2017 MTV MOVIE & TV AWARDS AIR LIVE ON MONDAY MAY 8 FROM 12.00PM, ONLY ON MTV - SKY CHANNEL 015!
MTV has this year reimagined the format of its awards show by breaking down the gender wall with exclusively non-gendered categories.
Additionally, MTV is adding TV to the traditional movie awards and blending nominees across film and TV, so actors from all screens will compete for the Golden Popcorn in the same categories.
Dillon, a series regular on Showtime’s Billions is the first gender non-binary identifying actor ever to be cast in a major television series.
"I grew up with MTV. It was the pop culture voice of my generation. MTV continues to be a voice for the culture it represents. I am honored to open the show as a presenter as MTV makes strides once more by doing away with binary acting categories, celebrating television and film in a truly inclusive way," said Dillon.
Asia recently sent an impassioned letter to the TV Academy, questioning the gender-specific classifications of the acting categories in the Primetime Emmy Awards.
The MTV Movie and TV Awards premiere LIVE on Monday May 8th at 12pm from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
MTV today announced that Fast & Furious,one of the most popular and enduring motion-picture franchises of all time, will receive the 'Generation Award' at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, marking the first time that a film franchise will be honoured instead of an individual actor.
Star and producer Vin Diesel will accept the award on behalf of the groundbreaking franchise, alongside his Fast & Furious franchise co-stars Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Jordana Brewster.
Hosted by comedian Adam Devine, the MTV Movie and TV Awards will air LIVE on Monday May 8 at 12pm from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
“We are thrilled to celebrate the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise and its global contribution to pop culture,” said Amy Doyle, General Manager, MTV, VH1 and Logo. “From the diverse cast of beloved actors, to the music and fashion, we are honored to present the Generation Award to a franchise that continues to entertain millions of fans across the world." J Balvin and Pitbull will take to the MTV Movie & TV Awards stage with Camila Cabello to perform their steamy hit single, 'Hey Ma' which is featured in The Fate of the Furious - which recently achieved the biggest global opening in history. This marks the first televised performance of the track since its release in March.
For more than 25 years, the 'Generation Award' has been dedicated to honouring talent who have had great achievements in their movie careers. The distinction is given to artists who have shown a variety of impressive roles. Past recipients of the award include: Will Smith, Reese Witherspoon, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Wahlberg, Sandra Bullock, Jamie Foxx, Johnny Depp, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Mike Myers, Tom Cruise and Jim Carrey.
