MTV Awards salute 'Beauty and the Beast,' 'Stranger Things'

The MTV Movie and TV Awards took place on Sunday, May 7, 2017, in Los Angeles, California.

Disney's live-action adaptation "Beauty and the Beast" was named Movie of the Year at the 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards.

The 27-year-old beat Daniel Kaluuya, Hailee Steinfeld, Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy and Taraji P. Henson to the coveted accolade.

Millie was the youngest of the bunch, going up against Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Gina Rodriguez, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Mandy Moore.

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.

Navy secretary withdrew his name because of possible conflicts of interest with financial entanglements, as did Trump's first U.S. Senate on Monday confirmed Heather Wilson as Air Force Secretary, the first service secretary nominee to be approved by Congress.

The ceremony, hosted by comedian Adam Devine, replaced the 25-year reign of the MTV Movie Awards by introducing prizes for shows on television and streaming services.

This year, the MTV Awards did away with gendered categories, to many people's applause (and some people's chagrin.), following in the footsteps of the Grammys, which has long celebrated gender-neutral nominations.

Moonlight's Jharrel Jerome and Ashton Sanders won the best kiss award beating La La Land's Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling.

The "This Is Us" star wowed in a burgundy latex dress which she paired with ballet flats and earrings, but after receiving backlash with regards to the stylish ensemble and her weight, she took to Twitter to slam those who claimed she didn't pull off the look.

In fact, she told the website she wanted to "bring culture" to the red carpet.
