At the Unscripted Awards night of the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards, BTS, “The Bachelorette”, and “RuPaul’s Drag Race” emerged winners. It marked the second night of the award show, with the previous night honouring films and scripted television shows.
The Best Music Documentary award went to behind-the-scenes of 2018–2019 Love Yourself World Tour by BTS, which they titled “BTS – Break the Silence: The Movie”. Its victory over other works like “Taylor Swift: Miss Americana”, “Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil”, “Framing Britney Spears”, and others is quite impressive.
“Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” beat people’s second favourite “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” to the Best Docu-Reality Show award. The show also got the MTV Reality Royalty Lifetime Achievement award.
