By The Big Magazine Staff

A host-less, pre-taped MTV Movie & TV Awards 2023= Disaster

Sunday night’s 2023 MTV Movie & TV Awards 2 hour pre-recorded show turned out to be a total flop for viewers with no host, no celebs, and bunch of throwback clips no one cares about!

The award show went amid The Writers Guild of America strike which began on Tuesday night. Days before the event, Drew Barrymore pulled out as host in solidarity and the red carpet was cancelled due to celebs dropping out. Following the cancellations, Paramount announced the live broadcast was canceled and that the show would instead air acceptance speeches via pre-taped clips and throwback moments. As a result, the MTV Movie & TV Awards 2023 was a total disaster!

In total only a handful of celebs sent in pre-recorded speeches—including Tom Cruise, Jennifer Coolidge, and Pedro Pascal & Bella Ramsey, we among the few who made the effort to participate.
