Things We Saw Today: MTV Movie & TV Awards Noms: WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Bridgerton, More

And Emily in Paris, too, for some reason.

WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Bridgerton.

MTV has revealed its nominations for the MTV Movie & TV Awards which is airing Sunday, May 16, according to Deadline. And honestly, there are some surprises on this list and some inevitable shows and movies that had to be nominated for the way they took fans by storm.

We’ll start with the good first. Disney+’s WandaVision leads with five nominations, for categories including Best Show, Best Performance in a Show for Elizabeth Olsen, Best Hero for Teyonah Parris, Best Villain for Kathryn Hahn, and Best Fight between Wanda and Agatha. And they are joined by Anthony Mackie’s performance in The Falcon and the Winter Solider for Best Hero and Best Duo.

The Boys, Amazon’s superhero hit series, followed with four nominations—including best show, best hero, and Best Villain. Bridgerton rightfully got nominated for Breakthrough Performance for Regé-Jean Page, Best Show, and Best Kiss. And Pedro Pascal is nominated for Best Hero in The Mandalorian and Best Duo via the relationship between Din Djarin and Grogu.

Then there’s the surprise nominations that I still can’t understand, namely Emily in Paris. The Netflix show garnered four nominations for Best Show, Best Kiss, Breakthrough Performance, and Best Duo. And I don’t know about you, but I don’t know a single person who has watched Emily in Paris and enjoyed it. So, its nomination remains a mystery, especially when compared to some of the real fan favorites in here.

Other noteworthy nominees for the MTV Movie & TV Awards include Chadwick Boseman, who received a posthumous nomination for his work in Ma Rainey’s Black BottomAlso, Carey Mulligan from Promising Young Woman, Anya Taylor-Joy from The Queen’s Gambit, and Michaela Coel from I May Destroy You received first-time nominees.

Fans, who drive this awards ceremony, can begin voting for their favorites today through April 30 at
