Talk about a dead pool! Yes, as proof of his cultural assimilation, Deadpool was been nominated for eight MTV Movie Awards as announced this morning by the so-called Music Television. Only Star Wars: The Force Awakens did better with 11 nominations, but both films will face-off against Avengers: Age of Ultron, Creed, Jurassic World, and Straight Outta Compton for Movie of the Year when Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart host the 2016 awards show next month. And on top of the usual categories like “Best Fight” and “Best Kiss”, MTV is also injecting some reality into this year’s program. Want the full list of nominees? Look below.

First of all, the Deadpool/Star Wars face-off will happen over several categories. Morena Baccarin will take on Daisy Ridley for Best Female Performance, John Boyega will duke it out against Ryan Reynolds for Best Action Performance, Kylo Ren Adam Driver will go up against Ajax Ed Skein to determine who the Best Villains is, and Deadpool Vs Ajax will fight with Rey Vs Kylo Ren for Best Fight. But there will also be internal fighting for Star Wars as both Ridley and Boyega are up for Breakthrough Performance, meanwhile, Reynolds got nominations for Best Male Performance, Best Comedic Performance, and shares a Best Kiss nod with Baccarin.

It was also a good day for Marvel Studios with six nominations for Age of Ultron. The cast has been nominated for Best Ensemble, but Chris Evans and James Spader were singled for individual achievement. Evans got a nod for Best Hero – where he’ll take on Ant-Man Paul Rudd for the title – and Spader got two for Best Villain and Best Virtual Performance. The smackdown between the Hulk and Iron Man will stand in competition for Best Fight.

Other highlights: Chris Pratt is up for Best Male Performance and Best Action Performance for Jurassic World; Charlize Theron picked up three nominations for Mad Max: Fury Road including Best Female Performance, Best Hero and Best Fight with Tom Hardy; and Alicia Vikander, Brie Larson and Leonardo DiCaprio will look to follow up Oscar wins by taking home some golden popcorn. Vikander is nominated for Best Female Performance for Ex Machina, Larson for Breakthrough Performance for Room, and DiCaprio for Best Male Performance and Best Fight (with the Bear) for The Revenant.

MTV is also adding two new categories to this year’s festivities: True Story, which is for a movie based on a, and Documentary, which should be self explanatory. Concussion, Joy, Steve Jobs, Straight Outta Compton, The Big Short and The Revenant are up for True Story while Amy, Cartel Land, He Named Me Malala, The Hunting Ground, The Wolfpack, and What Happened, Miss Simone? are up for Documentary.
