MTV Movie Awards History

The MTV Movie and TV Awards recognises excellent performance in film and television. The awards ceremony, which is predominantly US-based, is an opportunity for actors, filmmakers and television personalities to be publicly recognised for their exceptional work and contributions to the entertainment industry. Unlike many traditional awards, the MTV Movie and TV Awards are more accessible to the mainstream audience, as they include categories that cater to diverse tastes, such as Best Kiss and Best Fight.

The MTV Movie and TV Awards was established in 1992 and has since been viewed by audiences worldwide, including Australia. The awards have opened doors for many Australian actors, directors, and other entertainment professionals to gain international recognition. Stars such as Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie and the Hemsworth brothers have been recognised for their work in the international film and TV industry. Additionally, Australia’s thriving movie and TV landscape has also been validated through numerous nominations and wins in the awards.

In Australia, the MTV Movie and TV Awards is typically observed through various media platforms, including television and online streaming. Australian fans, filmmakers, and actors alike anticipate the nomination announcements, engage in vigorous debates about potential winners, and tune in to watch the event live. As the award ceremony usually takes place in June in the US, due to the time difference, Australians will see live telecasts or stream the event during the day or on subsequent evenings. Despite the time difference, enthusiasm among the Australian audience for the MTV Movie and TV Awards remains ever high.
