'Stranger Things' scares up big prizes at MTV Movie and TV Awards

"Beauty and the Beast," "Fast and Furious" and "Logan" were among the night's other winners.

The kids from Hawkins, Indiana made it big in Hollywood Sunday night at the MTV Movie and TV Awards. "Stranger Things," Netflix's delightfully creepy 1980s-set drama, won the first-ever Show of the Year award, and star Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) won the award for Best Actor in a Show.

The Show of the Year award was presented to "Stranger Things" actors by the young cast of "13 Reasons Why," another popular Netflix show. "Stranger Things" beat out "Atlanta," "Game of Thrones," "Pretty Little Liars," "Insecure" and "This Is Us."

Young star Caleb McLaughlin was sure to thank Netflix, saying, "Where would we be without Netflix? Like, literally! When you're having a bad day, what do you do when you go home?"

Brown, who's just 13, became emotional as she accepted her Best Actor award, choking up while she thanked the cast and crew "for being my second family."

But the power came back into her voice as she thanked show creators Matt and Ross Duffer, saying, "They've created a badass, female, iconic character, that I've got the honor to play."

The new live-action version of "Beauty and the Beast" also did well, claiming the honor for best movie, and for best actor for Emma Watson's role as Belle.

The awards show also opened with a "Beauty and the Beast"-themed musical number featuring host Adam Devine as the Beast, Hailee Steinfeld as Belle and Rebel Wilson as teapot Mrs. Potts. "I wanted to look hot, I'm wearing a teapot, man this really blows," she sang in tune to the movie's theme song.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan won the Best Villain award for his portrayal of Negan on "The Walking Dead," and to balance out his evilness, Taraji P. Henson won Best Hero for playing NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson in "Hidden Figures."

Hugh Jackman and young Dafne Keen won the award for Best Duo for their team-up in "Logan."

The Fast and Furious movie series received the MTV Generation Award, which has never before been given to a film franchise rather than an actor. Star Vin Diesel remembered late "Furious" co-star Paul Walker, who died in a car crash in 2013.

"I could never stand on this stage and talk about 'Fast and Furious' without giving love to my brother Pablo, our brother Pablo," he said of Walker. "We hope you're proud."

The awards show was also packed full of movie sneak peeks, including the final "Wonder Woman" trailer, a clip from Stephen King's "It," and a clip from "Spider-Man: Homecoming."
