Looks like Jordan Peele‘s well-received Get Out is taking the lead for most award nominations for this year’s first-ever MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The rebranded awards ceremony has announced that the successful directorial debut from Peele has been nominated for six awards including Movie of the Year; Best Movie Actor (Daniel Kaluuya); Best Villain (Allison Williams); Best Comedic Performance (Lil Rel Howery); Best Duo (Kaluuya and Howery); and “Best Fight Against the System,” which replaces “Best Fight,” and recognizes a movie or TV show whose characters best exemplify fighting against a system that tries to keep them down.

Get Out, which has become the highest grossing film for an original screenplay since its release, will soon be out on DVD.

The film is arriving on Digital HD on May 9, and on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on May 23.

Included in the release will be the following bonus features:

— Alternate Ending with Commentary by Writer/Director Jordan Peele
— Deleted Scenes with Commentary by Writer/Director Jordan Peele
— “Unveiling the Horror of Get Out“: Go behind-the-scenes for the making of Get Out
— Q&A Discussion with Writer/Director Jordan Peele and the Cast: Director/Writer Jordan Peele sits down with the cast to answer fan questions on the film hosted by Chance the Rapper
— Feature Commentary with Writer/Director Jordan Peele

So not only will viewers be able to see scenes that did not make the final cut, but also the alternate ending that was reportedly much darker than the one shown in theaters.

This different ending reportedly featured protagonist Chris apprehended by police and sent to jail for the rest of his life for murdering the Armitage family.

Hopefully, these award nominations hint at much more to come for Get Out when awards season makes its return next year.

The MTV Movie & TV Awards will be airing on Sunday, May 7.
