The MTV Movie & TV Awards are a big Hollywood party and this year’s awards will be twice the size and twice the fun. MTV announced in May that the 2022 event will combine the MTV Movie & TV Awards with the Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted, creating one big celebration of movies, television and reality TV. 

The show has always been popular for its eclectic categories like Best Kiss and Best Villain, as well as new categories like Best Song and Here for the Hookup. It's also known for surprise appearances and memorable performances that have everyone talking. Needless to say, the MTV Movie & TV Awards have always been must-watch television. Now that the awards shows have been combined, it’ll be twice the fun.
