The “Cash Me Outside” Meme Is An MTV Movie & TV Awards Nominee, How Bout Dat?

Say hello to two new categories: Trending and Best Musical Moment

Danielle Bregoli's 15 seconds of fame on Dr. Phil spawned hundreds of memes, brought her internet-celeb status, and now an awards-show nomination. That's right, the "Cash Me Outside" girl is officially an MTV Movie & TV Awards nominee, thanks to two new voting categories revealed Tuesday (May 2). Winners will be announced Sunday, May 7, either before or during the show, which airs live at 8 p.m. Eastern.
