How Long Is the MTV Movie & TV Awards Tonight? When Does It End?

MTV Movie & TV Awards end time

Getty Storm Reid attends the 2019 MTV Movie and TV Awards at Barker Hangar on June 15, 2019 in Santa Monica, California.

The 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards are tonight, June 17, starting at 9/8c. The ceremony, which honors the year’s best in film and television, is taking place at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, and MTV will be broadcasting the night’s events on their network channel.

We know that the awards show starts at 9/8c sharp, but we also know that during awards season, these ceremonies have a tendency to feel like they’re going on forever (and sometimes, they really do). So how long are the MTV Movie & TV Awards this year? According to MTV’s TV schedule, the awards show is supposed to run 2 hours and 2 minutes long, which means it ends at 11:02pm ET. MTV will air a rerun of the show immediately after, starting at 11:02pm ET and again at 1:04am ET.

The two-hour show is necessary in order to give out awards for a number of fun categories across both the film and television mediums. The categories include the standard “Best” actors and actresses in film and television as well as the best movie and best tv show of the year. It also includes categories unique to the MTV Movie & TV Awards, such as “Best Kiss,” “Best Real Life Hero,” and “Most Meme-able Moment.”

If you are not able to watch the show from start to finish, a complete list of the night’s winners will be updated by MTV live; you can find the full list of winners here.

Zachary Levi, the star of the new superhero comedy Shazam!, is the event’s host and his monologue will open the show with jokes at his expense and the expense of some of the night’s top nominees. Expect to see more skits and laughter-inducing moments led by Levi throughout the 2-hour show. Before the show began, he shared photos of his red carpet look on Instagram, writing “This is it! The @mtv Movie&TV Awards are finally here, tonight at 9pm! I can’t promise that you’ll find my hosting even slightly adequate, but HOT DAMN if my style team didn’t make me feel prettier than when I rang in my Quinceañera a few years back!”

The show will also feature performances by Lizzo and Bazzi and give out two special awards to this year’s honorees, Jada Pinkett Smith and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Pinkett Smith is being honored with the “Trailblazer Award” for her work as an actress, writer, producer, and director in the entertainment industry. Johnson is receiving the “Generation Award” for his status as a “global box-office sensation” known for starring in a number of film blockbusters and his recent credits as a successful producer. Viewers should expect meaningful acceptance speeches from both of them as well as video montages sharing some of their career highlights.

Tune in to the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards, Monday, June 17 at 9/8c on MTV.
