2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards: Complete Winners List

The newly revamped MTV Movie & TV Awards are aired for the first time ever Sunday night, hosted by “Pitch Perfect” and “Workaholics” star Adam Devine.

For the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards — known previously as the MTV Movie Awards from 1992-2016 — the network honored fan-favorites in both film and television. “Beauty and the Beast” took home movie of the year, while “Stranger Things” won the first-ever show of the year award.

This was also the first incarnation of the event to not differentiate between actors based on gender. Instead, female, male, and gender non-binary actors are all competed for the top acting awards.
