Elsewhere, ‘Emily in Paris’, ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’, and ‘The Boys’ have all received three nominations for the upcoming awards ceremony, which is being staged in Los Angeles in May.

‘Emily in Paris’ – the Netflix series that stars Lily Collins – has been nominated in the Best Show, Best Kiss, and Breakthrough Performance categories.

‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ is competing in the categories of Best Reality Cast, Best Competition Series and Best Host.

What’s more, the UK edition of the show – ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race UK’ – is in contention to win the Best International Reality Series gong.

Other contenders for the coveted accolade include ‘Love Island’, ‘Acapulco Shore’, and ‘Geordie Shore’.

In the film categories, ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’ – the mockumentary comedy that saw Sacha Baron Cohen reprise the role of Borat – has received three nods, including Best Movie, Breakthrough Performance, and Best Duo, for Sacha and Maria Bakalova.

‘Judas and the Black Messiah’ has garnered two nominations, while Chadwick Boseman – who passed away in August, at the age of 43 – has been given a posthumous nomination for his performance in ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’.

The Movie & TV Awards are being staged at the Palladium in Los Angeles.

The event is being held over two nights, with May 16 being set aside for the Movie & TV Awards telecast, while the following day will see the inaugural Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted, which is being billed as a celebration of all things reality TV.
