AceShowbiz - Vanessa Hudgens is set to host the MTV Movie and TV Awards. Having hosted the event when it was held remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the leading lady of "The Princess Switch" was now poised to return to present the awards show at The Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, on June 5.
Looking forward to her return, the brunette beauty, who shot to fame as Gabriella Montez in the "High School Musical" film series, declared, "I'm back! Trust me: You don't want to miss this."
"Spider-Man: No Way Home" and "Euphoria" led this year's nominees, with the Tom Holland-led film receiving seven nods in total, including Best Movie and Best Hero. "Euphoria", the HBO teen drama that stars Zendaya Coleman and Sydney Sweeney, dominated the TV nominees, receiving six nods in all.
Elsewhere, "RuPaul's Drag Race" has earned four nominations, including Best Unscripted Series. Other contenders for the accolade include "The D'Amelio Show", "Teen Mom: Family Reunion", and "The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip".
Meanwhile, Vanessa previously revealed that she relished hosting the awards ceremony. The Hollywood star explained that she was keen to "uplift people" during the pandemic. Speaking prior to the awards show in 2020, she said, "A lot more COVID testing, but it's really great to be able to come here and celebrate and to be able to uplift people during these times."
The 33-year-old actress, who recently co-hosted the Met Gala in New York City, relished the challenge of hosting the show, and described doing the job amid the health crisis as a "nice mix-up." She said at the time, "I love hosting, so to be able to do it during 2020 is a nice mix-up."
