The MTV Movie Awards debuted in 1992 and immediately made its reputation for poking major fun at mainstream Hollywood.
This year, the tradition continued with 2017 nominees announced in April (also the WINNERS, below). The live awards ceremony aired on Sunday, May 7, 2017 beginning at 8:00 PM ET/ 5:00 PM PT. Hosting the 2017 ceremony was actor and funnyman Adam Devine.
New this year? It's the MTV Movie & TV Awards - with the announcement that the hippest awards show in Tinsel Town is adding TV categories to the list this year for the first time ever. Two new categories this year included Trending and Best Musical Moment.
Leading the nominees in 2017 (see below) was the horror flick Get Out with six nods. Beauty and the Beast and Stranger Things got four nominations each while Hidden Figures, Logan, and Moonlight scored three nominations each. On the TV side, Atlanta and Game of Thrones also received three nods apiece.
Presenters included an all-star cast including : Emma Watson, Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Vin Diesel, Cara Delevingne, Milo Ventimiglia, Hailee Steinfeld, Asia Kate Dillon, Ansel Elgort, Chrissy Metz, Snoop Dogg, Allison Williams, Daniel Kaluuya, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Amy Schumer Gal Gadot, and the cast of the Netflix hit “13 Reasons Why.”
As always, movie sneak peeks were also be a part of the night's festivies. This year, they included a glimpse of the upcoming Stephen King adaptation “It,” the highly anticipated Marvel film “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and a preview of “Transformers: The Last Knight.”
Performing on the big night was Noah Cyrus and Big Sean. In addition, J Balvin, Pitbull and Camila Cabello performed an English version of "Hey Ma" which is included on the The Fate of the Furious soundtrack.
Announced earlier, the 2017 MTV Generation Award winner was the cast of The Fast and The Furious franchise, marking the first time that a movie, and not an individual, received the award.
All about the MTV Movie & TV Awards
Over the years, MTV has gone mainstream itself, and today (despite the continued tongue-in-cheek ribbing) has successfully positioned itself as "the Oscars for millennials."
Product placement, in the form of trailers for upcoming summer blockbusters, are also a major part of the springtime awards broadcast.
Of course, that's not to say that the MTV Movie & TV Awards has ever taken itself too seriously. You'll won't ever see honors for directing, makeup, or technical achievement. Instead, MTV usually puts the spotlight on performances that are truly crowd pleasing -- such as "Best Kiss", "Best Hero" and "Best Villain".
In the recent past, special movie shorts have also been produced for the show satirizing movie blockbusters, for example, as Les Misérables and Magic Mike during the 2013 telecast.
This year, audiences can look forward to much the same this year as the awards show sets the tone that is refreshingly irreverent. To MTV, and its target audience, it's all just show biz.
