South African movie & TV lovers get ready for a spectacular evening of entertainment.

South African movie & TV lovers get ready for a spectacular evening of entertainment. MTV announced the categories and nominees for the first-ever 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, celebrating the actors, stories and moments that defined pop culture in the past year. Fans can vote immediately at MTV.com. Comedian, film and TV star Adam Devine will host young Hollywood’s party of the year. The show will be televised LIVE on MTV (130) on Monday 8 May at 02:00 CAT and will repeat later that evening on both MTV (130) and MTV Base (322) at 21:00 CAT.
 
Breakout horror film, Get Out, leads the pack with six nominations including Movie of the Year, Best Villain & Best Fight Against the System. The film’s star, David Kaluuya, secures his first-ever major US award show nods for Best Actor in a Movie, Next Generation and Best Duo with Lil Rel Howery. Additional leading nominees include Beauty and the Beast and Stranger Things with four, as well as Atlanta, Game of Thrones, Hidden Figures, Logan, Moonlight and This is Us, scoring three nods each.  
 
This year’s nominations include transformations of both categories fans have come to expect as well as the introduction of new ones. While fan favorites like Best Kiss, Best Hero, Best Villain and more remain, MTV has collapsed the divide between film, television and streaming series, instead nominating the best performances no matter the screen. Also for the first time, the former Best Actor and Best Actress categories have been replaced with non-gendered Best Actor in a Movie and Best Actor in a Show.
 
Among the most iconic categories, Best Fight has been modernised to Best Fight the System, reflecting the audience’s increasing awareness and activism around broader social justice issues. In addition, MTV is introducing new and timely categories including: Best American Story, awarded to the show or film that showcases America at its most open and diverse; Tearjerker, awarded to the scene that most illuminates the emotional connection people feel to characters; Best Host, highlighting the cross-section of personalities speaking to young people today; Best Reality Competition and Next Generation. Additional categories will be revealed closer to the show.
