The MTV Movie and TV Awards were last night and the celebrities came out in full force. Adam Devine from Pitch Perfect, was the host and MAN was he hilarious.
They opened with a Beauty And The Beast musical parody with Hailee Stienfeld as “Belle,” Rebel Wilson as “Mrs. Potts” and Adam himself as “The Beast.”
1. Emma Watson wound up taking home the first ever “Genderless” award. Instead of having a Best Actor and Best Actress award the awards show combined the two. It’s the first ever awards show to do this in the history of awards shows. Emma had a lot to say being an active advocate for gender equality.
“I feel I have to say something about the award itself” she began. The first acting award in history that doesn’t separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience. MTV’s move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone. But to me, it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes. And that doesn’t need to be separated into two different categories.”
2. Fast and the Furious franchise received the “Generation” award. Vin Diesel accepted the award on behalf of the cast, but not before calling some of his co-stars: Tyrese, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster on stage with him before doing so.
At the end, he said “I could never stand on this stage and talk about fast and furious without giving love to my brother Pablo. Our brother Pablo. We hope you are proud. Thank you so much.”
3. Noah Cyrus performed and although she reminds us a lot of her sister, there are some traits that couldn’t be more opposite from Miley.
4. Camilla Cabello performed “HEY MA” with Pitbull and Jay Balvin and the three of them were FIRE!
5. Taraji P. Henson had a great speech about equality of ALL people and was able to say it in the most inspiring way as she accepted her award for “FIGHT THE SYSTEM” award for Hidden Figures.
6. Spiderman- Homecoming was featured last night during the awards and we got to see what Zandaya and Tom Holland are capable of in the new reboot.
7. Stranger Things won ‘Best TV show & Beauty and the Beast won “Movie of the Year.”
8. Ru Pauls Drag Race won for “Best Reality Competition” while THIS IS US won for “TEAR JERKER” AWARD.
