Everything You Need to Know About the 2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards
If you're bemoaning the end of awards season and counting down until the days when Oscar, Grammy, and Golden Globes red carpets take over the news cycle again, we suggest you kindly turn your attention toward June 18 on the calendar, because MTV is here to help fill the void.
The 2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards are right around the corner, so brace yourselves for an evening of laughs, on-stage makeouts (a favorite tradition), and golden popcorn statues.
Here's all the info you need before host Tiffany Haddish kicks things off officially, all below.
When are the 2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards?
The show will go down on Monday, June 18 at 9 p.m. ET on, you guessed it, MTV.
Wait, isn't it called the MTV Movie Awards?
Not anymore, it's not! Last year marked the first time that TV was also invited to the party, and there's no going back now. According to Indiewire, it's part of why the show is now been pushed from May to June (during Emmy voting).
How can I watch the show?
Tune into MTV at 9 p.m. ET.
Who is hosting the 2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards?
The incomparable Tiffany Haddish will be the evening's host and emcee, so buckle up for a lot of laughs (and possibly a resurgence of her favorite Alexander McQueen dress, it's unclear).
Who is nominated for a 2018 MTV Movie and TV Award?
Check out the full list of nominees right here. If you're feeling a little lazy, here's a quick overview: Black Panther secured the most nominations with 7, surprising absolutely nobody. The TV side has a few new heavy hitters in 13 Reasons Why and Riverdale, but they both trail fan favorite Stranger Things in total nominations (the hit '80s-based Netflix show leads with 6).
In a cool twist, none of the categories are gender-specific (for the second year in a row), which means men and women will go head to head for performance awards. That golden popcorn will sure come in handy.
Anyone else being honored?
As a matter of fact, yes! Chris Pratt, whom MTV calls "one of Hollywood’s most renowned and sought-after actors," will be given the Generation Award for his body of work, while Lena Waithe, whom MTV says "wielded her voice with stunning results," will receive the Trailblazer Award
Nick Jonas will sing a tune alongside Mustard (the rapper, not the condiment), and Chloe x Halle will also hit the stage with new music.
Where does the show take place?
It'll all go down at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica.
