MTV heralds summer viewing season with its Movie & TV Awards

The gender-neutral trophy for best actor in a movie at the 26th MTV Movie and TV Awards went to 27-year old actress Emma Watson for her performance in the new live-action version of "Beauty and the Beast".

"Logan" stars Hugh Jackman and newcomer Dafne Keen won Best Duo, "Get Out" star Daniel Kaluuya won the Next Generation award, while NBC family drama "This is Us" won Best Tearjerker. "And now, 15 years later, I'm with my whole family and you've given us the Generation Award".

That last award was presented by co-stars of the film smash "Get Out": a very blond Allison Williams in shimmering miniskirt, alongside a nervous-looking Lil Rey Howery.
