MTV celebrates summer viewing season with Movie & TV Awards

The 17-year-old singer was walking the carpet when the hail started pouring down on Sunday (May 7) at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

Noah is set to perform during the event tonight, so make sure to tune in.

The bit was one of host Adam DeVine's best of the night. In the press room, dry socks and T-shirts were distributed to sodden members of the media.

Adam DeVine kicked off the show as Beast in a spoof of "Beauty and the Beast" that included guest appearances by Josh Gad, Hailee Steinfeld as Belle and Rebel Wilson as Mrs. Potts.

The show is keeping up its traditional irreverence, though, with awards recognizing the best hero, villain, kiss and duo across television and film.

That last award was presented by co-stars of the film smash "Get Out": a very blond Allison Williams in shimmering miniskirt, alongside a nervous-looking Lil Rey Howery.

"Are you scared of me?"


"To me it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself in someone else's shoes and that doesn't need to be separated into two different categories", she said to cheers. Franchise producer and film star Vin Diesel accepted the award and called his "family", fellow actors Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson and Michelle Rodriguez, on stage to join him. Several new categories were added this year: Best American Story, for the program or film that "showcases America at its best"; Best Fight Against the System, which celebrates underdog efforts and social justice; top trending moment; and best musical moment.

Best Host went to Trevor Noah and best reality competition went to RuPaul's Drag Race.

Then, among his thanks, he voiced gratitude to President Donald Trump "for the comedy".

The first-ever Show of the Year: "Stranger Things". Presenting Movie of the Year, Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn comically bobbled the title (a la the Oscars), first announcing "La La Light", then "Moonland".

"I want to thank the Duffer Brothers because they've created a badass, female, iconic character that I've got the honor to play".

Frazier Moore reported from NY.
