Ditching gendered categories has become more common with awards shows.

Horror film Get Out is now leading nominations with a total of six nods, while the live action remake of Beauty And The Beast and Netflix sci-fi series Stranger Things are both on four. Winners are chosen by fans voting online.

The two other new TV categories are host and reality competition, and the three other new general categories are American story, next generation and tearjerker. MTV said "best fight against the system" (formerly best fight) will recognize the TV show or movie whose characters exemplify a fight "against a system that tries to keep them down".
