MTV Movie & TV Awards 2023: Here are all the winners

The 2023 MTV Movie & TV Awards looked significantly less glittery than usual on Sunday, as organizers cobbled together a scaled-down, moderator-free ceremony in the wake of the ongoing writers’ strike.

It was announced last week that the show would air as a pre-taped special, as several contestants – including host Drew Barrymore – dropped out in solidarity with the writers. Those hoping for the usual spate of eyebrow-raising fashion moments were also disappointed, as MTV scrapped all red carpet plans as well.

“We’re turning away from a live event that still allows us to produce a memorable night full of exclusive insights, irreverent categories our audience awaits and countless moments that will both surprise and delight,” Bruce Gilmer , one of the executive producers at MTV, said in a statement.

It was a hard hit for an awards show known more for its spontaneous, headline-grabbing moments than any demonstrable measure of cinematic merit, and the result had the disjointed feel of a program that might have aired in the early days of COVID. 19 pandemic. Barrymore still appeared in a number of comedic segments that were believed to have been filmed before her decision to sign off, and much of the show was devoted to “flashback” footage from previous ceremonies.

Still, there were some memorable moments. A-list actors Tom Cruise and Pedro Pascal were among those making virtual appearances. Viewers also got their first look at the “Kiss the Girl” number from Disney’s highly anticipated live-action remake of The Little Mermaid, as well as “Transformers: Rise of the Beasts‘ and an upcoming episode of Showtime’s ‘Yellowjackets’.

However, the writers’ strike remained on everyone’s lips – with Jennifer Coolidge to acknowledge it right in one of her acceptance speeches.

“Almost every great comedy starts with great writers,” she said. “I stand before you tonight, side by side with my sisters and brothers from the [Writers Guild of America] who are fighting right now – fighting for artists’ rights everywhere.”
