Overnight, Hollywood has gathered to celebrate the best talent on TV and film at the MTV Movie and TV Awards at the Shrine Auditorium.
Homegrown hero Hugh Jackman and his Logan co-star Dafne Keen scooped up the Best Duo award while the Fast and Furious franchise used their time in the spotlight accepting the Generation Award to thank a very special cast member.
But it was Emma Watson's somewhat lengthy speech for a newly-created accolade that divided fans...
Check out the most talked about moments from the night below!

Vin Diesel pays tribute to Paul Walker

The Fast and Furious star had the audience wiping the tears away as he accepted the Generation Award for the rev-head franchise, using the moment to honour their late co-star Paul Walker, who passed away in a car crash in 2013.
“In 2002, I was standing on this stage, and MTV had given Paul Walker and I an award for Best Duo. And now, 15 years later, I'm with my whole family, and you're giving us the Generation Award,” Vin told the crowd.
Before adding of his treasured friend Paul, who affectionately called Pablo: "I could never stand on the stage and talk about Fast and Furious without giving love to my brother, Pablo, our brother Pablo, we hope you are proud, thank you so much.”
"I could never stand on the stage and talk about Fast and Furious without giving love to my brother," Vin said during his acceptance speech.
Paul tragically died in 2013 in a car crash.

Millie Bobby Brown weeps tears of joy - world falls even more in love with her

At just 13, you can hardly blame Stranger Things favourite Millie Bobby Brown for being taken aback by her mind-blowing success.
And when the British actress landed the Best Actor in a Show at the MTV Movie Awards, the magnitude of the moment blew away the talented wunderkid.
The Stranger Things star was stoked with her win.
“I want to thank my family and my mum and dad for being so supportive,” Millie explained through tears and a lot of gratitude.“Lastly I want to thank to Duffer Brothers because they’ve created a bad-arse, female, iconic character that I’ve got the honour to play,” she added of her role as Eleven.
Here’s to many more awards to come!

Accio winner! Emma Watson still gets slammed after making history

Our favourite witch and real-life hero Emma Watson is continuing her plight for equality.
The 27-year-old picked up the popcorn bucket for the combined-gender Best Actor category for her role as Belle in Beauty and the Beast, aka the first ever gender-neutral accolade.
“The first acting award in history that doesn’t separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience," she said in her speech.
Hermione Granger just continues to cast her spell on us.
Adding, “To me, it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes. And that doesn’t need to be separated into two different categories.”
Her speech, which you can read in full here, had some viewers expressing unworthy shade, claiming it went for too long.
“Emma Watson is giving this profound speech. Girl it’s the #MTVAwards .. Not the Oscars. Sit down already,” one person tweeted.
But not everyone was as harsh.
"Am I the only one who actually enjoyed Emma Watson's speech at the mtv movie awards? #MTVMovieAwards2017 #EmmaWatson," another person noted.
Being the brightest witch of our age is a tough gig.

Chrissy Metz slays in this latex dress

STOP. IT. Chrissy Metz is FIERCE.
The This Is Us actress rocked up to the ceremony in a stunning deep-red LATEX baby doll dress.
We love Chrissy's bold look... And it doesn't hurt having Milo on her arm.
The 36-year-old presented the Best Duo award with drum roll, her on-screen dad Jack, actor Milo Ventimiglia.
Taking us back to the '70s, Milo stayed in character, telling the crowd, "You know, Princess, these MTV awards, they were a little different in my day.”
What could possibly stop such a fab moment…

The winner is Hugh Jackman!

Our favourite X-Man was flying the Aussie flag high and proud taking out the Best Duo award with his Logan daughter, Dafne Keen.
The 48-year-old and his pint-sized co-star channelled their inner Wolverine as they accepted their popcorn statue.
“This is a character I love. I owe my career to this character," the 48-year-old beamed.
