The 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards celebrated the best of Young Hollywood on May 7 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California, awarding Golden Popcorns to actors and stories across film and television that influenced youth culture in the past year.

Actor and comedian, Adam Devine gave a ‘beauty’ and a ‘beast’ of a performance, kicking off the legendary party with a fire-filled grand opening featuring an all-star cast of cameos including Lil Rel Howery, Millie Bobby Brown, Chrissy Metz, Blake Anderson, Josh Gad, Hugh Jackman, Hailee Steinfeld, Rebel Wilson and DJ Nasty.

Billions’ star, Asia Kate Dillon presented the first award of the night to Emma Watson for the non-gendered Best Actor in a Movie category with Millie Bobby Brown later accepting the first-ever Best Actor in a Show award.

Star and producer, Vin Diesel accepted the Generation Award on behalf of the enduring motion-picture franchise Fast & Furious, marking the first time a film franchise was honoured instead of an individual actor.

Diesel was joined on-stage by his franchise co-stars Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Jordana Brewster.

J Balvin and Pitbull then took the stage with Camila Cabello to perform their steamy hit single, ‘Hey Ma’, which was featured in the most recent installment The Fate of the Furious.

The first-ever Best Fight the System award was presented by Congresswoman Maxine Waters and Blackish’s Tracee Ellis Ross to Taraji P. Henson for Hidden Figures.
