Popcorn party! The 2021 MTV Movie and TV Awards are highlighting so many stars that it will take place on both Sunday, May 16, and Monday, May 17.
Leslie Jones is sure to bring the laughs as the show’s host during Sunday’s presentation, which takes place at the Palladium in Los Angeles. The awards range from Best Movie and Best TV Show to Best Kiss and Best Hero.
MTV announced the nominees one month prior, with WandaVision taking the lead with five nods, including Best Show and Best Performance in a Show for Elizabeth Olsen’s portrayal of Wanda Maximoff/The Scarlet Witch. Bridgerton, Emily in Paris and The Boys also cleaned up nicely with multiple nominations each.
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm earned three nominations, topping the film categories, while Judas and the Black Messiah came in with two total nods. Promising Young Woman, Soul and To All the Boys: Always and Forever rounded out the Best Movie category.
Earlier this month, the network revealed that Scarlett Johansson will be taking home the Generation Award during Sunday’s show, celebrating her work in the entertainment industry over the past two-plus decades. Sacha Baron Cohen will also receive a special trophy, the Comedic Genius Award, on Sunday for his years of comedy and success in the film industry.
Who will take home the coveted golden popcorn statue for Best Kiss, however? It remains to be seen. As the one of the most talked about categories in MTV Movie & TV Awards’ history, this year’s nominees are all worthy of a standing ovation for their smooching skills.
Whoever wins the trophy on Sunday will be joining a group of iconic Best Kiss recipients, including Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams for The Notebook and Selma Blair and Sarah Michelle Gellar for Cruel Intentions. Blair, 48, and Gellar, 44, also received the Legendary Lip Lock award in 2020 for the same movie kiss.
