Complete list of 'MTV Movie and TV Awards 2021' nominations announced!

Mark your calendars for the 2021 MTV Movie and TV Awards! The nominations for the award ceremony are in and they're packed with A-list talent.

As per Variety, on Monday, nominations for this year's ceremony, taking place across two nights on, May 16 and, May 17, were unveiled.

Television dominated the roster of nominees for the ceremony, which is returning after a year-long hiatus due, at least in part, to the COVID-19 pandemic.

But with the kind of crowd-pleasing, popcorn-ready films that the MTV awards show normally celebrates mostly delayed due to the pandemic, TV has taken a front seat this year.

Leading this year's roster of nominees: Marvel's Disney Plus series WandaVision, which earned five nods -- including best show, best performance in a show (Elizabeth Olsen), best hero (Teyonah Parris), best villain (Kathryn Hahn) and best fight (Wanda vs. Agatha).

Receiving four nods were Netflix's Emily In Paris (which is produced by MTV Studios) and Amazon Prime Video's The Boys.

Earning three are Netflix's Bridgerton, Disney Plus' The Mandalorian and the most-recognized film of the year, Amazon Studios' Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.'

MTV also announced the nominees for the first-ever edition of its spin-off ceremony Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted. In that show, VH1's RuPaul's Drag Race leads all nominees with four, followed by two for TLC's 90 Day Fiance, Netflix's Bling Empire, HBO Max's Legendary, VH1's Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, MTV's The Challenge, Netflix's Nailed It! and MTV's ubiquitous Ridiculousness.

Chadwick Boseman received a posthumous nomination in the movie performance category this year.

First-time nominees include Carey Mulligan, Zendaya, Anya Taylor-Joy, Emma Corrin, Michaela Coel, Anthony Mackie, Jack Quaid, Pedro Pascal, Teyonah Parris, Annie Murphy, Eric Andre, Leslie Jones, Paul Mescal, Rege-Jean Page, among many others.

The MTV Movie and TV Awards will be executive produced by Den of Thieves co-founder Jesse Ignjatovic and Barb Bialkowski on behalf of Den of Thieves.

Additional details about the 2021 MTV Movie and TV Awards and Movie and TV Awards: Unscripted, including hosts, presenters and more will be announced in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, MTV has opened up fan voting in 25 gender-neutral categories at vote.mtv.com through April 30.

For most of its existence, the ceremony was known as the MTV Movie Awards, taking advantage of the spring kickoff of the summer box office season. In 2017, the name was changed to the 'MTV Movie and TV Awards' and included television series for the first time.

Also that year, the network went gender-neutral, embracing a decision to merge male and female performers into singular categories. Last year, MTV decided to move the Movie and TV Awards to December, in order to capitalize on the start of movie awards season. But the pandemic put that decision on hold, and ultimately instead the network ran the special 'MTV Movie and TV Awards: Greatest of All Time', hosted by Vanessa Hudgens, in December.
