LIST: MTV Movie & TV Awards 2023 winners

By NICK GARCIA Published May 08, 2023 11:52 am

The MTV Movie & TV Awards 2023 just honored biggest shows in the past year, even as there was no live broadcast due to the ongoing strike from the Writers Guild of America (WGA).

The WGA is striking against Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers—which represents major studios like Netflix, Amazon, Apple, Disney, Discovery-Warner, NBC Universal, Paramount, and Sony—as they failed to finalize their collective bargaining agreement which expired on May 1.

The WGA, which has over 11,000 members, had been asking for higher pay and more healthcare benefits. In particular, it wants better compensation for its members' works appearing on the streaming giants.

Entertainment news website Variety reported that Drew Barrymore withdrew from hosting duties to support the WGA, and will instead host the 2024 edition. Several celebrities and presenters also backed out of the live event.

This year's MTV Movie & TV Awards had no red carpet or pre-show interviews, and instead aired pre-recorded video materials, including the winners' acceptance speeches.

Here's the full list of winners and nominees, with the winners in boldface.
