One of Hollywood’s biggest nights was hosted by Leslie Jones last night, May 16. The awards show continues tonight on MTV at 9 p.m. EDT/PDT with the MTV Movie & TV Awards spin-off, MTV Movie & TV Awards Unscripted. Here are some of the cutest, cringiest, and most fan-worthy moments of the night!
Outer Banks’ Best Kiss reenactment
If the MTV Movie & TV Awards are famous (more than they already are) for one thing, it’s the steamy and iconic Best Kiss reenactments. No one, and I mean NO ONE can forget about Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling’s reenactment from The Notebook!
I see what’s trending from the MTV Movie Awards. Don’t talk to me about ANY KISS unless you are speaking of Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams accepting the award for best kiss in 2005 thank you goodnight. pic.twitter.com/KdOdTlAeIx

Then, there was this other ~steamy~ kiss onstage at the awards show:

That’s right, Madelyn Cline and Chase Stokes took home the golden popcorn for Best Kiss! If only our kisses with significant others could be like the ones in the movies, am I right? We would be “panicking,” too!
The big winner of television: WandaVision
We can’t forget about the big winner of last night’s show, WandaVision! Elizabeth Olsen and Kathryn Hahn took home Best Fight and their “reenactment” of what their fight would’ve looked like without special effects “stunts,” as they say, in this tweet:
OK I *NEED* at least one more @wandavision episode so I can see Elizabeth Olsen and Kathryn Hahn on screen together again.

They sure are the cutest pair of arch nemeses we’ve ever seen! With that being said, Elizabeth Olsen took home Best Performance on TV while Kathryn Hahn took home Best Villain.
Tanner Buchanan is ‘all that,’ right, Addison Rae?
There was yet another on-screen kiss at the MTV Movie & TV Awards — WHAT! That’s right, Addison Rae kissed her He’s All That co-star, Tanner Buchanan. They may not have taken home Best Kiss but they did get to present the golden popcorn to Madelyn Cline and Chase Stokes.
Seventeen predicted that they were possibly promoting He’s All That, which is set to premiere on Netflix on August 27. But we do have to admit that Tanner already established the hottie factor on Cobra Kai, so who could blame Addison!?
But then there’s this:
HELP I JUST FOUND OUT THAT TANNER BUCHANAN HAS A GF AND HE KISSED ADDISON RAE LIVE IN FRONT OF SO MANY PEOPLE. IT WAS OBVIOUSLY FOR PROMO FOR THEIR UPCOMING NETFLIX FILM, BUT STILL pic.twitter.com/17Q1qfs172

So Scarlett Johansson’s husband slimed her… just at the wrong awards show. (If you know, you know.)
