Fans of the Broadway musical Hamilton are pretty fanatical. They certainly span a lot of age groups.
But how do those fans stack up against the fans of, say, the TV series Scream? Or the comic book Jessica Jones?
Those and other pop phenomena are nominated for the 2016 MTV Best New Fandom of the Year award, given as part of the overall MTV Fandom Awards to be chosen at San Diego Comic-Con July 21. The awards will be televised July 24 at 8 PM ET on MTV.
The contest is designed to recognize fans whose “tenacious excitement pushes movies, TV, music, theatre and video games from subculture to mainstream worldwide success.” Voting is already underway.
