The MTV Movie & TV Awards are back for 2023, and they’re sure to be a star-studded event celebrating the best performances of the year so far. Keep reading for more details on the host, how to watch and more. 

Who Is Hosting the 2023 MTV Movie & TV Awards?

MTV announced on March 15 that actress and talk show personality Drew Barrymore would be gearing up to host the 2023 MTV Movie & TV Awards.

However, the talk show host announced she would be pulling out of hosting the event in support of the 2023 Writers Guild of America strike, but would return to host the award show the following year.

“I have listened to the writers, and in order to truly respect them, I will pivot from hosting the MTV Movie & TV Awards live in solidarity with the strike,” Drew said in a statement shared to Variety in May 2023.

“Everything we celebrate and honor about movies and television is born out of their creation,” she continued. “And until a solution is reached, I am choosing to wait but I’ll be watching from home and hope you will join me. I thank MTV, who has truly been some of the best partners I have ever worked with. And I can’t wait to be a part of this next year, when I can truly celebrate everything that MTV has created, which is a show that allows fans to choose who the awards go to and is truly inclusive.​”

Throughout her time in the spotlight, the Drew Barrymore Show host has been nominated nine times and won a total of three MTV Movie & TV Awards across the categories for “Best Kiss” in The Wedding Singer, Best On-Screen Team in Charlie’s Angels and Best Talk/Topical Show at the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted. She was also honored alongside former costar and longtime friend Adam Sandler in the “Dynamic Duo” category at the 2020 MTV Awards: Greatest of All Time. 

Drew is taking over the hosting gig from Vanessa Hudgens, who took the stage during the 2022 ceremony.
