List of winners from the 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards

The Best Kiss award went to a tender moment between two teenage boys played by Ashton Sanders and Jharrel Jerome in the Oscar-winning film "Moonlight", and Sanders dedicated the win to "those who feel like the others, the misfits". It was a great night for the series and its fans - especially since the late Barb made a comeback at the awards show in a hilariously crowd-pleasing way. Along with tv shows being added to the mix, two new categories were also added - "Trending" and "Best Musical Moment".

Brown called the Stranger Things cast and crew "my second family" and cried while referencing her real family, thanking her mom and dad "for being so supportive".

In accepting the award for her role as Belle in Disney's live-action version of "Beauty and the Beast" on Sunday night, Watson said "empathy and the ability to use your imagination should have no limits".

Tongue-in-cheek, Devine described himself as a progressive personality fully equal to the night's high-minded theme.

Daniel Kaluuya and Milton "Lil Rel" Howery, the stars of surprise smash hit thriller Get Out, got the prizes for "next generation" and best comedic performance respectively.

The eighth Fast and Furious movie co-stars Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson and Jordana Brewster took the stage to accept the award.

The comments from the British actress won praise from many on social media, but drew a rebuke from Piers Morgan, the former CNN talk show host who now hosts "Good Morning Britain" on ITV.
