Los Angeles, CA (May 2, 2017) – MTV today announced the addition of two brand-new categories, ‘Trending’ and ‘Best Musical Moment’ to the inaugural  “2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards.”  These genius, snackable moments have dominated the internet through clicks, shares, memes and social chatter, and deserve to be recognized alongside the more traditional Movie and TV categories.  To vote, for ‘Trending,’ go to MTV.com and voting for ‘Best Musical Moment’ will take place exclusively on the next-generation entertainment social network musical.ly.  Voting ends for both categories on Sunday, May 7.  The “2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards” airs LIVE from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, Calif. on Sunday, May 7 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.

 

‘Trending,’ is presented by Time Inc.’s INSTANT, a social-first media outlet dedicated to covering the lives and projects of the Internet famous. As part of a robust marketing partnership for the show with People and Entertainment Weekly, ‘Trending’ will commend some of the greatest viral moments in movies and television from the past year.  The ‘Trending’ winner will be announced during the “MTV Movie &TV Awards Festival” prior to the main show telecast.

Following the success of the MTV VMA “Song of the Summer” integration with musical.ly, MTV is teaming up with the platform once again to unveil the ‘Best Musical Moment’ category. ‘Best Musical Moment’ celebrates the use of song in movies and television. To vote, fans create custom musical.ly videos using songs from their favorite nominated moments.  Each video submission serves as a vote in the category, and members of the musical.ly community can also use “likes” to bolster their favorite nominees position.  The ‘Best Musical Moment’ winner will be revealed during the main show and handed the iconic golden popcorn during a custom segment.

Throughout the weekend of May 6, one or more musical.ly influencers will join MTV to capture behind the scenes footage from rehearsals as well as stream from Sunday’s red carpet on their live.ly account from the MTV digital platform.

The MTV and musical.ly partnership will continue to evolve as the two companies work together on a premium content project slated to launch next quarter.

She finally came around to zombies, but NO clowns...she loathes clowns. She loves to read and write, watches way too much TV, and likes many genres of film. She's enjoys music of the Trance/Electronica variety (and let's be honest, most music from the 80s). She also has a wicked sweet tooth. Cupcakes beware.
