10 MTV Movie & TV Awards for NYFA Community

New York Film Academy (NYFA) Community Scores Ten MTV Movie & TV Award Nominations

May 16, 2019 The nominees for this year’s MTV Movie & TV Awards have been announced and feature ten nominations for projects that members of the New York Film Academy (NYFA) community, including alumni, faculty, and guest speakers, have worked on. Additionally, NYFA Acting for Film camp alum Lana Condor earned her first nomination for the award show’s signature statuette, the Golden Popcorn.


Originally just the MTV Movie Awards, the ceremony first launched in 1992 before rebranding to the Movie & TV Awards to reflect the current age of streaming and peak TV. This year’s ceremony will be hosted by Shazam! star Zachary Levi in Santa Monica on June 15, and will air two days later on MTV.

The trendy award show prides itself on its progressive categories, using genderless groupings and typically not differentiating between media platforms, choosing instead to group broadcast, streaming, and theatrically released content together.

NYFA Acting for Film camp alum Lana Condor was nominated with her To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before co-star Noah Centineo for Best Kiss. The Netflix original film is also up for Best Movie, competing with BlacKkKlansman (co-starring NYFA guest speaker Adam Driver), Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Us, and mega blockbuster Avengers: Endgame.


Also nominated for Best Kiss are Jason Momoa & Amber Heard for the DC crowdpleaser Aquaman. NYFA Australia 1-Year Filmmaking alum Damian Lang worked on that film, as well as several others on Gold Coast’s Village Roadshow backlot.

The Best Show category features Game of Thrones and Riverdale competing with Big Mouth, Schitt’s Creek, and The Haunting of Hill House. Riverdale stars previous NYFA guest speakers Ashleigh Murray and Casey Cott. NYFA 3D Animation & VFX alum Alex LoRusso worked on some visual effects for the last few episodes of Game of Thrones’ final season, including The Last of the Starks and game-changing entry The Bells.

The MTV Movie & TV Awards also featured some documentaries, including RBG and Free Solo. Alex Honnold, the rock climber who free climbed El Capitan in Free Solo, was nominated for Best Real-Life Hero. The gripping documentary that captured his climb was edited by NYFA Documentary Filmmaking instructor and Academy Award nominee Bob Eisenhardt.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Supreme Court Justice profiled in RBG, was also nominated for Best Real-Life Hero. The film, shot by cinematography and NYFA Documentary Filmmaking instructor Claudia Raschke, racked up an impressive amount of MTV Award nominations. These include Best Documentary, Best Fight (for Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality), and Most Meme-able Moment (for her nickname The Notorious RBG.)
