How to Watch the 2023 MTV Movie and TV Awards: Are They Streaming?
This year’s MTV Movie and TV Awards will look different than recent years past, largely due to the WGA strike that went into effect the night of May 1. Pivoting from a live telecast, the ceremony will now include pre-taped segments. Many of the original presenters and other attendees have pulled out of the event in a show of solidarity with the Writers Guild.
President of Music, Music Talent, Programming and Events at Paramount Global Bruce Gilmer, confirmed to People that the show will change to a clip-based presentation. There will be no pre-show red carpet, and talent interviews have been canceled.
The WGA said writers would picket outside Barker Hangar in Santa Monica where the event will be held but changed its mind.
