The 7 Most Memorable Moments from the 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards

The 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards was definitely a night to remember.

The star-studded event celebrated the best and brightest in film and television and made history by giving out the first ever genderless acting awards.

If you missed the ceremony, here's our roundup of the most memorable moments from the evening.

Emma Watson's inspiring speech

Emma Watson delivered an empowering speech to fans after she was named Best Actor in a Movie for Beauty and the Beast.

"The first acting award in history that doesn’t separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience,” she said.

“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.”

After reading out the nominees for Movie of the Year, Amy declared that the winner was La La Light, before Goldie said that it was actually Moonland.

Eventually the Snatched co-stars revealed that Beauty and the Beast had in fact won the big honour.

Millie Bobby Brown breaking down in tears

An emotional Millie Bobby Brown choked back tears while accepting the Best Actor in a Show award for her portrayal of Eleven in Stranger Things.

"I want to thank the cast and crew for being my second family. I love you," she said while crying, as her co-stars adorably cheered her on from the audience.

Millie ended her speech by thanking the Duffer brothers for creating "a badass, female, iconic character that I've got the honour to play."

The Beauty and the Beast opening number

Adam DeVine opened the show with an elaborate parody of Beauty and the Beast, in which he was the Beast.

The host was joined by Hailee Steinfeld, Rebel Wilson, Josh Gad and more stars as they belted out musical numbers from the smash hit film.

And the best part of the whole thing was Emma Watson's delight at watching Hailee as Belle from the audience.

The acceptance speech from the Fast and Furious cast

Vin Diesel paid tribute to the late Paul Walker as he accepted the Generation Award alongside Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster and Tyrese Gibson for the Fast and Furious franchise.

"In 2002, I was standing on this stage, and MTV had given Paul Walker and I an award for Best Duo. And now, 15 years later, I'm with my whole family, and you're giving us the Generation Award," he told the audience.

"I could never stand on the 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."

Moonlight winning Best Kiss

Ashton Sanders and Jharrel Jerome gave an inspiring speech after they won Best Kiss for their poignant beach scene in Moonlight.

“On a real note, I think it is safe to say that it is OK for us young performers, especially us minority performers, to step out of the box," Jharrel said.

"It’s OK for us to step out of the box and do whatever it takes to tell the story and whatever it takes to make the change. This award is for that. It’s for us artists who are out there, who need to do whatever it takes to get people to wake up."

Ashton added: “This award is bigger than Jharrel and I. This represents more than a kiss. This is for those who feel like the others, the misfits — this represents us.”

The new Wonder Woman trailer

Plenty of exciting footage from upcoming movies aired during the awards, including a new clip from Spiderman: Homecoming and a trailer for It.
