A few new categories are being added, including Show of the Year, Best Host, Best Reality Competition, Tearjerker, and Next Generation, while peeps in the Best Kiss, Best Hero, and Best Villain categories will compete with others from both shows and films.
Previously known as the MTV Movie Awards, the youth-orientated network widened the categories of its annual show to include television for the first time.
The ceremony will air live from the Shrine Auditorium at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday, May 7.
This means the nominations, which were revealed today, see Game of Thrones' resident Queen of Dragons, Emilia Clarke, compete for the TV show prize against Stranger Things' 13-year-old star Millie Bobby Brown.
Twitter challenges US order for anti-Trump user records
Trump has vowed to build a wall along the US border with Mexico and has promised to deport millions of illegal immigrants. DHS Press Secretary Jenny Burke told NBC News: "As a matter of policy, we do not comment on pending litigation".
TV comedy-drama Atlanta, fantasy series Game Of Thrones, films Hidden Figures, Logan and Moonlight, and Mandy Moore's TV drama This Is Us are all on three nominations at the moment.
Psychological race-centric horror Get Out earned six nominations for the awards show on May 7th, while Beauty and the Beast and Stranger Things pulled in four nominations each.
This Is Us also landed nominations for Show of the Year, as well as in a category called Tearjerkers (you have to think the emotionally intense NBC show has that one locked).
Ditching gendered categories has become more common with awards shows. MTV said "best fight against the system" (formerly best fight) will recognize the TV show or movie whose characters exemplify a fight "against a system that tries to keep them down".
