MTV’s annual Movie Awards are getting a makeover.

For the first time ever, the award show’s signature unique categories such as Best Kiss, Best Duo and Best Villain will pit the silver-screen nominees against ones from television and streaming services, paving way for the newly christened MTV Movie & TV Awards.

There are also other changes in store. New categories this year include Show of the Year, Best Host, Best Reality Competition, Tearjerker and Next Generation. MTV also replaced the former Best Actor and Best Actress categories with non-gendered Best Actor in a Movie and Best Actor in a Show.

Jordan Peele‘s horror flick Get Out leads the pack with six nominations, including three nods for the film’s leading man, David Kaluuya, in the categories of Best Actor in a Movie, Next Generation and Best Duo with Lil Rel Howery.

Beauty and the Beast and Stranger Things nabbed four nominations each, while Atlanta, Game of Thrones, Hidden Figures, Logan, Moonlight and This Is High scored an impressive three nominations each.

After checking out all the nominees, listed below, fans can vote for their favorites at MTV.com.
