, I totally dig the idea of having an awards show that breaks the mold and goes out of its way to recognize performances that you'd never in a million years see nominated as a part of Hollywood's more upscale award ceremonies.

The 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards is set to take place on May 7, 2017.

Who do you think should win in any one of these categories? Let us know in the comments section below!

What the fuck is "Best Fight Against the System"?! What a stupid award. Another anti-government innuendo.
Either way, Logan, what ever it is nominated for deserves all the wins. But unfortunately everything will go to La La Land and Beauty and the Beast.

How long a period are these awards supposed to cover?
The movie of the year are all very recent "hot" films, and the one film from last year they figure their audience will actually remember.
Oh yeah, throw in a teenage angsty film too so folks know we're still hip.

1) They cover every movie and show released since the last ceremony (April 2016).
2) How is it hip to nominate a movie that didn't even gross 20 million?

Most of the choices were refreshingly out of the box. In a lot of these ceremonies, they choose based on box office results rather than reviews. The nominees for Movie of the Year were mostly a combination of both. I just have one doubt. The characters in JANE THE VIRGIN and (from what I've read, since I don't watch it) FRESH OFF THE BOAT were born in the US but, since the shows are about their original cultures (Hispanic and Asian), I don't get why they're nominated for Best American Story.

The award has always been called Best Performance (sometimes separated into Male and Female). I don't know why they re-named it.
