Happy, sad, surprised, confused, bemused, disgusted, forlorn, angry — go ahead and express them all, as there is no emotion that doesn’t instantly apply to MTV’s new Movie & TV Awards category: trending.
That’s it. “Trending.” MTV announced Tuesday that it would be adding the category ahead of Sunday’s ceremony.
If you need further explanation as to what constitutes “trending,” just look at these nominees:
“Sean Spicer Press Conference” feat. Melissa McCarthy — Saturday Night Live (NBC)

“Run The World (Girls)” feat. Channing Tatum and Beyonce — Lip Sync Battle (SPIKE)
“Wheel of Musical Impressions with Demi Lovato” — The Tonight Show (NBC)
