To avoid a conflict with Sunday Night Football, NBC moved the 2014 Emmy Awards telecast up a month, to August 25. But in swerving clear of the football juggernaut, the Emmys steered right into the lane of the landmark cultural occasion of late August: the MTV VMAs, scheduled for one day prior.
It got us thinking: What if we took things to their logical conclusion and handed MTV control of the Emmys, as well?
Using categories from both the VMAs and their summertime counterpart, the MTV Movie Awards, we've imagined what would happen if the cable network was in charge of handing out trophies for everything that's on TV, not just music videos.

Say, which shows are nominated at the Emmys this year?
You may be able to name a few, but we're betting you can't remember every single series nominated in the Outstanding Drama, Outstanding Comedy and Outstanding Miniseries categories this year.
So, we've built this infographic to test your TV knowledge. Can you get the names of all 18 shows just from one object or symbol? It's harder than it looks, so to help you out, we've listed each show's network underneath.
Happy guessing! (The answers are at the bottom, if you want to cheat.)
