Here's what made news at this year's MTV Movie Awards;

A Pioneering Beauty in Awards

Emma Watson makes history as the first individual to win the 'Best Actor' award in a category with nominees from both sexes. She won it for her role in Beauty and the Beast and topped it off with an inspiring speech (as you’d expect from a speaker at the United Nations)

A Strange Thing about Winning

Millie Bobby Brown poses on the carpet in her all-white ensemble; the second individual with the honour of being winner of a gender-neutral acting award (Best Actor for her role in the show Stranger Things).

Fire Alarms

Hailee Steinfeld sets the carpet on fire in a mini dress by Fausto Puglisi.


Omg @haileesteinfeld 😍✨ #MTVAwards

Just One Reason Why

The leads of '13 Reasons Why' take up the camera lens as they haunt us with their societal relevance to mental health today; Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford) and Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette).


In love with these two ❤️#MTVAwards

The Jungle Look

While J-Lo wore this look to the 42nd Grammy Awards, MTV (and us) couldn’t help but point out how many memories bloomed the moment we saw a similar (though less scandalous) look on Jillian Rose Reed.


@jillianrosereed pulled off some serious @jlo vibes on the #MTVAwards red carpet 🍃

Zac Efron star of the High School Musical Movies and most recently Baywatch , brought his good looks to the awards and presented the Best Actor award to Millie Bobby Brown; both of them in spotless white.
