I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

Best Picture Oscar winner Moonlight received three MTV Movie & TV Awards nominees today including a nod for best kiss.

The memorable kissing scene on a Miami beach between teenagers played by Ashton Sanders and Jharrel Jerome will compete with sexy smooches between Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling (Moonlight), Emma Watson and Dan Stevens (Beauty and the Beast), Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard (Empire) and Zac Efron and Anna Kendricks (Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates).
This is the first year the MTV awards have blended movies with television in some categories and removed gender in others.

Moonlight was also nominated in the new Best American Story category where it will compete with four TV series including the transgender-themed Transparent.

And finally, Moonlight got a nod in the ‘tearjerker’ category for the scene in which Paula (Oscar nominee Naomie Harris) tells Chiron (Trevante Rhodes) that she loves him.

Despite its critical acclaim and Oscar pedigree, Moonlight has managed to gross less than $30 million at the US box office.
So it comes as little surprise that the film was not nominated for Movie of the Year alongside the major hits Beauty and the Beast, Get Out, Logan, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and The Edge of Seventeen.

Also of LGBTI interest: Ellen DeGeneres and RuPaul Charles will compete in the Best Host category alongside John Oliver, Samantha Bee and Trevor Noah.

RuPaul’s Drag Race is among the contenders for Best Reality Show Competition and This is Everything: Gigi Gorgeous is nominated for Best Documentary.

The awards will be handed out on 7 May.
