The MTV Movie & TV Awards are like the Oscars, the Emmys and the Kids Choice Awards all rolled into one and we totally love it. All the notoriety of our biggest stars with the casualness of an atmosphere where you could get slimed at any moment (we know this isn’t the awards show where that happens, but it’s more of a general vibe).

Big wins went to Avengers: Endgame for Best Movie, Big Mouth for Best Show, Lady Gaga (A Star is Born) for Best Performance in a Movie, Elisabeth Moss (A Handmaid’s Tale) for Best Performance in a show and Noah Centineo (To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before) for Best Breakthrough Performance. It’s not all about the wins though, it’s also about watching our faves give inspiring speeches and performances, and apparently transcend into the Beyoncé-like beings they’ve been destined to become (@ the Rock).

Here are all the biggest moments from the show including The Rock’s Bey moment, Dan Levy’s aggressively Canadian speech and Lizzo’s domination.

Sandra Bullock’s “For My Kids” Speech

We’re not crying, you’re crying! Sandy Bullock started off the night strong with her Most Frightened Performance win for Bird Box. She told the audience that she made the film for her kids (though they can’t see it until they’re 21) because it’s about family and the lengths a mama would go to for her children. D’aaaw!

“When I finished the film, I went to my babies and said ‘Here, mommy made this for you and even though you can’t see it until you’re 21, because apparently a movie about being a mommy is a horror film, you will know when you see it there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you,” she said.

The Rock is Beyoncé now

Ahead of the broadcast, The Rock shouted out the dancers that were going to make “this big boy look good and rep our cultures strong” and they certainly delivered. The recipient of the Generation Icon Award was preceded by a dance that blended modern hip-hop and Samoan dancing to represent the culture and complexity of the man we call The Rock.

Zachary Levi appropriately responded by kneeling to present the golden popcorn to the world’s icon (also, Zachary Levi is taller that The Rock???).

Let’s hear it for Dwayne Johnson and the “house full of strong ass women” behind him!

Speaking of Iconic Performances: Lizzo

How is it we hadn’t heard of Lizzo a few months ago and now she is everything?? Last night was her first ever awards show performance and she nailed it so hard, it would take a demolition team six days to get it out of our brains. The “Juice” singer took us to church, then to the club, then back to church for a full on Sister Act experience. We live!

Jada Pinkett Smith IS a Trailblazer

It’s obvious to all of us that Jada Pinkett Smith deserves the MTV Trailblazer Award, but apparently she was hesitant to accept it. In her speech, she talked about how external comparisons can sometimes paralyze us into thinking we’re not good enough for something and that everyone is blazing their own trails and overcoming obstacles whether external or internal.

“Very rarely do we applaud the trails that are blazed in the hidden rooms of the mind that are full of uncertainty, false beliefs and pain,” she said. “It’s these internal obstacles that must be challenged in order to muster the courage to forge new paths that we can see in the world.”

Noah Would Like to Thank… Lana’s Lips?

In a development that surprised no one, Lana Condor and Noah Centineo won Best Kiss for their smooch in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before (cue “Lovers” by Anna of the North). While the two didn’t demonstrate the kiss that won them the award onstage, Noah did thank Lana’s lips and then Lana used those lips to send a message of inclusivity.

“I just want to say, kiss who you want to kiss, love who you want to love and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise,” she said.

Seeing Triple

Brie Larson won Best Fight Scene for Captain Marvel and shared the award with her two stunt doubles/trainers Joanna Bennett and Renae Moneymaker. She called them the “living embodiment of Captain Marvel” and then stepped aside to let them “say whatever you want!”

This is the kind of delightful women supporting women content we NEED, WANT and DESERVE.

Survivors Tell Their Story

On a more serious note, Surviving R Kelly—the Lifetime docu-series in which dozens of women detailed their accounts of alleged abuses by R. Kelly—took home the award for Best Documentary and brought some of the survivors to the stage. Executive producer Brie Miranda Bryant spoke about the impact of the doc.

“This isn’t just a trophy to us, because this really speaks to the important cultural impact that this generated,” she said. “To our survivors and parents, we know the journey does not start or stop with this documentary, but the world is listening now. Because of your bravery, other girls and boys and women and men are now speaking without shame and being heard without judgment.”

Dan Levy Gives the Most Canadian Acceptance Speech

Canadian gem Dan Levy won Best Comedic Performance for his role as David Rose on Schitt’s Creek (an incredible feat considering Awkwafina was nominated for Crazy Rich Asians) and proceeded to give the most Canadian speech imaginable, thanking everyone around him and his dad for making him funny.

“I’m Canadian, this is very overwhelming for me, it likely won’t be funny,” he said. “I will say this—it’s very hard to be funny if you don’t have people to be funny with so for that, I want to thank our brilliant cast… and my dad, Eugene Levy, who I think through some sort of osmosis DNA has given me just a taste of the talent he has.”
