The MTV movie awards have been going on for the past 25 years. Although it aired on May 7th which was a while ago, all the speeches will make you speechless.

It was initially called the “MTV Movie Awards,” but just this year changed to the “MTV Movie and TV Awards.”  So, not just your favorite movies win awards, but also your favorite shows.

The event gives many awards that are very diverse, but very true. Some consisting of Tearjerker, Best Duo, Movie of the Year, Show of the Year, and a lot more.

Tearjerker is the award that picks a certain scene out of a movie or TV show that literally will make you cry at that very moment. I didn’t know some of the shows and I still cried.

The next award Best Duo was given to Hugh Jackman and Dafne Keen for their performance in “Logan,” which I think was pretty accurate they were amazing.

My favorite award, Show of the Year was given to the Netflix original show “Stranger Things,” and everyone went crazy, even me.

Next, best moments. There were multiple best moments, but here were just a few. First, was Millie Bobby Brown’s powerful speech after receiving Best Actor/Actress in a Show. She was thanking fans, family, friends, and her second family the Stranger Things cast and crew. She was crying and saying such powerful things, she made me cry.

Next, was another female lead, Emma Watson. Her speech was based on Belle from Beauty and The Beast, and how young girls and even boys should be looking up to her for her bravery, her reading skills, and more.

Lastly, was the 13 Reasons Why cast presenting the Show of The Year to the Stranger Things cast. Even though they didn’t win an award, the show has gotten so big and popular it was exciting for fans to see them on TV.

This award show was very exciting. Seeing all your favorite actors/actresses going up against each other is very stressful because you don’t know who will win. It was an amazing show with really interesting contestants and we can only hope next years show will be as exciting.
