The countdown is on for the MTV Fandom Awards at San Diego Comic-Con — and this year’s show is taking the fandom to a new level. On Wednesday, MTV announced the nominees and two new categories, Bandom of the Year and Animation Fandom of the Year.

MTV designed the show to recognize fans whose “tenacious excitement pushes movies, TV, music, theater, and video games from subculture to mainstream worldwide success.” The 2016 nominees include everything from Broadway’s Hamilton (Best New Fandom of the Year) to Game of Thrones‘ “Resurrection of Jon Snow” (Fan Freak Out of the Year).

All Comic-Con badge holders are invited to the MTV’s Fandom Fest celebration at Petco Park on Thursday, July 21 at 6:30 p.m. PT prior to the show’s 8 p.m. taping. Fans at home will get their chance to watch the show on Sunday, July 24 at 8 p.m. ET on MTV.

Voting for most categories kicks off Wednesday at fandomawards.mtv.com and will continue through Wednesday, July 20.

Nominees for two additional categories will be announced on Friday, July 8. The Fandom of the Year category “will feature 32 nominees going head-to-head across multiple platforms in a special social tournament spanning movies, TV dramas, TV comedies and, for the first time ever, video games,” MTV said. As for Ship of the Year, fans will cast their votes on Tumblr.
