The time has come for yet another MTV Movie Awards show. This year, the network has pulled out all the stops, recruiting A-list performers and presenters to celebrate this year’s most popular films and their stars.
The show was taped Saturday at the Warner Brothers Lot in Burbank, California, but it will air on TV and online Sunday. Pre-ceremony coverage will begin at 7:30 p.m. ET, while the actual award show will start at 8 p.m. ET. Those without access to a television set can catch the show on a live stream on MTV’s website. This option is available to all viewers with web access; no service provider information or login is required.
The 23rd MTV Movie Awards will be hosted by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, along with comedian Kevin Hart. The pair will be joined onstage by Gigi Hadid, Zac Efron, Seth Rogen, Chris Hemsworth and more to present actors like Ryan Reynolds, Melissa McCarthy, Jamie Foxx and Tom Cruise with their golden popcorn awards. Between honorees, MTV has enlisted Halsey and Ariana Grande to perform some of their smash hit singles.
This year, the network will be awarding several noteworthy actors and actresses for their outstanding achievements over the years. In addition to the 14 awards — which include best fight, best kiss, breakthrough performance and movie of the year — the MTV Movie Awards have selected Melissa McCarthy and Will Smith, among others, as the recipients of special honors. Smith will be receiving the generation award, which celebrates his many contributions to the acting world since beginning his career in 1990. Likewise, McCarthy has been chosen as this year’s comedic genius award.
Tune in to the MTV Movie Awards on TV or online Sunday, April 10, at 8 p.m. EDT.
