MTV is spicing up its long-standing MTV Movie Awards to include TV for the first time in 25 years.
The newly minted MTV Movie & TV Awards is hoping to celebrate young Hollywood’s best performances across an expanded selection of favorites from both the big and small screens.
“We’re living in a golden age of content, and great storytelling and characters resonate regardless of whether you’re watching it in a theater or on TV,” Chris McCarthy, president of MTV, said in a press release.
MTV will also host a Movie & Television Festival during the day leading up to the main event. Live performances, special guests and food will have fans participating in a day-long party outside the venue.
The 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards will take place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. The show will air live at 8 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
