This show is about fandom and the stars come out to celebrate that. The nominees and the content are naturally diverse and eclectic because we’re a true reflection of real movie-going audience.”

This year the MTV Movie Awards are also introducing two new categories that celebrate authentic narratives – “True Story” and “Documentary.” Official sponsors of the “2016 MTV Movie Awards” include M&M’S Brand, Mountain Dew and Taco Bell.
