The popcorn is on the stove, the sweatpants are on your legs: Congratulations, youâ€™re just about ready for the MTV Movie & TV Awards! Now, you just need a guide to hold your hand as we toast all of TVâ€™s most side-splitting, drama-filled moments. Look no further than Nikki Glaser, who will host the first-ever MTV Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted.
The inaugural show celebrates everything reality TV, whether itâ€™s the high-glam competition that is RuPaulâ€™s Drag Race or the highly inedible dishes created on Selena + Chef. And truly, there is nobody more fit to hold down the evening than Glaser, whose no-holds-barred, bitingly honest style of comedy has brought her from nightly standup performances to the upper echelons of streaming with her Netflix special Banginâ€™.
Sheâ€™ll go all the way off â€” script, that is â€” when the special airs on Monday, May 17. It will follow the airing of the annual MTV Movie & TV Awards on Sunday, May 16, as part of a massive two-day event honoring the biggest and boldest on-screen moments, and the brightest stars who brought them to life. Saturday Night Live comedian and Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones will host the MTV Movie & TV Awards live from Los Angeles.
The nominees at the first-of-its-kind show run the gamut from MTVâ€™s own The Challenge, the judge-against-judge brawl between Legendaryâ€™s Law Roach and Dominique Jackson, to the celebratory makeovers of Queer Eye. There are also nods for the best hosts, including RuPaul and Nailed It!â€™s Nicole Byer, and breakthrough social media sensations like Bretman Rock and Rickey Thompson. Check out all the nominees here.
The MTV Movie & TV Awards will air live on MTV on Sunday, May 16 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
