Women took home several of the night’s biggest awards, including best performance in a show (Elisabeth Moss, The Handmaid’s Tale) and in a movie (Lady Gaga, A Star is Born). The show features gender-neutral categories.
Brie Larson, who won the Best Fight award for her battle against Minn-Erva (Gemma Chan) in Captain Marvel, brought her stunt doubles, Joanna Bennett and Renae Moneymaker, on stage to recognize them for their work.
“They are the living embodiment of Captain Marvel,” Larson said as she stepped aside to let the women give speeches in which they thanked the actress for the rare acknowledgement on an awards show stage.
Teen heartthrob Noah Centineo won trophies for Breakthrough Performance and Best Kiss, which he shared with Lana Condor for Netflix’s teen rom-com To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.
"“Kiss who you want to kiss. Love who you want to love, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise,”" - Lana Candor
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson accepted MTV’s Generation Award with fanfare, running down the stage amidst a blend of hip-hop and Samoan dancers with screens reading “The Rock” in flaming letters behind him.
“The most powerful thing we can be is ourselves,” said Johnson, who is half-black and half-Samoan. He also reminded the audience of its responsibility to reach back for others in the midst of success.
Jada Pinkett Smith accepted the Trailblazer Award, presented to her by Girls Trip co-star Tiffany Haddish, and assured attendees that each of them are trailblazing by leading the way and fighting for others.
Sandra Bullock, who won the award for Most Frightened Performance in Bird Box, said she was happy her son could see her accept her award in a room with “real life superheroes” like Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel.
