Nominations were announced today for the annual MTV Movie Awards, which will include for the first time ever, movie and television categories on the show. The show is now called The MTV Movie & TV Awards

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

“We’re living in a golden age of content, and great storytelling and characters resonate regardless of whether you’re watching it in a theater or on TV,” said MTV president Chris McCarthy. “The new ‘MTV Movie & TV Awards’ will celebrate even more of the brightest, bravest, funniest and most shared films and TV shows resonating across youth culture.”

Also nominated was this year Best Picture winner Moonlight, which will compete against four television programs for Best American Story.
