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.
Zika Virus Reported in Pregnant Women in 44 States
Almost 1,300 pregnant women with evidence of possible Zika infection were reported to the registry. Vital Signs is a report that appears as part of the CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report .
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".
