Stranger Things also scored a total of seven noms, including for best show and best performance in a show for Millie Bobby Brown, who last year received an Emmy nom for her role as Eleven. Game of Thrones, 13 Reasons Why, Grown-ish and Riverdale also are competing for best show.
Other top nominees in the film categories include It and Girls Trip with four mentions and Avengers: Infinity War, Wonder Woman and Star Wars: The Last Jedi with three apiece. Disney was the top studio with a total of 15 noms.
On the TV side, shows earning multiple noms include Riverdale with four and Game of Thrones with three. Netflix leads all TV networks and streamers with 10 total noms.
For a second consecutive year, the categories will be gender-neutral, with both men and women competing alongside each other. For best TV performance, Brown is nominated alongside Darren Criss (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story), Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why), Issa Rae (Insecure) and Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones). On the film side, Boseman will compete for best movie performance along with Oscar winner Timothée Chalamet (Call Me by Your Name), Ansel Elgort (Baby Driver), Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) and Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird).
MTV also unveiled nominees in a slew of other categories, including best villain, onscreen team, comedic performance, fight, reality series/franchise, scene stealer and, of course, best kiss, one of the more quirky staples of the show. Additional categories and honors will be announced at a later date.
