Mark your calendars for the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards

This year's ceremony takes place across two nights on Sunday, May 16 and Monday, May 17.

Wandavision is one of the most nominated shows this year, with five nods. Emily in Paris, RuPaul's Drag Race and The Boys trail closely behind with four each. On the film front, both Borat Subsequent Movie Film and Judas and the Black Messiah earned multiple nods. 

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, MTV opted against hosting 2020's traditional ceremony in favor of a smaller-scale special dedicated to unforgettable pop culture moments across the past four decades. This year, however, event organizers have promised an epic live show unlike any other they've done before.

The 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards will be broadcast from the Hollywood Palladium starting at 9 p.m. EST/PST on May 16, where the winners of scripted categories will be announced. Then, on May 17 at 9 p.m. EST/PST, the winners of unscripted categories will take the spotlight during MTV's inaugural Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted show. 

Check out the complete list of nominees below!
