The 2024 MTV Movie & TV Awards have been canceled.

MTV first started airing the Movie & TV Awards in 1992, however, over the past few years the show has faced several difficulties and low ratings.

In 2020, the MTV Movie & TV Awards didn’t take place due in part to the COVID-19 pandemic and also because the network decided to switch the air date from late spring/early summer to December.

Ultimately instead of an awards show that year, MTV ran the MTV Movie & TV Awards: Greatest of All Time special, hosted by Vanessa Hudgens and showed clips from past ceremonies during the broadcast.

Then in 2021 and 2022, MTV returned with two ceremonies – the MTV Movie & TV Awards on one night and the MTV Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted on the next night.

The show last aired in May 2023 amid the Writers Guild of America strike. Host Drew Barrymore dropped out of show in solidarity with the writers and MTV decided to largely alter the ceremony.

The show aired with numerous pretaped segments and acceptance speeches along with clips from upcoming movies and TV shows and previous editions of the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

After dropping out of the 2023 ceremony, Drew agreed to host the awards show this year, but it’s unclear if she’ll still be attached to host the 2025 show.
