The team and I are proud to have successfully pivoted and delivered on what our fans have come to expect from the MTV Movie & TV Awards – a memorable night filled with exclusive sneak peaks, irreverent categories and blockbuster moments that celebrate the best of film and TV over the past year. We look forward to coming back next year bigger than ever with our host Drew Barrymore.- Bruce Gillmer
Pedro Pascal was the biggest winner of the night, taking home three awards. He won Best Hero, Best Duo with co-star Bella Ramsey, and Best HBO Series for The Last of Us. The cast of Vanderpump Rules also won, getting the popcorn award for Best Realy On-Screen Team during the "Scandoval." Jenna Ortega, Taylor Swift, and Selena Gomez were some of the other winners of the night.
Even though the MTV Movie & TV Awards did not air live this year. The parent business of MTV, Paramount Global, said on Friday that the annual event will be changed to a taped special.
As we carefully navigate how best to deliver the fan first awards' show we envisioned that our team has worked so hard to create, we're pivoting away from a live event that still enables us to produce a memorable night full of exclusive sneak peaks, irreverent categories our audience has come to expect, and countless moments that will both surprise and delight as we honor the best of film and TV over the past year- Bruce Gillmer
The new awards were given out through pre-recorded acceptance notes, which was a throwback to the Zoom-TV style of the pandemic.
MTV is still being watched. They say that on Sunday night, the 2023 MTV Movie & TV Awards 9% rise in viewers on 8 channels and Paramount Plus. Even though there was no host, no crowd, and no real show (just clips and pre-recorded acceptance speeches), this was the case. So, the people who made the 2023 MTV Movie & TV Awards were able to put on a show that was worth watching.
