Fingers crossed your favorites take home the golden popcorn. 

How to watch the MTV Movie & TV Awards 2022

The 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards and the Movie & TV Awards: UNSCRIPTED will both air live from the Barker Hangar in L.A. on Sunday, June 5 at 8pm ET/PT. 

If you're anxious to tune in, you can watch it via cable or Live on Paramount+. Those at a distance, perhaps across the pond, can tune in via VPN. ExpressVPN(opens in new tab) is rated the best VPN in the world right now by our colleagues at TechRadar.

Who's hosting?

Vanessa Hudgens will do the honors, but when it comes to all-things reality TV, the UNSCRIPTED hosting duties will be rewarded to Tayshia Adams.
