The Avengers won a bunch of popcorn trophies at the MTV Movie And TV Awards


The Academy Awards briefly considered catering to the stupid masses with a Best Popular Movie category, but the all-powerful Academy should know by now that nobody can do fan-centric award categories like the folks at MTV. This year’s MTV Movie & TV Awards ceremony is giving out some usual stuff like Best Movie and Best Performance In A Movie (fuck your gendered categories, Oscars!), but it also has crucial stuff you won’t find anywhere else like Best Kiss, Reality Royalty, Most Frightened Performance, and Most Meme-Able Moment. Someday, god-willing, the Academy Awards will make some room for the Most Meme-Able Moment, but MTV is our only hope until then.

As for the winners, Avengers: Endgame won Best Movie, Lady Gaga made up for the Oscars by winning Best Performance In A Movie, Surviving R. Kelly won Best Documentary, and Daniel Levy won Best Comedic Performance for Schitt’s Creek-which is just wild, if only because there’s no way more people watch Schitt’s Creek than any of the other nominees.

Of course, like any award show, this one had some controversial winners as well, but it’s rare for a win to be as blatantly wrongheaded as it is to give Best Fight to Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva. That was a fun movie, sure, but Captain America vs. Thanos was one of the greatest moments in the history of cinema. He used Mjolnir! Come on!
