The MTV Movie Awards are now the MTV Movie & TV Awards. The nominations for the rebranded tradition were announced Thursday, and everyone’s favorite movie of the year, “Get Out,” led the pack with six nods. 

Unlike the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards, MTV’s prizes combine film and television in several categories, another signal that today it’s all just “content” anyway. Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” reboot and Netflix’s “Stranger Things” earned four nominations, while “Game of Thrones,” Oscar champ “Moonlight” and several other titles collected three each.

Adam Devine will host the ceremony on May 7.
