Pas­sion­ate speeches were the highlight of MTV Movie Awards

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Arare spell of wet weather in Los An­ge­les, US, might have shut down the red car­pet be­fore the 2017 MTV Movie Awards on Sun­day, but the evening was still high­spir­ited — when it came to drinks and winners’ speeches!

The pre­sen­ters and winners spoke pas­sion­ately about so­cially-rel­e­vant is­sues. “Women have proven they’re a huge and pow­er­ful au­di­ence, and it’s go­ing to change the movie business,” said di­rec­tor Bill Con­don, thank­ing the fe­male au­di­ence for his film, Beauty and the Beast’s Best Movie win. Ac­tor Ash­ton San­ders, who shared The Best Kiss award with Jhar­rel Jerome in the Os­car-win­ning film, Moon­light, ded­i­cated it to “those who feel like the oth­ers, the mis­fits.”

Ac­cept­ing the Gen­er­a­tion Award for the Fast and Fu­ri­ous ac­tion fran­chise, ac­tor Vin Diesel thanked “a gen­er­a­tion that was will­ing to ac­cept this mul­ti­cul­tural fran­chise where it didn't mat­ter what color your skin was or what coun­try you're from.”

On a dif­fer­ent note, the host for the night, ac­tor Adam DeVine kept in sync with what this an­nual fan­voted, youth-ori­en­tated awards do is known for — ir­rev­er­ent mo­ments, ex­plicit jokes and un­con­ven­tional award cat­e­gories.
