2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards is one of the biggest and most-awaited award shows of the year which will see fans’ favourite celebrities' work getting celebrated across movies and TV. To make things more interesting, this year’s award ceremony has been divided into two parts. The main ceremony will be held on day one and the inaugural “Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted” will take place on the next day.


The two ceremonies will be entirely different but won’t compromise on the entertainment factor. Both the shows will be executive produced by MTV’s Bruce Gillmer, Wendy Plaut, and Vanessa Whitewolf along with Jesse Ignjatovic and Barb Bialkowski.  The voting for the renowned award show was closed on April 30, 2021. For the unversed, the coveted award show was skipped last year due to the global pandemic.
