In their modern form, the awards ceremony is not held in a conventional theatre, but instead as a large street party incorporating the Much Headquarters, its parking lot, and parts of Queen Street West in downtown Toronto, Ontario. There are no hosts or announcers in the traditional awards-show fashion; instead, the Much VJs are an integral part of the festivities, introducing (and interviewing) the awards' presenters and winners throughout the show. As with many modern awards shows (such as the MTV Video Music Awards), many presenters and performers may have little or no connection to the music industry or that year's nominees. Winners of a Much Music Video Award receive a statue made by New York firm, Society Awards.

Each year, MMVA viewers are encouraged to visit the website to vote for the Fan Fave category which includes Video, Artist or Group, and International Artist or Group.
