‘You have to understand that these are our first awards in 13 years,’ Jenni explained.

‘We did this show, and it was called Jersey Shore, and then MTV gave us a second chance with Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, and we came back even f***ing harder than we did the first time,’ Vinnie bragged while accepting the award.  

The cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race took home the first golden popcorn at Monday night’s 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted ceremony.

RuPaul made a surprise appearance to accept the award after makeup artist Gottmik and season 13 winner Symone started their speeches.

Following last night’s MTV Movie & TV Awards ceremony, the network is returning for part two to honor the world of reality television.

It’s the first time MTV has devoted a show exclusively to honoring unscripted content.

The show opened with a montage of classic reality shows in recent years, before some of the evening’s guests danced together.

Glaser opened her monologue with a joke about how the show’s name was a ‘mouthful,’ ‘which I guess makes sense since a mouthful is how many of us got where we are tonight.’

The host poked fun at the reality stars on hand and how fascinated their ‘bad boundaries’ were, while joking that they were an escape from the audience’s ‘own pathetic lives.’
