The 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards was held in the early morning on Monday. For most Malaysians, it wasn’t easy to catch the show as we have other commitments (read: work, school, etc). If you missed it, fret not, ‘cos we’re here to update you 😉
This year’s edition, hosted by “Pitch Perfect”‘s Adam Devine, is a complete revamp of the original awards, which was known as the MTV Movie Awards. Instead of only giving out awards to movies, MTV has decided to recognise TV shows too.
A few more changes were implemented, with MTV deciding to abolish the gender-based awards. Instead of awarding actors and actresses respectively, only one award was handed out to nominees despite their gender.
Not only did “Beauty And The Beast” won “Movie Of The Year”, Emma Watson’s performance as Belle also won her the “Best Actor In A Movie” award. This was followed by “Stranger Things” as “Show Of The Year”, with Millie Bobby Brown winning “Best Actor In A Show”.
Although “Get Out” led the show with 7 nominations, they only managed 2 win: main actor Daniel Kaluuya for the “Next Generation” award and TSA agent Lil Rel Howery for “Best Comedic Performance”.
Other highlights include the release of the “Wonder Woman” full trailer, new footage for the horror movie “IT”, as well as a sneak peek for “Spider-Man: Homecoming”.
J Balvin, Pitbull, and Camila Cabello also came together for the 1st TV performance of “Hey Ma”, the original soundtrack for “Fate Of The Furious”. The performance was held to commemorate the “MTV Generation Award” win for “The Fast And The Furious” franchise.
