Winners in both categories will be unveiled Sunday, May 7.

The MTV Movie & TV Awards have added two additional categories, revealing the nominees for "Trending - Presented by Instant" TV moments and "Best Musical Moment" on a TV show or film.

The "Trending - Presented by Instant" nominees consist of memorable viral moments from the past year, including Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer impression on Saturday Night Live, Lady Gaga's "Carpool Karaoke" on James Corden's Late Late Show and Winona Ryder's memorable faces during Stranger Things' SAG Awards win. The "Trending - Presented by Instant" winner, which fans can vote on now on MTV.com, will be announced during the fan festival leading up to this year's awards show. 

The "Best Musical Moment" category, a partnership with the musical.ly app, celebrates memorable movie and TV songs. To vote in that category, fans can create custom musical.ly videos using songs from their favorite nominated moments. Each video submission counts as a vote and members of the musical.ly community can use "likes" to bolster their favorite nominees' position. The "Best Musical Moment" winner will be recognized during the main awards show.

Voting on both categories ends Sunday, May 7. The MTV Movie & TV Awards, hosted by Adam Devine, will air live from Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium that day at 8 p.m. ET and PT.
