2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards - all the nominees

The ramped-up MTV Movie and TV Awards were held on two nights last year when they added extra TV categories in a new Unscripted section.

That obviously didn't work because this year they're back to one-night-only, with both the Scripted and Unscripted ceremonies taking place on 5 June - the early hours of 6 June in South Africa.

We presume they'll air on MTV and MTV Base here and will keep you posted in the TVSA News Shorts and New Shows and Seasons section.

Our biggest gripe with the nominee list: the fact that terrorific Yellow Jackets doesn't have a single mention, which makes these awards too safe.

The mention of Yellow only goes to the Kevin Costner family drama Yellowstone. Yawn.
