This will be the show’s sixth time at the Barker Hanger, a popular venue for awards shows. The show has always aired from a venue in the Los Angeles area.

Five other MTV Movie of the Year winners have been nominated for the Best Picture Oscar: some good men, pulp Fiction, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and Black Panther.
The Lord of the Rings is one of three franchises to win multiple Movie of the Year awards at the MTV event. Four dusk the films won the highest honor, as did two avengers movies.
