MTV Movie Awards now Adding TV!

As if the MTV Movie Awards isn’t insane enough the format is changing this year to include TV. Is this a sign that MTV has realized that TV has become just as good as film or did they have trouble coming up with movies worth honoring this year? Regardless of the reason, I fully support giving television its due! The show airs May 7 in LA. Who knows, you may see me out there.

Unlike the Golden Globes, the MTV Movie and TV Awards show is pitting TV directly against popular films.  It’s going to be intriguing watching TV Shows like Luke Cage and Mr. Robot go against a movie like Get Out in the best “Fight Against The System.” Full list of nominees are below. Adam Devine is hosting.
