In the film category, men and women are equally matched in terms of nominations, with Get Out's lead Daniel Kaluuya facing up against Beauty and the Beast's Emma Watson.

The 32-year-old actress shared a throwback photo on Thursday of her 2002 MTV Movie Award - until this year's ceremony, the show has not included TV shows among the nominees - for Breakthrough Female Performance in A Walk to Remember.

The MTV Movie Awards already made a big change this year by becoming the MTV Movie & TV Awards.


Fellow recent box-office hit Beauty and the Beast has four nominations, including one for movie of the year, while Hugh Jackman's final Wolverine outing, Logan, has three nominations as do Oscar favorites Moonlight, La La Land and Hidden Figures.

On the television side of the awards, nominations for best show went to FX's "Atlanta"; HBO's "Game of Thrones" and "Insecure"; Freeform's "Pretty Little Liars"; Netflix's "Stranger Things"; and NBC's "This is Us". Competing for best actor in a show are Millie Bobby Brown ("Stranger Things"), Emilia Clarke ("Game of Thrones"), Donald Glover ("Atlanta"), Mandy Moore ("This Is Us"), Jeffrey Dean Morgan ("The Walking Dead") and Gina Rodriguez ("Jane the Virgin"). Finally, the film is nominated in the "Best Fight Against The System" category, recognizing movies or shows whose characters are shown battling a system that is trying to oppress them. This year's show will air live from Los Angeles on May 7 and will be hosted by Adam DeVine of the "Pitch Perfect" movies and Comedy Central's "Workaholics" series.
