Here are the Nominees for the MTV Movie & TV Awards!

©Marvel Studios 2018

MTV may not be playing music videos all day anymore, but they sure do know how to put on a good awards show. Today they released the official nominees for the MTV Movie & TV Awards and there are all sorts of goodies (and some baddies in the Villains category!) from this past year. Marvel’s Black Panther received the most nominations with seven, but Netflix’s Stranger Things wasn’t too far behind. 13 Reasons Why, Thor: Ragnarok, and IT are also a few that received some love. Despite opening last weekend, Avengers: Infinity War was able to make it into consideration, and with a nomination for Best Villain for Josh Brolin’s Thanos we definitely think things may be leaning in his favor. The show will be hosted by Tiffany Haddish, who also received a nomination for her hilarious role in Girls Trip.
