MTV Movie & TV Awards 2023: Here Are All The Winners

The 2023 MTV Movie & TV Awards looked considerably less glittery than usual Sunday as organizers cobbled together a scaled-back, host-free ceremony in the wake of the ongoing writers strike.

Last week, it was announced that the show would air as a pre-taped special as several attendees ― including host Drew Barrymore ― dropped out in solidarity with the writers. Those hopeful for the usual spate of eyebrow-raising fashion moments also had their hopes dashed, as MTV also scrapped all plans for a red carpet as well.

“We’re pivoting away from a live event that still enables us to produce a memorable night full of exclusive sneak peeks, irreverent categories our audience has come to expect, and countless moments that will both surprise and delight,” Bruce Gillmer, an executive producer at MTV, said in a statement.

It was a tough blow for an awards show better known for its spontaneous, headline-making moments than as a certifiable measure of cinematic merit, and the result had the disjointed feel of a program that might have aired in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. Barrymore still appeared in a series of comedic segments that had presumably been filmed prior to her decision to opt out, and much of the show was dedicated to “flashback” footage from previous ceremonies.

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

The writers strike, however, remained top of mind ― with Jennifer Coolidge acknowledging it directly in one of her acceptance speeches.

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