On Sunday, the MTV Movie & TV Awards ceremony took place, although it was originally planned to be hosted by Drew Barrymore, the host pulled out in solidarity with the writers’ strike.

The event was full of surprises as several stars bagged the golden popcorn statuettes, including “Scream VI,” “The Last of Us,” and “Purple Hearts” for “Come Back Home.”

The most nominated scripted content was “Top Gun: Maverick,” and TV shows “Stranger Things,” “The Last of Us,” “The White Lotus,” and “Wednesday”.
