The 2023 edition of the MTV Movie & TV Awards faced a multitude of hurdles, thanks to the ongoing Writers Guild of America strike. The highly-anticipated awards show was initially scheduled to air live on Sunday, but due to the strike, the network was compelled to broadcast a pre-taped special. As a result, several of the expected attendees decided to withdraw from the ceremony, adding to the challenges faced by the organizers.

Despite the challenges, the pre-taped special managed to deliver an unforgettable night filled with sneak peeks, unconventional categories, and countless surprises. Bruce Gillmer, president of music, music talent, programming, and events at Paramount Global, and one of the executive producers of the MTV Movie & TV Awards, remarked, “As we meticulously navigate how to present the fan-first awards show we envisioned, we are shifting away from a live event while still ensuring that we produce a night that will be memorable, honoring the best in film and TV from the past year.”

One of the top winners of the evening was ‘The Last of Us,’ a post-apocalyptic series that won in multiple categories, including Best Drama and Best Performance in a Drama. Meanwhile, ‘Scream VI,’ the latest installment in the horror franchise, took home the award for Best Movie. Other notable winners of the night included ‘WandaVision’ for Best Limited Series and ‘Outer Banks’ for Best Action Series.


The MTV Movie & TV Awards has long been recognized as one of the most exciting awards shows in the entertainment industry, thanks to its unique blend of unconventional categories, high-profile presenters, and unforgettable moments. Despite the challenges posed by the Writers Guild of America strike, the 2023 edition managed to deliver a night that was both surprising and entertaining, proving that the show must go on, no matter the obstacles.
