The 26th MTV Movie and TV Awards were held Sunday in Los Angeles. Nominees on the film side included “Get Out” and “Beauty and the Beast,” while “Stranger Things” was the most nominated TV series.
Ultimately, “Beauty and the Beast” won Movie of the Year. It beat “Get Out,” “Edge of Seventeen,” “Logan,” and “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”
The Netflix Original series “Stranger Things” won Show of the Year. Other nominees were “This is Us,” “Atlanta,” “Game of Thrones,” “Pretty Little Liars,” and “Insecure.”
In a move to reflect a changing political climate, the acting categories were combined. Instead of Best Actor and Best Actress, MTV opted to change the categories simply to Best Actor in a Movie, and Best Actor in a Show.
Emma Watson won for “Beauty and the Beast.” The other contenders were Daniel Kaluuya (“Get Out”), Hailee Steinfeld (“Edge of Seventeen”), Hugh Jackman (“Logan”), James McAvoy (“Split”), and Taraji P. Henson (“Hidden Figures”).
On the TV side, Millie Bobby Brown won for her role as Eleven in “Stranger Things.” Her competitors were Donald Glover (“Atlanta”), Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones”), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (“The Walking Dead”), Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”) and Mandy Moore (“This Is Us”).
The MTV Movie Awards have long been known for their special categories. Awards were given for such things as Best Duo, Best Kiss, Best Fight Against the System, and Next Generation. You can see the full list of nominees and winners at the MTV official site.
