In 25 years, MTV is spicing up its long-standing MTV Movie Awards to include TV for the first time.
The newly stamped MTV Movie & TV Awards is expecting to celebrate young Hollywood’s best performances across an expanded selection of favorites from both the big screens and small screens.
Chris McCarthy, president of MTV, said in a press release, we are living in a golden age of content and great storytelling and characters resonate regardless of whether you are watching it in a theater or on TV.
During the day, MTV will also host a Movie & Television Festival leading up to the main event. In a day-long party outside the venue, live performances, special guests and food will have fans participating.
At the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards will take place. The show will air live at 8 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
