MTV TV and Movie Awards: A New Look

 

Last year, MTV broke the mold by taking their iconic “MTV Movie Awards” to an outside venue hosted by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart. This year, they plan to shake up the formula even more. Hosted by everyone’s favorite Workaholic and Treblemaker, Adam Devine, this year’s awards intend to bring TV into the mix and allow the categories to be gender-blind.
