Get ready, Directioners, Shondaland fans and, well, whatever Mad Max followers call themselves (war boys?). It’s time for the second annual MTV Fandom Awards, celebrating fan passion for everything from movies and TV shows to Vine stars and boy bands. This year, Tyler Posey of Teen Wolf and Bella Thorne of the upcoming series Scream will host the show, the network announced Tuesday. 

And with a year in intense fandom action, MTV has added four new categories: “Social Superstar of the Year,” “Animation Fandom of the Year,” “Best Fandom Army,” and “Best Revival Fandom.” The biggest category, “Fandom of the Year,” will announce nominees in four sub-genres—movies, TV dramas, TV comedies, and reality—at a later date to allow for bracket-style voting.

To vote in each category, head to MTV’s Fandom Awards site, which will close July 8 at 6 p.m. ET. The awards will take place July 9 at San Diego Comic Con, and will air on MTV on Sunday, July 12, at 8 p.m. ET. Below, the nominees:
