MTV is launching a brand new awards show, the Movie & TV Awards, which debuts on May 7. Taking the place of the network’s iconic Movie Awards, the ceremony takes some bold risks by mixing genders, TV, and film nominees within categories. It’s an interesting blend, with many IndieWire favorites up for awards, including “Get Out,” “Stanger Things,” “Atlanta,” “I Am Not Your Negro,” and many more. Check out the full winners list, which was updated in real time as the ceremony was hosted Adam DeVine at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
