MTV Movie Awards 2016: Complete List of Nominees

The force was strong with “Star Wars” as the sci-fi epic dominated the 2016 MTV Movie Awards nominations on Tuesday morning, which were announced via Snapchat Discover.

“The Force Awakens” led the way with 11 nods, followed by another box office smash, “Deadpool,” which scored eight noms. “Avengers: Age of Ultron” was in third with six nominations. All three films are up for the night’s biggest award — movie of the year — alongside “Creed,” “Jurassic World” and “Straight Outta Compton.”

The MTV Movie Awards added two new categories this year: true story and documentary.
