(Universal Pictures via AP) Lots of walls are tumbling at the newly christened MTV Movie & TV Awards. In addition to the previously announced expansion to cover television and streaming, the awards will mix film, TV and streaming nominees together in some categories, and gender divisions are being eliminated: This year’s May 7 ceremony will do away with Best Actress and Best Actor categories, with performers competing in non-gendered races for Best Actor statues.

That means the Best Actor in a Movie category pits Daniel Kaluuya against Emma Watson, Hailee Steinfeld, Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy and Taraji P. Henson, while the Best Actors in a Show (TV and streaming) are Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Gina Rodriguez, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Mandy Moore and Millie Bobby Brown.

Overall, Get Out, Jordan Peele’s crazy good horror/comedy/social commentary hybrid, leads the pack of nominees, scoring six nods including Best Picture and Best Actor (Kaluuya).

Beauty and the Beast and Stranger Things follow with four nominations each, with Atlanta, Game of Thrones, Hidden Figures, Logan, Moonlight and This Is Us each taking three.

The MTV Movie & TV Awards airs live Sunday, May 7, 8 pm ET/PT from the Shrine Auditorium in L.A. Adam Devine, nominated for Comedy Central’s Workaholics, will host. Deadline reported on the 25-year-old MTV Movie Awards in March, when the expansion to TV categories was announced, along with news that the show would return to its live roots.

Also new this year, the awards will combine nominees from film, TV and streaming in the various “fan-favorite” categories like Best Kiss, Best Hero and Best Villain. New categories include Show of the Year, Best Host, Best Reality Competition, Tearjerker and Next Generation.

MTV also is introducing what the network describes as two “new and timely” categories: Best American Story, awarded to the show or film that showcases America at its best (“open and diverse”) and Best Fight Against the System (characters who “best exemplify fighting against a system that tries to keep them down”).

Two additional categories will be revealed closer to the show. Fans can begin voting in other categories immediately at MTV.com.

Casey Patterson serves as Executive Producer for the second consecutive year, with MTV’s Garrett English. Melanie Block is Executive in Charge of Production, Wendy Plaut serves as i Co-Executive Producer and Executive in Charge of Celebrity Talent. Amani Duncan is Executive in Charge of Music Talent.
