2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards

The MTV Movie & TV Awards return this year to celebrate pop culture's biggest night with the performances, stories and moments that drove "the conversation" this year.

RBG, Game of Thrones and Avengers: Endgame lead the nominations with four apiece this year. New categories this year include Reality Royalty, Most Meme-able Moment and Best Real-Life Hero.

Fan favourites like Best Kiss, Best Hero, Best Villain and more remain, as MTV continues to collapse the divide between film, television and streaming.

Zachary Levi will host the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards.
