It’s less than ten hours before the 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards kick off at 7 p.m. Formerly known as the MTV Movie Awards, the network announced in March that they would be expanding their programming to include television awards. Which is an incredibly smart move (and way to get viewers) due to the  rise of television and slew of award-winning shows like Stranger Things, Mad Men, House of Cards and Game of Thrones.

Men, women and gender non-conforming nominees will compete alongside each other in the acting categories for the first time. Categories where previously separated into Best Actress and Best Actor.

New voting categories include two new categories for entertainment highlighting social justice issues and activism in addition to Next Generation star.

Noah Cyrus, Big Sean, Camila Cabello and Pitbull are this year’s performers.

Some voting categories have already closed but plenty a still open to cast your vote. You can vote here.
