Star Wars: The Force Awakens may not have earned a Best Picture nomination at the 2016 Oscars, but it’ll have its shot at a top movie prize at this year’s MTV Movie Awards.

The box office record-breaking Star Wars film leads the pack with 11 MTV nominations, including one for Movie of the Year. Deadpool follows next with eight total noms, including Movie of the Year and Best Male Performance nods. Guess Reynolds’ last-minute Oscars campaign paid off in other ways.

The Force Awakens and Deadpool face off in Movie of the Year against Avengers: Age of UltronCreedJurassic World, and Straight Outta Compton, the last of which garnered four total nominations. And though the Movie of the Year category looks nothing like its Best Picture counterpart from the Oscars, plenty of Oscar nominees and winners appear in other categories, from Amy in the Documentary category to Leonardo DiCaprio in Best Male Performance for The Revenant — and alongside the film’s CGI bear in the Best Fight category. 

Read below for a full list of the nominees. The 2016 MTV Movie Awards will air on April 10 at 8 p.m. ET, celebrating the show’s 25th anniversary with hosts Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart. Fans can vote now at the award show’s official site, while Movie of the Year can also be voted on by Googling the phrase “MTV Vote,” and voting right on the Google search results page.
