What are some of the other categories?

This year, MTV decided to combine the actor and actress categories into one, unlike most awards shows, which split up those awards by gender. They've also added a few new categories, including best American story, which showcases "open and diverse" movies and shows (the nominees include Black-ish, Fresh Off the Boat, Jane the Virgin, Moonlight, and Transparent) and best fight against the system, which highlights characters "fighting against a system that tries to keep them down." Nominees in that category include Get Out, Hidden Figures, Loving, Luke Cage, and Mr. Robot.

Other categories include next generation, with nominees Chrissy Metz, Daniel Kaluuya, Issa Rae, Riz Ahmed, and Yara Shahidi, and best villain, featuring Williams for Get Out, the Demogorgon for Stranger Things, Jared Leto for Suicide Squad, Jeffrey Dean Morgan for The Walking Dead, and Wes Bentley for American Horror Story.

How do I vote?

You can vote for your favorites on MTV's website. Two more categories will be revealed closer to the show, although it's unclear when voting will be open for those.

When/where can I watch?

Pitch Perfect star (and best comedic performance nominee) Adam Devine will be handing out the golden popcorn in this year's ceremony, which will air on Sunday, May 7 at 8 p.m. on MTV. The awards will air live, and, because this is MTV, we're ready to guarantee now that at least one actor will take his shirt off. (Although, sadly, the best shirtless performance category appears to be no more.)
