Here's How You Can Watch The 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards

If you're a pop culture junkie — or just enjoy a good awards show — then you likely love the MTV Movie & TV Awards. The annual fan-voted event can usually be counted on to deliver headline-sparking red carpet appearances, inspiring acceptance speeches from big stars, and plenty of buzz-worthy moments. It's MTV, after all!

The 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards (which first took place in 1992) are already enticing viewers. First and foremost, the big occasion just got even bigger by being split into two nights. The main event will take place at the Palladium in Los Angeles, Calif. on Sunday, May 16. The next day, the very first "Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted," which will honor the best of reality TV, per The Wrap, will air on Monday, May 17. Fun! 

The main event will be hosted by Leslie Jones, and will feature presenters like Mandy Moore, Anthony Mackie, Addison Rae, Tom Hiddleston, and Henry Golding. Those who tune in will also see nominees from popular series like "WandaVision," "Emily in Paris," and "Bridgerton," as well as films such as "Judas and the Black Messiah" and "Promising Young Woman." However, the fun doesn't stop there. Nikki Glaser will lead things the next day as the host of the "Unscripted" show. If we've piqued your interest, how to watch this year's show.

There are a few ways to catch the two-night awards show

Don't want to miss a minute of the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards? Then be sure to be ready at 9 p.m. ET/PT on both May 16 and 17 in order to catch the main event, as well as the next evening's Nikki Glaser-helmed "Unscripted" show. And where should you tune in for all the action? Fans who want to see what happens as it goes down, and have cable, can watch the event on MTV, per E! News.

But fret not TV-free households. If you subscribe to either YouTube TV or Hulu, you're also in luck! That's because those platforms will also have access to the event, as will MTV's app (both live and for streaming the show again when things wrap up). For the latter option, you'll just need to enter the username and password for your cable subscription. After taking a hiatus in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic (and airing a retrospective show instead), there's a lot of ground to cover, and we can't wait to watch! 

Of course, there will also be a lot of buzz on social media while the event is taking place. For all of the juicy details and the things you may have missed, we'll have you covered (and the show literally being covered moment-by-moment) here at Nicki Swift.
