MTV Movie TV Awards : 2019 Red carpet/ Many of us think of award show season as occurring at the start of the year with the Golden Globes, SAG Awards, the Grammys, and the Oscars. By the time we get to summer, we aren’t thinking of red carpet looks and hopeful nominees trying out trends, but we wouldn’t dare miss the MTV Movie & TV Awards.
The statements made by celebrities at this award show might be more casual than a black tie event, but they are no less fashion forward. In fact, we would argue they might be even more so. This is when celebrities, especially the much-buzzed-about newcomers, bust out bright colors, unconventional cuts, and the outfits they wouldn’t put together for the winter award shows. Kiernan Shipka, Lana Condor, Lizzo, and Finn Wolfhard all stepped onto the red carpet with trend-worthy ensembles worthy of a catwalk. After all, you wouldn’t see Elisabeth Moss sporting a snake over half her dress as the Oscars.
Airing tomorrow evening on MTV, the annual ceremony (which began jointly honoring film and television in 2017) promises to bring together the biggest names in Hollywood under one roof at the Barkar Hangar in sunny Santa Monica, Calif. The MTV Movie & TV Awards will also continue a three-year tradition of passing out gender-neutral honors.
So what else is there to know about this year’s celebration? We’ve got you covered! Keep scrolling:
The MTV Movie & TV Awards brought together a slew of big stars on Saturday night for a fun-filled celebration of the best in Hollywood.
Zachary Levi hosted the awards show this year, which featured appearances by Melissa McCarthy, Jada Pinkett Smith, Tiffany Haddish, Lizzo, Tessa Thompson and Elisabeth Moss, to name a few.
Also there was the cast of “The Hills: New Beginnings,” the upcoming reboot of “The Hills” set to premiere later this month. Heidi Montag and husband Spencer Pratt brought their son, Gunnar, with them to the show, while Audrina Patridge, Jason Wahler, Justin Bobby and new cast members Mischa Barton and Brandon Lee (the son of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee), hit the red carpet, too.
The annual ceremony this year aims to be “more of a party than award show” for audience and viewers.
MTV may be ready to honor the best in film and television during its annual awards ceremony Monday night, but don’t expect the network to broadcast a predictable show for viewers. Instead, the spirit of this show — described as “more of a party” — will be revamped with a “fresh take” thanks to new host Zachary Levi and the way viewers consume content.
MTV, VH1, CMT and Logo general manager Amy Doyle says this year’s show, as it is every year, is truly the people’s show, always being rebranded based on the MTV audience’s approach to content.
