MTV Movie & TV Awards preview

CNN —  

She ready. Are you?

Comedian Tiffany Haddish will host the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards on Monday night, so get ready for a fun ride.

“Black Panther” and “Stranger Things” lead with seven nominations. This is the second year the popcorn awards have included television categories. Also like last year, there will also be no gender-specific categories.

The host

In addition to hosting the ceremony, Haddish is also nominated for her role in last year’s “Girls Trip.”

“If you wanna make it in this business, you gotta pay your dues. I’ve slept in my car in Beverly Hills. I even hosted bar mitzvahs,” Haddish says in a promo for the show. “You don’t want another generic dude in a tux hosting a boring-a** award show. You want the boss who paved her own way.”

Performers and presenters

Nick Jonas will take the stage with rapper Mustard. Chloe x Hall will also perform. Michael B. Jordan, Seth Rogen, Zendaya, Gina Rodriguez, Kristen Bell and Common are slated as some of the presenters.

Chris Pratt to be honored

Chris Pratt will be honored with the Generation Award. Pratt stars in “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” which hits theaters June 22. Some of the previous recipients include Will Smith, Sandra Bullock, Mark Wahlberg and Adam Sandler. Lena Waithe will receive the Trailblazer Award.
