Miles Teller & More Set for MTV MOVIE AWARDS 'Weekend Brunch' Programming
Over the past 22 years, the "MTV Movie Awards" have thrilled movie lovers with countless mega-watt celebrity appearances, blazing musical performances, over-the-top award categories, WTF fashion and show-stopping moments. To get fans hyped for this year's awards, MTV will present a countdown special, "MTV Movie Awards: Most WTF Moments," presented by T-Mobile® that will help viewers relive the hottest moments of the franchise. Hosted by Miles Teller (Divergent, The Spectacular Now, The Fantastic Four) and MTV's Josh Horowitz, the 30-minute retrospective will also include previously unaired director's cuts of how some of the hottest moments in Movie Awards history really went down. Capping it all off, the special will revisit some of the most popular cinematic celebrity movie spoofs from years past. The "MTV Movie Awards: Most WTF Moments" premieres Sunday, April 6 at Noon ET/PT.
