MTV has scrapped gender-specific categories for its upcoming Movie & TV Awards, dubbed the MTV Movie Awards in previous years, reports the AP. In place of the Best Actress and Best Actor categories, this year's awards will honor a non-gendered Best Actor in a Movie and Best Actor in a Show. There are also five new categories, per Mashable: Show of the Year, Best Host, Best Reality Competition, Tearjerker, and Next Generation.
The move follows the Grammy Awards' decision in 2011 to dump gender distinctions between male and female singers, collaborations, and groups. In another change, the Best Fight category has been renamed Best Fight the System in a nod to social activism. Actor and comedian Adam DeVine will host on May 7. (Read more MTV Movie Awards stories.)
