MTV celebrates summer viewing season with Movie & TV Awards

The show is recognizing men and women of TV and film together for the first time at Sunday's ceremony. Jharrel Jerome, left, and Ashton Sanders, winners of the award for best kiss for "Moonlight", pose in the press room at the MTV Movie and TV Awards at the Shrine Auditorium on Sunday, May 7, 2017, in Los Angeles.

"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", Watson said on stage.

Streaming platform Netflix enjoyed the night's biggest spotlight when its 1980s sci-fi series Stranger Things won the inaugural Show of the Year award.

As the caption "Adam Gets It" flashed on the screen, Devine declared, "I love Hugh Jackman, but I call him Hugh Jack-PERSON".

And turning to another of the night's nominees, "Beauty and the Beast", he said, "I call it 'Multidimensional woman with her own dynamic traits, and the beast'".

Logan stars Hugh Jackman and newcomer Dafne Keen won Best Duo, Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya won the Next Generation award, while NBC family drama This is Us won Best Tearjerker.

That last award was presented by co-stars of the film smash "Get Out": a blond Allison Williams, in shimmering miniskirt, alongside a nervous-looking Lil Rey Howery. And now, 15 years later, I'm with my whole family, and you're giving us the Generation Award.

Facebook TV is coming this summer, report says
Facebook is also focusing on producing more teen-centric shows apart from the range of content that the company has planned for. Hope has run multiple production companies and produced some of the most critically acclaimed films of the last two decades.

Several new categories were added this year: Best American Story, for the program or film that "showcases America at its best"; Best Fight Against the System, which celebrates underdog efforts and social justice; top trending moment; and best musical moment.

The cast of the "Fast and Furious" franchise were scheduled to receive the Generation Award, which Vin Diesel was set to accept.

Trevor Noah of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" was named Best Host.

Even one of the night's biggest awards couldn't escape a bit of mischief-making.

Disney's live-action fairytale Beauty and the Beast won Best Movie and director Bill Condon thanked the female audience, saying "women have proven that they are huge and powerful audience and it's going to change the movie business".

U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters arrived trash-talking President Donald Trump, while seven members of the cast from the Netflix hit "Stranger Things" teamed up for interviews arm-in-arm.

Frazier Moore reported from NY.
