Popcorn party! The 2021 MTV Movie and TV Awards highlighted so many stars that it spanned two nights, Sunday, May 16, and Monday, May 17.
Leslie Jones brought the laughs as the show’s host during Sunday’s presentation, which took place at the Palladium in Los Angeles, and took home a trophy of her own. The awards ranged from Best Movie and Best TV Show to Best Kiss and Best Hero.
MTV announced the nominees one month prior, with WandaVision taking the lead with five nods, including Best Show and Best Performance in a Show for Elizabeth Olsen’s portrayal of Wanda Maximoff/The Scarlet Witch. Bridgerton, Emily in Paris and The Boys also cleaned up nicely with multiple nominations each.
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm earned three nominations, topping the film categories, while Judas and the Black Messiah came in with two total nods. Promising Young Woman, Soul and To All the Boys: Always and Forever rounded out the Best Movie category.
Earlier this month, the network revealed that Scarlett Johansson would take home the Generation Award during Sunday’s show, celebrating her work in the entertainment industry over the past two-plus decades. Sacha Baron Cohen also received a special trophy, the Comedic Genius Award, on Sunday for his years of comedy and success in the film industry.
The coveted golden popcorn statue for Best Kiss, however, was a toss-up between some of your favorite TV couples. As one of the most talked about categories in MTV Movie & TV Awards’ history, this year’s nominees were all worthy of a standing ovation for their smooching skills.
Bridgerton’s Regé-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor were strong contenders, but they couldn’t beat out real-life couple Chase Stokes and Madelyn Cline from Outer Banks.
Stokes, 28, and Cline, 23, joined a group of iconic Best Kiss recipients on Sunday, including Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams for The Notebook and Selma Blair and Sarah Michelle Gellar for Cruel Intentions. Their onstage smooch rivaled those of years’ past and helped Stokes get through his acceptance speech with ease.
