This weekend, the newly-renamed MTV Movie & TV Awards took place at Santa Monica Airport’s Barker Hangar and brought together the biggest stars from a wide range of domains, like movies, TV shows, and music. Tiffany Haddish hosted the big event and even went home with two golden popcorn trophies herself for her amazing comedic performance in Girls Trip: Best Comedic Performance and Scene Stealer. As for the nominees, Netflix’s worldwide phenomenon Stranger Things and Marvel’s incredibly successful and groundbreaking superhero movie Black Panther led the pack, with seven nominations each.
There were 14 categories from which the winners were chosen. The event also featured a number of incredible performances from Chloe x Halle, who are going to open for Beyonce and Jay-Z’s On The Road II tour this summer. Nick Jonas also performed in a duet with Mustard. Some of the night’s special award went to Lena Waithe, the Emmy-winning writer, and actor Chris Pratt. After recently experimenting with genderless categories, the event abandoned them for good. Four of the five Best Performance in a Show nominees were female, while two of the five nominees in the Best Performance in a Movie category were also female.
