It wouldn't be an awards ceremony without scandal! BFFs Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Kevin Hart aired their dirty laundry for all to see during the 2017 Awards, taking stabs at each throughout the night.

The feud began when Kevin Hart gave his acceptance speech for Favorite Comedic Movie Actor. He started off by thanking those who had helped him along the way— with the exception of one person:

"This one goes to all the co-stars that I’ve had, except The Rock, cos he hasn’t helped me. He hasn't helped me at all. You’ve actually lessened my talent, it went down since you’ve been in my life."

Check out the whole speech here:

Unfortunately, that didn't go down too well with Johnson, who had the perfect response:

It Was On

Luckily, Johnson got a chance to get back at smart-mouthed Hart during his own acceptance speech. He won the award for Premium Series Actor, and took the opportunity to deliver a scathing message:

"It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice. It's more important to be nice, unless you're talking to Kevin Hart, in which you say, 'Go fuck yourself'".

A Surprise Nomination

Petty tiffs aside, there was still another surprise in store for Johnson that night. In an unexpected turn of events, another category was announced: "Favorite Dwayne Johnson".

The real Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson found himself up against nominees Dwayne "The Insurance Adjuster" Johnson, Dwayne "My Name Is Diane" Johnson, and Dwayne "Literally Just A Rock" Johnson.

So who took the award home? Why, Dwayne "Literally Just A Rock" Johnson, of course!

After being robbed of his own award, the (real) Rock decided to put their differences aside and make good with his Central Intelligence co-star again:
