Scream VI Wins Best Movie at MTV Movie & TV Awards

The horror sequel Scream VI is a hit with the MTV crowd, as the film just won the Best Movie award at this year’s MTV Movie & TV Awards. Released in theaters in March, Scream VI is the first film in the series to go without an appearance from Neve Campbell, focusing primarily on the younger cast of characters established in the previous Scream. It was pretty well received by fans and critics, and better yet for the film, it set the new record as the highest-grossing installment of the Scream franchise. To accept the Best Movie award, the latest achievement for the franchise, was none other than Ghostface, with the masked killer appearing in a pre-recorded message with the new golden popcorn.

“Here’s a twist you didn’t see coming: the villain comes out on top,” Ghostface says in the video. “To all the fans who voted, you finally answered my question… what’s your favorite scary movie?”

Of the seven nominees for Best Movie, the runners-up include Avatar: The Way of Water, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Elvis, Nope, Smile, and Top Gun: Maverick.

Gale vs. Ghostface Wins Best Fight

Paramount Pictures

Earlier in the night, the fight sequence between Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox) and Ghostface in Scream VI also won the award for Best Fight. Similarly, Ghostface had appeared in a video to address the win. The masked killer laments that Gale couldn’t be there to also accept the award, but there’s a tease that the reporter will still ultimately get what’s coming to her.

“Hello, MTV, it’s about time someone truly appreciated my work,” Ghostface says. “Too bad Gale couldn’t be here tonight, but don’t worry, I’ll make sure she gets what she deserves.”

The murderer adds, “You know what they say in Hollywood. Movies don’t create psychos, movies make psychos more creative… and I’m looking forward to a lot more creativity.”

That sure sounds like a tease for more Scream movies to be made. As it stands, a seventh Scream film hasn’t been officially announced, but it does seem to be likely, given how successful Scream VI turned out to be. Winning two awards at the MTV Movie & TV Awards can only increase the odds of Scream 7 happening. It should be noted that the film was also up for a third award, nominated for Best Song for Demi Lovato’s “Still Alive,” an honor that went to Taylor Swift’s Carolina for Where the Crawdads Sing.

For the Best Fight award won by Gale Weathers and Ghostface, the other nominees for that category included Ladybug (Brad Pitt) vs. The Wolf (Bad Bunny) in Bullet Train; Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower) vs. Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) in Stranger Things; John Wick (Keanu Reeves) vs. Everyone in John Wick: Chapter 4; and the “Escape from Narkina 5” sequence in Star Wars: Andor.
