As for the movie categories, “Beauty and the Beast” was the big winner of the night. It also scored two big wins, one for Best Movie and one for Emma Watson as Belle in the Best Actor in a Movie category. It is worth noting that the awards were no longer gender-specific.

Another change was the MTV Generation Award which went to the entire “Fast and Furious” cast. In the past, only one individual could have won this award. There were also some new categories like Trending, Best American Story, and Next Generation. As for other awards, the one for Best Villain went to Jeffrey Dean Morgan for his role in “The Walking Dead”. The Best Kiss award went to Ashton Sanders and Jharrel Jerome in the critically-acclaimed movie “Moonlight”.
