Nominees // 2018 MTV MOVIE AND TV AWARDS

Disney/Marvel's Black Panther leads the film nominees.



The nominations for the 2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards (renamed from the former MTV Movie Awards) were announced, with Black Panther leading the film categories with seven nominations and Stranger Things leading the television categories with six.


The list leans heavily towards pop culture and audience favorites, as opposed to other awards shows that lean more critical and quality focused. The timeframe is a little askew, with performances and projects from 2017 mingling in the categories with current 2018 releases, like Avengers: Infinity War securing a Best Film mention, despite just releasing last weekend.


Notably, the awards do not feature gender-specific categories, opting for Best Performance over Best Actor and Actress.


The 2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards take place June 18 in Los Angeles with Tiffany Haddish set as the ceremony's host.
