Mixing a number of already award-winning films and several of 2014’s biggest blockbusters, MTV announced the nominees for its Movie Awards on Wednesday.

The nominees include several Oscar winners like American SniperWhiplash, and Boyhood, though the leaders of the pack are all summer box office hits. Guardians of the GalaxyThe Fault in Our Stars, and Neighbors each garnered seven nominations.

While the brunt of the awards season has concluded, the 2015 MTV Movie Awards will allow some of the last year’s most memorable films—and movies like The Boy Next Door—to have a chance to be honored one more time.

Unfortunately, everything is not awesome with the nominees, as The Lego Movie was shut out of the awards entirely. To see what was nominated, check out the full list below and find out who wins when the Movie Awards air on April 12.
