Vanessa Hudgens will host – Billboard
Vanessa Hudgens is set to host the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards live from the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif. on Sunday, June 5. Two years ago, Hudgens hosted the MTV Movie & TV Awards: Best of All Time special, which replaced that year’s awards show due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As previously announced, MTV has made some changes to its Movie & TV Awards for 2022. Most notably, this show and a spinoff it introduced last year, Film and TV Awards: Unscripted, will air the same night. Last year, the two shows aired on successive nights – Sunday May 16 and Monday May 17. Leslie Jones hosted the Movie & TV Awards last year. Nikki Glaser hosted the Unscripted Pin up.
Immediately following the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards, MTV will air the Film and TV Awards: Unscripted, celebrating reality TV, starting at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Additional details for both events, including the Unscripted host, will be announced later this week.
Executive producers for both shows are MTV’s Bruce Gillmer, Wendy Plaut and Vanessa WhiteWolf and Den Of Thieves’ Jesse Ignjatovic and Barb Bialkowski. Jackie Barba and Alicia Portugal are the executives in charge of production and Lisa Lauricella is the musical talent director for both events.
Fans were able to vote for their favorites in 26 gender-neutral categories on vote.mtv.com. Voting began May 11 and ended May 18.
The show originated as the MTV Movie Awards in 1992. It was renamed the MTV Movie & TV Awards for its 26th edition in 2017 to signify that it now honors work in television as well as film.
Spider-Man: No Coming Home, which was the highest-grossing film released in 2021, led the field of scripted nominees with seven nods. It was followed by Euphoria (six) and The Batman (four).
RuPaul’s Drag Race was the leader of the unscripted shows, with four nods. It was followed by sell sunset and summer housewith three nods each.
In addition to airing both shows on the same night, instead of on successive nights, MTV is adding six new categories, two of which are heavily music-focused – Best Song and Best Music Documentary.
Both shows will air live on Sunday, June 5 starting at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Both shows will air simultaneously on BET, BET Her, CMT, Comedy Central, Logo, MTV2, Nick at Nite, Paramount Network, Pop, TV Land and VH1 and will also air internationally on MTV in over 170 countries.
