'Black Panther' and 'Stranger Things' are dominating the MTV Movie & TV Awards nominations.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe blockbuster has delighted audiences and critics, and now it has found itself on the shortlist for seven prizes at the upcoming event, including Best Movie and Best On-Screen Team.

Leading man Chadwick Boseman - who plays the titular superhero - is nominated for Best Performance in a Movie and Best Hero, while his castmates Michael B. Jordan and Letitia Wright are up for Best Villain Scene Stealer respectively.

Boseman and Winston Duke, who plays Wakanda warrior M'Baku, also find themselves nominated in the Best Fight category.

On the TV side of the awards, Netflix sci-fi horror series 'Stranger Things' is leading the way with nods in six categories.

As well as competing against the likes of 'Riverdale' and 'Game of Thrones' for Best Show, it's also nominated for Best On-Screen Team but it will have to beat the ensembles that feature in 'Black Panther', 'It', 'Ready Player One' and 'Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle'.

Millie Bobby Brown is up for Best Performance in a Show, while she and Finn Wolfhard are nominated for Best Kiss, and their co-star Noah Schnapp has a chance at a prize for the Most Frightened Performance.

Rounding off the show's nominations, Dacre Montgomery is on the shortlist for Scene Stealer along with 'Girls Trip' star Tiffany Haddish, 'Riverdale' actress Madelaine Petsch, Taika Waititi ('Thor: Ragnarok'), and 'Black Panther's' Wright.

Other notable nominees in the film categories include horror 'It' with four nods and 'Girls Trip', 'Avengers: Infinity War', 'Wonder Woman' and 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' which have all garnered three nominations.
