Vanessa Hudgens will host the 90-minute, end-of-year special on Sunday Dec. 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Because of the coronavirus, we won't be getting the traditional 2020 MTV Movie & TV Awards this year, but that doesn't mean we can't look back at the best moments in past pop culture! In lieu of a normal awards show, on Dec. 6, the network is putting on the MTV Movie & TV Awards: Greatest of All Time special, hosted by Vanessa Hudgens.

The 90-minute special will honor major moments in movies and TV from the 1980s until now, feature appearances from yet-to-be-named guests, and honor "GOATs" across several categories, including Scream Queen, Legendary Lip Lock, Dance Your A** Off, Heartbreaking Break-Up, Comedy Giant, Zero to Hero, She-Ro, and Dynamic Duo.

Additionally, the late Chadwick Boseman, star of Black Panther, activist and role model, will be awarded the Hero for the Ages honor, recognizing on-screen heroism "only surpassed by the true hero they were off-screen."
