The 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards are just around the corner, and once again Marvel and Netflix are the popular kids at the table. This year “Black Panther” might walk away with the most awards in film, and “Stranger Things” could be the easy winner in television. MTV confirmed the list of nominations for this year’s event, which is set for Monday, June 18 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

As we mentioned earlier “Black Panther” is the crowd-favorite going into the event, the film was nominated for Best Movie; Letitia Wright was nominated for Best Scene Stealer; and Michael B. Jordan picked up a nomination for Best Villain. Tiffany Haddish is hosting this year’s event, and she is in the running for Best Scene Stealer and Best Comedic Performance for her breakout role in “Girls Trip,” which was also nominated for Best Movie.

Netflix is basically a winner no matter what happens, since “13 Reasons Why,” “Stranger Things,” and “Black Mirror” have been nominated in multiple categories. The CW’s “Riverdale” is in the running this year, and the popular YA drama could cause a few upset in popular categories. You will find all the nominations below, and you can start voting today.
