    The MTV Movie and TV Awards have been axed for 2024

    The ceremony - which first aired back in 1992, when it was called the MTV Movie Awards - is expected to return in 2025 with a "re-imagined format", according to various outlets


    The 2023 ceremony was pre-recorded after Drew Barrymore stepped down as the host amid the Hollywood writer's strike in support of the Writers Guild of America (WGA).

    The event went host-less, and ratings didn't suffer at all.

    The 'Drew Barrymore Show' host, 49, was expected to return this year, and it's not known if she will be back for 2025.

    In a statement issued to Variety at the time, she said: "I have listened to the writers, and in order to truly respect them, I will pivot from hosting the MTV Movie and TV Awards live in solidarity with the strike.

    "Everything we celebrate and honour about movies and television is born out of their creation. And until a solution is reached, I am choosing to wait but I'll be watching from home and hope you will join me."

    She added that MTV has "truly been some of the best partners I have ever worked with. And I can't wait to be a part of this next year, when I can truly celebrate everything that MTV has created, which is a show that allows fans to choose who the awards go to and is truly inclusive."

    Bruce Gillmer, the president of music, music talent, programming, and events at Paramount Global, commented: "Drew, without question, she's been incredible. It's hard to imagine that we've ever had a better experience with a host.

    "She's more of a partner really, she's in it every day, just super passionate and super engaged and creative. She even bought some of her own team along for the journey. So when this all reared its head, we started to prepare for what could be. She is not surprisingly, standing in solidarity with the writers, which we have full respect for. She has our full support."

    The ex ecutive producer of the awards added how "the silver lining in all of this is that we really formed a partnership almost a family-like atmosphere. So we see this as a shift in direction, but also a pause for the initial plan, which we've all agreed and she's accepted to continue as our host in 2024."

    The MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) are still set to go ahead in New York on September 10.
