This year's nominees and categories celebrating the best on the big and small screen will be announced tomorrow.

Previously known as the MTV Movie Awards, the youth-orientated network widened the categories of its annual show to include television for the first time.

The new divisions have Get Out's Daniel Kaluuya competing directly with Emma Watson for her role as Belle in Beauty and the Beast in the "Best Actor in a Movie" category as voting for the award show opened on MTV's website.


MTV announced that comedian, film and TV star Adam Devine will host young Hollywood's party of the year at the "2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards" LIVE from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, Calif. on Sunday, May 7 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT. Nominees and categories will be announced tomorrow at 12:00 p.m. ET / 9:00 a.m. PT.

The smooch between Ashton Sanders and Jharrel Jerome also scored a nomination for "Best Kiss". 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. 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"). Winners are chosen by fans voting online.

Comedian-turned-director Jordan Peele's hit has received nods for Movie of the Year, Best Villain, Best Fight Against the System, Best Actor in a Movie, Next Generation and Best Duo. MTV said "best fight against the system" (formerly best fight) will recognize the TV show or movie whose characters exemplify a fight "against a system that tries to keep them down".
