MTV Movie and TV Awards 2017: complete winners list

By Tribute on May 8, 2017 | 1 Comment

Emma WatsonMTV did something very different this year than it has in the past. It recognized television shows in the same categories as movies for the first time.

Another change the award show went through this year was the introduction of gender-neutral awards in its acting categories. This is something other awards shows such as the Emmys, Oscars and Golden Globes have failed to include in their programs.

The very popular racing franchise Fast and Furious was the recipient of the MTV Generation award. This marks the first year the award wasn’t received by an actor/actress.

Jordan Peele’s hit thriller Get Out led all nominations going into the fan-voted awards ceremony, but it was Beauty and the Beast that took home Movie of the Year.

The star of the film, Emma Watson, won the first ever gender-neutral award for Best Actor in a Movie. Everyone’s favorite Netflix series Stranger Things took home the award for best Show of the Year.

The show also revealed exclusive clips and trailers for films such as Spider-man: Homecoming, Wonder Woman and the remake of the film It.

Check out the full list of winners below. ~Brenden Zerihun
