‘Stranger Things,’ ‘Wednesday,’ and ‘M3GAN’ Among MTV Movie & TV Awards ‘Best Musical Moment’ Nominees

Earlier this month, MTV announced the bulk of the categories and nominees for the 2023 MTV Movie & TV Awards, but on Thursday, MTV unveiled the 16 nominees competing in the social category for “Best Musical Moment.” Among the nominees in the category are the film “M3GAN,” Netflix’s “Stranger Things” and Wednesday, and HBO’s “The Last of Us.”

This social category recognizes moments from television and film where music plays a crucial part in the story. “M3GAN” has been nominated for M3GAN’s unsettling performance of the David Guetta hit, “Titanium.” “Stranger Things,” not surprisingly, has been selected for its use of Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill” as Max’s source of salvation for much of “Stranger Things 4.” From “The Last Of Us,” Bill and Frank’s piano performance of Linda Ronstadt’s “Long Long Time” has been nominated. And finally, Jenna Ortega’s viral dance performance from “Wednesday” set to The Cramps’ “Goo Goo Muck” has also been nominated.

The complete list of nominees includes:

  • Daisy Jones & The Six: “Look At Us Now (Honeycomb)”
  • Don’t Worry Darling: Jack’s Tap Dance
  • Elvis: “Trouble”
  • Ginny & Georgia: “I Will Survive” (Bachelorette Party)
  • M3GAN: “Titanium”
  • Matilda the Musical: “Revolting Children”
  • Purple Hearts: “Come Back Home”
  • RRR: “Naatu Naatu”
  • She-Hulk: Attorney at Law: “Body”
  • SNL: “Big Boys”
  • Stranger Things: “Running Up That Hill”
  • The Last of Us: “Long Long Time” (Bill & Frank Play Piano)
  • The School for Good and Evil: “You Should See Me in a Crown”
  • The Summer I Turned Pretty: “This Love (Taylor’s Version)”
  • Wednesday: “Goo Goo Muck”
  • Young Royals: “Simon’s Song”

Voting for this social category will open via MTV’s Instagram Stories on Monday, May 1, and closes Friday, May 5, with the winner revealed live during the show.

The 2023 MTV Movie & TV Awards will air on May 7 as an epic, supersized Los Angeles takeover event live from Barker Hangar starting at 8 PM ET/PT. This year’s awards show, which Drew Barrymore will host, will air on MTV internationally in more than 170 countries.
