The Best Kiss award went to a tender moment between two teenage boys played by Ashton Sanders and Jharrel Jerome in the Oscar-winning film Moonlight, and Sanders dedicated the win to "those who feel like the others, the misfits".
It might technically be all about the awards being dished out inside the 2017 MTV Movie And TV Awards show, but seeing as all the A-listers in attendance went through so much trouble to glam up for the big night, it seems only fair to take a few moments to check out their outfits.

Disney's live-action fairytale Beauty and the Beast won Best Movie and director Bill Condon thanked the female audience, saying "women have proven that they are huge and powerful audience and it's going to change the movie business".
Stranger Things beat out heavy-hitters like Game of Thrones, Atlanta, Insecure, Pretty Little Liars and This Is Us for the prize - and we're betting the pint-sized stars will be on the stage again next year to hand the popcorn right back to the cast of 13 Reasons Why (which was just renewed for a second season earlier in the day).
