'Get Out' Dominates MTV Movie Awards

Jordan Peele's woke horror film leads with six nominations.

Just days after Get Out made history by becoming the highest grossing debut film for a writer-director with an original screenplay (beating out The Blair Witch Project's 20-year record), Jordan Peele's smash hit got even more fantastic news by nabbing six nominations for the upcoming MTV Movie & TV Awards.

These nominations are just another sign of Get Out's relevance as it continues to change the landscape of Hollywood with every passing week. 

The film has been nominated for Movie of the Year, Best Movie Actor (David Kaluuya), Best Villain (Allison Williams), Best Comedic Performance (Lil Rel Howery), Best Duo (Kaluuya and Howery) and Best Fight Against the System, which has replaced the Best Fight category, and will recognize a movie or TV show whose characters best exemplify — you guessed it — fighting against the system.

Kaluuya also nabbed a nomination for the Next Generation award, which recognizes rising stars in Hollywood. He will go up against Issa Rae and Yara Shahidi, among others, in this category.

This is just the latest victory for Get Out, as its box office continues to grow to $168 million, and boasts a rare 99 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
