Best Moments of the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards

Posted on May 08, 2017

We don’t know what you were doing last night, but we at UMUSIC were watching the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards. In case you missed it, here are our picks for the best moments of the show.

Hailee Steinfeld Dressed as Belle

Okay so 1) how unexpected was Hailee Steinfeld‘s appearance in the opening number and 2) how cute did she look in her Belle outfit? The show started off with the host, Adam DeVine, as well as others singing and dressed as characters from Beauty & the Beast

#Throwback to the Beauty & the Beast soundtrack if you wanna take a listen 🙂 

Emma Watson Accepting the First Genderless Acting Award

Emma Watson won the award for “Best Actor”, for her role in Beauty & the Beast, and in her acceptance speech, emphasized on the fact that it was the first ever genderless acting award, having both male and female nominees in the category. AHHH-MAZING. Below is an excerpt from her speech.

“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. Empathy and the ability to use your imagination should have no limits.” -Emma Watson

The Cast of “Stranger Things”

Millie Bobby Brown aka ‘Eleven’ in Stranger Things, received the award for ‘Best Actor in a Show’, her first solo award to accept. We loved when she got emotional while thanking her family. Now all together…AWWWWW! We totally feel you Millie, and we would have reacted the same way if we were in your shoes! ❤️

The actor even scored a picture with heartthrob, Zac Efron, who admitted to fanboy-ing over Brown. #GOALSSS


Later in the evening, the cast of Stranger Things struck again, claiming the award for ‘Show of the Year’. In their acceptance speech, Caleb McLaughlin, (who plays Lucas in the show) thanked Netflix, saying “where would we be without [it]? Like, literally! When you’re having a bad day, what do you do when you go home?” Seriously though, we agree!!

Big Sean’s Performance

For his performance, Big Sean performed his latest single, Jump Out the Window. He looked cool as always, sporting a backwards red cap, stripped white and red shirt and ripped jeans. His performance was visually stimulating, starting with him on a platform, before descending to the main stage. Not only was his performance litttt but as a treat to his fans, he released the official music video to the track!! Take a look at it below!

Zendaya Intro-ing the new Spider-man Trailer

Our gurllll Zendaya stars in the newest Spider-Man movie, “Homecoming” and yesterday, during the award show, she and Tom Holland debuted a new clip of the movie. Check it out below.
