rs_1024x712-170313100801-1024-mtv-movie-and-tv-awards-31317

This year, the MTV Movie Awards is becoming the MTV Movie and TV Awards, adding TV shows to the mix. Another change is that the acting categories are genderless.  The TV and movie nominees are mostly in their separate categories unless its an “event” category, like Best Kiss.

Here are my picks below. This was fun because I was familiar with a lot of the nominees. Let me know who you think should win.

MOVIE OF THE YEAR 

Beauty and the Beast

Get Out 

Logan 

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story 

The Edge of Seventeen 

BEST ACTOR IN A MOVIE 

Daniel Kaluuya – Get Out

Emma Watson – Beauty and the Beast

Hailee Steinfeld – The Edge of Seventeen

Hugh Jackman – Logan

James McAvoy – Split

Taraji P. Henson – Hidden Figures

Get Out to me was a major movie on so many levels, the acting, the story and the larger social commentary makes this movie a classic, making its an easy pick for these two categories.

SHOW OF THE YEAR       

Atlanta 

Game of Thrones 

Insecure 

Pretty Little Liars 

Stranger Things     

This Is Us      

BEST ACTOR IN A SHOW   

Donald Glover – Atlanta  

Emilia Clarke – Game of Thrones

Gina Rodriguez – Jane the Virgin

Jeffrey Dean Morgan – The Walking Dead

Mandy Moore – This Is Us

Millie Bobby Brown – Stranger Things

I love Insecure, but Atlanta was so good all around. I like how the episodes can be stand alone episodes but also are apart of the serial series.  And Donald Glover acting was so subtle yet hilarious.

BEST KISS     

Ashton Sanders and Jharrel Jerome – Moonlight    

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling – La La Land

Emma Watson and Dan Stevens – Beauty and the Beast

Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard – Empire

Zac Efron and Anna Kendrick – Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

Such a sweet kiss that turn into such a sour situation.

BEST VILLAIN   

Allison Williams – Get Out

Demogorgon – Stranger Things

Jared Leto – Suicide Squad

Jeffrey Dean Morgan – The Walking Dead

Wes Bentley – American Horror Story

I wasn’t surprised that she was the villain in the movie, but how this character really trapped all these people makes her the ultimate villan.

BEST HOST     

Ellen DeGeneres – The Ellen DeGeneres Show

John Oliver – Last Week Tonight With John Oliver

RuPaul – RuPaul’s Drag Race

Samantha Bee – Full Frontal With Samantha Bee

Trevor Noah – The Daily Show

I’ve only watched some of this show, but RuPaul over presentation and concept of this show has always been amazing.

BEST DOCUMENTARY       

13TH 

I Am Not Your Negro 

O.J.: Made in America     

This Is Everything: Gigi Gorgeous

TIME: The Kalief Browder Story 

I can’t believe I watched like over 6 hours of this even after I watch People v. OJ Simpson. But it offered yet another perspective to this complicated case.

BEST REALITY COMPETITION       

America’s Got Talent     

MasterChef Junior 

RuPaul’s Drag Race 

The Bachelor     

The Voice

Seeing these kids stressed out is actually very amusing.

BEST COMEDIC PERFORMANCE       

Adam Devine – Workaholics

Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson – Broad City

Lil Rel Howery – Get Out  

Seth MacFarlane – Family Guy

Seth Rogen – Sausage Party

Will Arnett – The LEGO Batman Movie

Lil Rel Howery was basically the voice of reason and said all the audience members thoughts within the movie. His comedic performance and a necessary lightness to the movie.

BEST HERO       

Felicity Jones – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Grant Gustin – The Flash

Mike Colter – Luke Cage

Millie Bobby Brown – Stranger Things

Stephen Amell – Arrow

Taraji P. Henson – Hidden Figures 

TEARJERKER 

Game of Thrones – Hodor’s (Kristian Nairn) Death

Grey’s Anatomy – Meredith tells her children about Derek’s death (Ellen Pompeo)

Me Before You – Will (Sam Claflin) tells Louisa (Emilia Clarke) he can’t stay with her

Moonlight – Paula (Naomie Harris) tells Chiron (Trevante Rhodes) that she loves him

This Is Us – Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Randall (Lonnie Chavis) at karate

NEXT GENERATION

Chrissy Metz

Daniel Kaluuya

Her acting and writing are amazing and she brings in a unique point of view.

BEST DUO       

Adam Levine and Blake Shelton – The Voice

Daniel Kaluuya and Lil Rel Howery – Get Out

Brian Tyree Henry and Lakeith Stanfield – Atlanta  

Hugh Jackman and Dafne Keen – Logan

Josh Gad and Luke Evans – Beauty and the Beast

Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg – Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party

Huge fan of Get Out but Daniel and Lil Rel aren’t together often. Brian and Lakeith are the cutest best friends ever.

BEST AMERICAN STORY     

Black-ish 

Fresh Off the Boat       

Jane the Virgin       

Moonlight

Transparent   

Funny and an honest portrayal of a black experience in America.

Get Out
