The show must go on!

Tonight, the MTV Movie & TV Awards celebrated the biggest shows and movies of the past year, even without the traditional ceremony in place. Host Drew Barrymore dropped out just days before the show and the event will still go on without a host, making use of pre-recorded segments from the daytime talk show host.

As her iconic character Josie “Grossie” Geller from Never Been Kissed, Barrymore, in a pre-taped segment, opened the show wandering her way through series and movies like Wednesday, Top Gun: Maverick, Nope, and M3GAN, in search of an elusive kiss before getting some Cocaine Bear action.

Barrymore’s sudden cancellation — as well as MTV’s cancellation of the red carpet — is due to the Writers Guild of America going on strike this week. “I will pivot from hosting the MTV Movie & TV Awards live in solidarity with the strike,” Barrymore said in a statement. “Everything we celebrate and honor about movies and television is born out of their creation.”

Jennifer Coolidge was slated to receive the Comedic Genius Award at the ceremony, which also had recruited Jamie Lee Curtis, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Halle Bailey, Stephanie Hsu, Ashley Park, Dominique Fishback, Tiffany Haddish, and Anthony Ramos, among others, as presenters. Ayo Edebiri, Riley Keough, and Sam Claflin were also part of the original lineup.

Pedro Pascal picked up the first award of the night for Best Hero for his role in The Last of Us, who accepted his award via video. Pascal would return twice more to accept Best Duo with Last of Us co-star Bella Ramsey, and Best Show, again, for The Last of Us.
