MTV Movie & TV Awards Adjusts Format Due to Talent Withdrawals Amid Writers’ Strike

NOTE: This article is 12 months old and may not include the most recent information.

The MTV Movie & TV Awards will be adopting a different format than usual as a result of the ongoing writers’ strike. The awards show will proceed without a host after Drew Barrymore stepped down in support of the striking writers. Several other invited talents, including presenters and nominees, have also withdrawn their participation in solidarity with the Writers Guild of America (WGA).

Although there are no confirmed plans for the WGA to picket the event, the potential talent withdrawal could reach up to 75%. In response to these changes, the awards show is being restructured to feature more pre-recorded segments, such as winner speeches, turning it into a clip show.

Bruce Gillmer, the president of music, music talent, programming, and events at Paramount Global, expressed confidence in the team’s ability to adapt and deliver an enjoyable show for fans. He highlighted their experience in handling challenges, such as scaling back during the COVID-19 pandemic, and reassured that this year’s awards would be no different.
