“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,” Chris McCarthy, President of MTV, explained the network's decision to include TV nominees. "The new MTV Movie and TV Awards will celebrate even more of the brightest, bravest, funniest and most shared films and TV shows resonating across youth culture.”

The new-and-improved awards show will take place at Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium and will air live on Sunday, May 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
