AceShowbiz - For the first time ever, MTV will hold Movie and TV Awards honoring the best in the big screen and small screen. The nominees have just been announced. Instead of being separated on the basis of their genders, actors and actresses are categorized based on movie and TV show.
The other categories, except for Movie of the Year and Show of the Year, are also a mix of both. %cJordan Peele%'s directorial movie "Get Out" leads the pack with six nods. It's followed by Disney's reimagining "Beauty and the Beast (2017)" and Netflix's hit show "Stranger Things" with four nods each.
%cDaniel Kaluuya% ("Get Out"), %cEmma Watson% ("Beauty and the Beast"), %cHailee Steinfeld% ("The Edge of Seventeen"), %cHugh Jackman% ("Logan"), %cJames McAvoy% ("Split") and %cTaraji P. Henson% ("Hidden Figures") are pitted against each other for Best Actor in a Movie.
Meanwhile, nominees for Best Actor in a Show are %cDonald Glover% ("Atlanta"), %cEmilia Clarke% ("Game of Thrones"), %cGina Rodriguez% ("Jane the Virgin"), %cJeffrey Dean Morgan% ("The Walking Dead", %cMandy Moore% ("This Is Us") and %cMillie Bobby Brown% ("Stranger Things").
"Get Out" and "Beauty and the Beast" are nominated for Movie of the Year along with coming-of-age dramedy "The Edge of Seventeen", third Wolverine solo movie "Logan" and the first installment of "Star Wars" anthology story "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story".
The winners will be feted in a live telecast hosted by %cAdam DeVine% on Sunday, May 7 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
