MTV Movie & TV Awards Winners: The Complete List

The MTV Movie & TV Awards returned to television Monday, with host Zachary Levi and a number of pop culture favorites.

Dominating this year’s nominations with four apiece were front runners “Avengers: Endgame,” which took home the evening’s best movie award, and “Game of Thrones,” which won best show. The Oscar-nominated documentary “RBG” also scored four nods but was overtaken by the evening’s best documentary winner “Surviving R. Kelly.”

This year’s show also featured three new categories: reality royalty (“Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta”), most meme-able moment (“The Bachelor”) and best real-life hero (Ruth Bader Ginsburg) in addition to the show’s new tradition — started in 2017 — which refrains from separating nominees by gender.

Additionally, Dwayne Johnson was honored with the Generation Award, and Jada Pinkett Smith took home the Trailblazer Award.
