2023 MTV Movie & TV Awards rewind
Due to the Hollywood writers' strike, America's sweetheart (and three-time MTV Movie & TV Award winner) Drew Barrymore did not host this year as originally announced.
This meant that the 2023 MTV Movie & TV Awards was hostless for the first time in its 31-year history. As this year's scheduled presenters also dropped out in solidarity with the writers' strike, it also meant that the 2023 show was presented as a pre-taped special with winners announced throughout the course of the evening.
2023 MTV Movie & TV Award nominations (also see WINNERS, below) had Top Gun: Maverick, Stranger Things and The Last of Us among the top nominees with six nods each. The White Lotus and Wednesday closely followed with four noms..
Jersey Shore Family Vacation, RuPaul’s Drag Race, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules were all tied in the unscripted categories with two nominations each.
The recipient of the Comedic Geinus Award this year went to (who else?) funny lady Jennifer Coolidge.
Top Gun: Maverick,The Last of Us and Wednesday lead the pack at the 2023 MTV Moive & TV Awards.
Just up ahead, see the complete list of nominees (and big winners at the 2023 MTV Movie & TV Awards, along with fun facts and related resources on the "Oscars for millennials."
All about the MTV Movie & TV Awards
Over the years, the MTV Movie & TV Awards has been billed as the alternative to traditional award shows.
The current trend for irreverent humor on mainstream awards shows can be traced back to MTV, which properly gets credit for deconstructing the format.
Honors for directing, makeup, or technical achievement do not make the cut at MTV. Instead, the MTV Movie & TV Awards puts the spotlight on performances that are truly crowd pleasing -- such as "Best Kiss", "Best Hero" and "Best Villain".
In short, MTV never pretends to be an industry insider. It just knows what its target audience likes. Of course, there are bills to pay - so product placement, in the form of trailers for summer blockbusters, are also a major part of the springtime awards broadcast.
In 2017, the MTV Movie Awards became the MTV Movie & TV Awards - with news that it was adding favorite television categories to the list of nominees. More newsworthy, that same year men and women began competing equally in the acting categories in another trailblazing awards show first.
DID YOU KNOW? MTV Movie & TV Awards fun facts
• When a fully-dressed Zac Efron accepted his Best Shirtless Performance Award in 2014, he tried to ignore the crowd's pleas to "take it off". Then, suddenly, a lusty Rita Ora appeared on stage to make the audience's wish come true -- adding to a long list of MTV Movie Awards' most memorable moments.
• The MTV Movie Awards are famous for steamy makeout sessions, but the makeout scene between Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams was one for the history books as winners for Best Kiss (for "The Notebook"). In 2005 their live reenactment was even more notable for the fact that off-screen they really couldn't stand each other.
• Not many actors walk away with three MTV Movie Awards in one night, but Robert Pattinson has done it twice. In 2010, Pattinson won Best Male Performance, Best Kiss (with Kristen Stewart) and the Global Superstar Award. The following year, he repeated for Best Male Performance, Best Kiss (with Kristen Stewart) and added Best Fight to his 2011 list of accolades.
