The MTV Movie and TV Awards celebrates the greatest achievements in film and television. Established by MTV, a leading cable television network, the aim of the award show is not only to acknowledge cinematic and television success, but also to bring together popular culture and the young demographic. This iconic event holds its charm in the distinct categories it offers, including "Best Kiss", "Best Fight", and "Best Musical Moment", providing a unique engagement in comparison to traditional film and TV awards.

South African celebrities often grace the red carpet, sharing the stage with international counterparts. The timing of the MTV Movie and TV Awards generally coincides with the international schedule.
