HOLLYWOOD—Well, the times are changing people! For the first time in the history of the MTV Movie Awards, the 2017 ceremony will combine TV with Film. Yep, it’s a clash of two of the biggest forms of entertainment. The film “Get Out” and the Netflix hit “Stranger Things” are the top contenders picking up 6 nominations and 4 nominations respectively.

To be honest I’m not certain how I feel about the sudden changes, because it means many popular categories have been eliminated and we are now seeing a combination of categories that were once separate. Yup, the guys and girls will face-off in the Best Actor in a Movie category, as well as Best Actor in a Show category.

The winners will be selected by the public, so that should give you a sign that popular will overrule versus critical praise. A list of this year’s nominees can be viewed below:
