Los Angeles — Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the leading nominee at next month's MTV Movie Awards, where it will compete with Creed, Deadpool, Jurassic World, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Straight Outta Compton for movie of the year.

MTV announced the nominations Tuesday for the 25th anniversary of its Movie Awards, via Snapchat — a first for a national awards show.

The 2016 MTV Movie Awards hosted by Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart takes place on Sunday 10 April 10 outdoors on the Warner Bros. backlot in Burbank, California. 

Tune in for the primetime premiere of the show on MTV (DStv 130) on Monday 11 April at 20:30 (Red Carpet Show) and 21:00 (2016 MTV Movie Awards).

The 11 bids for The Force Awakens include multiple nominations for stars Daisy Ridley and John Boyega.

The MTV Movie Awards added two new categories this year: true story and documentary. Fans can vote for their favorites in all categories online. 

In another first for the show, MTV has partnered with Google for voting on the coveted "Movie of the Year" category, allowing fans to vote by typing keywords, "MTV Vote," into the Google search bar.  In other categories, fans can get loud and make their voices heard starting today, across mobile, tablet and desktop devices at www.MovieAwards.MTV.com, until Monday 21 March.
