"The new MTV Movie and TV Awards will celebrate even more of the brightest, bravest, funniest and most shared films and TV shows resonating across youth culture".

Funnyman Adam Devine will host the MTV Movie & TV Awards, set to air across the MTV family of channels live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Sunday, May 7.

"Get Out", written and directed by Jordan Peele, will compete for movie of the year with Disney's blockbuster "Beauty and the Beast", the X-Men sequel "Logan", the box-office hit "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" and the drama "The Edge of Seventeen". Atlanta, Game of Thrones and This is Us each have three nominations, including one for show of the year, where they'll face off against Stranger Things, Pretty Little Liars and Insecure.

Judge Plans To Strike Down Missouri Abortion Restrictions
An anti-choice law that was signed in IN by then-Governor Mike Pence has been blocked by a federal judge under established Roe V. Friday, Judge Tanya Walton Pratt granted a preliminary injunction against the ultrasound requirement.

The MTV Movie & TV awards will no longer feature separate categories for male and female actors - and will add TV and streaming categories.

The leaders are Get Out with six nominations and Beauty and the Beast and Stranger Things with four. 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"). Not only did the Oscars give us the most epic fail we've ever seen on stage and Adele give a Grammy acceptance speech that moved everyone (including Beyoncé) to tears, now MTV has announced that it's ditching the best actor and actress divisions in order to make the categories completely gender-inclusive.
