MTV isn’t just celebrating the best of the best when it comes to movies anymore—it’s tackling television! The network announced Monday that the 2017 MTV Movie Awards will also include TV categories and is officially renamed (drumroll, please…) the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards.
The star-studded ceremony, which in the past has seen appearances from the likes Gigi Hadid, Zac Efron, Ryan Reynolds and more, will air live from the Shrine Auditorium in beautiful Los Angeles on Sunday, May 7, 2017.
Additionally, MTV will host its first-ever Movie and Television Festival in the hours leading up to the big show. Per a press release obtained by E! News, pop culture fanatics will be treated to live musical acts, special guests and delicious food in the area right outside the Shrine Auditorium.
To put it this way, picture it as a daylong party to precede what is sure to be a showstopping red carpet and even more unforgettable award ceremony.
