The 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards brought pop culture's greatest hits to the fore for another stellar ceremony. From progressive decisions like having the Best Actor award be non gender-specific, to the Best Kiss award going to Best Picture winner Moonlight, the 2017 MTV awards showed that despite alarming trends in recent times toward exclusiveness and prejudice, great performances from people of all walks of life are still appreciated and rewarded.
