A lot went down at the first ever MTV Movie and TV awards last night.so we're breaking down the best moments.

"I'd like to know if in your eyes "actor" and "actress" denote anatomy or identity and why it is necessary to denote either in the first place?" "The first acting award in history that doesn't separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience", she said in her acceptance speech. MTV's move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone, but for me, it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself into someone else's shoes. I mean.insane. But carrying on from that, we also won best show of the year. So much fun stuff happened at last nights MTV Movie and TV awards and these are just a few of our favorites.

Adam Devine hosted the proceedings and, tongue-in-cheek, described himself as a progressive personality before declaring, "I love Hugh Jackman". Accepting the award during Sunday's telecast of the MTV awards, an emotional Brown said she was honored to play "a badass, female, iconic character" on the Netflix show.

Next, the Best Kiss Award was given to the only gay kissing couple nominated.

U.S. Representative Maxine Waters presented the award for Best Fight Against the System and said each of the nominees "pushes back against the bullies and uses their platform to inspire us all". "Are you scared of me?"

Movies "Hidden Figures", the "Fast and Furious" franchise and Trevor Noah of "The Daily Show" were also winners on the night.

"There is one person I aspire to be every single day", he said, "and that is my mom: a powerful, strong black woman who never listened when people told her she couldn't be more".
