Johannesburg - MTV has announced the nominees and the host for the annual 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards.

To revamp the awards the cable has included television, combined male and female nominees into one catergory and added some new categories. 

Meet the host

Comedian, film and TV star Adam Devine will host young Hollywood’s party of the year at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards.

"I’m so excited to host the '2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards', said Adam Devine. "I have dreamed about it since I was a teenager. It was usually a dry dream, but I would be remiss if I didn’t admit that sometimes it was wet."

When and where

The ceremony will take place on 7 May and broadcast live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

The show will air LIVE on MTV (Dstv 130) on 8 May at 02:00 and will repeat later that evening on both MTV (DStv 130) and MTV Base (DStv Channel 322) at 21:00.
