Drew Barrymore Will Not Host the “MTV Movie and TV Awards” Because of the Writers’ Strike

Drew Barrymore has backed out of hosting Sunday’s “MTV Movie and TV Awards”, in solidarity with striking Hollywood writers.

The show is still going on, but without a host.  And Drew has agreed to host the show next year.

She says, “Until a solution is reached, I am choosing to wait but I’ll be watching from home and hope you will join me.  I thank MTV, who has truly been some of the best partners I have ever worked with.”

Drew will still be part of the show, because she filmed some sketches before the strike.

(On a related note, some of the striking writers are dragging Jenna Ortega, because of comments she made a while back about having to tweak some of the writing on her show “Wednesday”.)
