On Thursday, MTV announced the nominations for the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, the network's first-ever combining of movie and TV-related categories. The ceremony airs May 7 live at 8pm, with Adam Devine hosting the festivities.

In terms of overall nominees, Jordan Peele's horror film Get Out leads the pack with six nominations, including Movie of the Year. Among the TV nominees, Netflix's hit Stranger Things led the way with four nominations. Game of ThronesAtlanta and This Is Us were close behind with three nods each.

This year's MTV's annual awards show features a shakeup in some of the categories longtime fans of the straight-up Movie Awards might have been accustomed to. For the first time, traditional categories like Best Kiss, Best Duo and more will be blended to include nominees from film, TV and streaming series. With this mixing of media over the categories, fans will be presented with interesting matchups in certain categories, such as Allison Williams of Get Out facing off with Stranger Things' Demogorgon for Best Villain.
