LOS ANGELES (AP) – The MTV Movie & TV Awards return on Sunday with a live show that could see “Spider-Man: No Way Home” get some trophies.
The feeling of 2021 enters the program as the main nominee with seven. With nearly $ 1.9 billion at the box office, “No Way Home” was the biggest movie of the year and a fan favorite, though it was largely ignored by major awards shows. .
Celebrating MTV movies and TV shows is a lighter and cooler show. Vanessa Hudgens is hosting this year and the show will be broadcast live from Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, California starting at 8pm Eastern on MTV, BET, Comedy Central, VH1 and more Paramount chains.
Jack Black will receive the Comic Genius honor, while Jennifer Lopez is the winner of this year’s Generation Award, which celebrates actors whose diverse contributions to both film and television have made them household names.
HBO’s “Euphoria” has six nominations while “The Batman” has four. In total, 26 awards will be presented in gender-neutral categories during the two hours of the show.
This year, the show has added awards for best song and “Here for the Hookup.”
Diplo and Swae Lee will perform “Tupelo Shuffle” from director Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming biopic “Elvis.”
The ceremony returns to live format after being pre-recorded for several years.
