Chris Rock did a fantastic job at skewering the 2016 Academy Awards for nominating white-only actors, but—let’s be real—the issue is symptomatic of a larger issue in Hollywood, one that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has unanimously voted to fix, by doubling the number of women and diverse members by 2020.

Still, other awards shows are proving that they don’t need anything fixed, and have the ability to recognize the year’s best performances and films based on their value, like the 2016 MTV Movie Awards, whose nominations were announced today and include both black and white actors, as well as movies that some say were “snubbed” at the Oscars (*cough “Straight Out of Compton” *cough).

“This show is about fandom, and the stars come out to celebrate that,” Casey Patterson, executive producer, said in a release. “The nominees and the content are naturally diverse and eclectic because we’re a true reflection of real movie-going audiences.”

The 2016 MTV Movie Awards is set to be cohosted by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart and will air on April 10.
