Vanessa Hudgens to Host 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards
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: Greatest of All Time special, which took the place of that year’s awards show due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As previously announced, MTV made some changes to its Movie & TV Awards for 2022. It will air both the original show and a new spinoff, Movie & TV Awards – Unscripted ,, on 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 show.
Immediately following the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards, MTV will air the Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted, celebrating reality television, beginning at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Additional details for both events, including the Unscripted host, will be announced later this week.
The executive producers for both shows include MTV’s Bruce Gillmer and Wendy Plaut, Vanessa WhiteWolf, and Den Of Thieves’ Jesse Ignjatovic as well as Barb Bialkowski and Barb Bialkowski. Jackie Barba and Alicia Portugal are the producers, while Lisa Lauricella is the music talent executive.
Fans were able to vote for their favorites across 26 gender-neutral categories at vote.mtv.com. Voting began on May 11 and closed on 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 honored work in television as well as film.
Spider-Man: No Way Home, which was the top-grossing film released in 2021, led the pack of scripted nominees with seven nods. It was followed by Euphoria HTML6_ and The Batman (four).
RuPaul’s Drag Race was a leader in unscripted shows with four nods. It was followed by Selling , and Summer House , each with three nods.
MTV will air the two shows simultaneously, rather than on consecutive nights. MTV also added six new categories, including two with a strong music focus, best song and best documentary.
The two shows will air live starting at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Both shows will simulcast across 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.
