The MTV Movie & TV Awards is recognizing a lot of LGBTQ+ projects and individuals this year, and we love to see it!
Though it was originally launched as an awards show for just movies back in 1992, the MTV Movie & TV Awards has expanded to include categories for television over the years. Thankfully, there is a significant presence of LGBTQ+ nominees in 2022 – from actors to reality stars to TV shows.
Leading the nominations are shows like RuPaul’s Drag Race and Euphoria, which put LGBTQ+ contestants and characters at the forefront. Alas, those are far from the only queer nominees who will be featured at this year’s ceremony!
Scroll through to see a full list of LGBTQ+ nominees at the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards.
Euphoria received a whopping seven nominations at the MTV Movies & TV Awards this year. Those categories include “Best Show,” “Best Performance in a Show” (for both Zendaya and Sydney Sweeney), “Best Kiss” (between Hunter Schafer and Dominic Fike), “Best Fight” (for Cassie versus Maddy), “Here for the Hookup,” and “Best Song” (for Dominic Fike’s “Little Star”).
RuPaul’s Drag Race has been nominated in five categories this year. The reality show is competing for “Best Competition Series,” “Best Reality Star” (Willow Pill), “Best Host” (RuPaul), “Best Fight” (for Bosco versus Lady Camden), and “Best Reality Return” (for Kylie Sonique Love on All Stars 6).
Chrishell Stause, who is currently dating nobinary Australian singer G Flip, was nominated twice at the MTV Movies & TV Awards for her appearance on Netflix's Selling Sunset. Categories include “Best Reality Star” and “Best Fight” (against Christine Quinn).
Another LGBTQ+ nominee in the “Breakthrough Performance” is Hannah Einbinder for her performance on Hacks.
