Nikki Glaser is set to host MTV Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted.
The inaugural event will celebrate the shocking, outrageous and memorable moments from reality TV shows and is set to air on Monday, May 17 at 9 p.m. ET/PT as part of MTV’s two-night takeover to mark the return of the network’s Movie & TV Awards franchise.
Glaser launched her eponymous, daily show, The Nikki Glaser Podcast, this year after hosting You Up with Nikki Glaser for SiriusXM. Her other credits include her 2019 Netflix comedy special Bangin’ and co-creating and executive producing Not Safe with Nikki Glaser for Comedy Central and Nikki & Sara Live for MTV.
The MTV Movie & TV Awards will air on Sunday, May 16, at 9 p.m. ET/PT live from Los Angeles, hosted by Leslie Jones.
Nominees for the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards were announced last week, with WandaVision and Borat Subsequent Moviefilm among the projects scoring the most nominations. Fans can vote for the winners in 25 gender-neutral categories, including best kiss, breakthrough performance and best show — through April 30.
Both specials will be executive produced by MTV’s Bruce Gillmer, Wendy Plaut and Vanessa Whitewolf and Den of Thieves’ Jesse Ignjatovic and Barb Bialkowski.
