So 2018 may be the year of the dog, but at the box office, it’s the year of the Black Panther. Marvel’s superhero launched a solo movie franchise in February before getting a supporting role in Avengers: Infinity War. Now, Black Panther is leading all nominees for the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards.

MTV has announced that Black Panther is up for best movie, best performance, best hero, best villain, best onscreen team, scene stealer, and best fight. Infinity War walked away with nods for best villain, best movie, and best fight.

On the TV side, Stranger Things landed six nominations, including best show alongside Game of Thrones, Riverdale, Grown-ish, and 13 Reasons Why. Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown is also up for best performance in the non-gender specific category against Darren Criss (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story), Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why), Issa Rae (Insecure), and Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones).

Girls Trip star Tiffany Haddish is not only up for scene stealer and best comedic performance, she’s also hosting the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards. The event will take place on Monday, June 18 at 9pm EST/PST in Los Angeles.
