Hosted by Dwayne Johnson

Alright movie fanatics, like a young Kevin Hart and some cake, another Movie Awards is officially under our belt. But at least we've got some incredible moments to hold us over until next year, like a possible Samoan Superman vs. the Dark Chocolate Night flick in the making. For realzies though, the 2016 MTV Movie Awards would have been nothing without our very own odd-couple, Kevin Hart and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. From busting onto the stage on a war rig straight from Fury Road, to reminding us all where we were when Leo got down and dirty with a bear, Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson were two hosts for the ages.

Of course, the censor-stimulating debauchery didn't stop there. The high wattage of A-list celebs was so bright, we almost needed shades as 'Mad Max: Fury Road's own Charlize Theron accepted the award for Best Female Performance, and hunky Captain America himself, Chris Evans, took to the stage to introduce an action-packed clip from his latest flick, 'Captain America: Civil War.' Funny man turned heartthrob/hero Chris Pratt earned the Golden Popcorn for Best Action Performance just before the exceptionally swole Zac Efron apologized to a newly jacked Seth Rogen's not-so-bulgey bulge. Ryan Reynolds got down with a few twerking Deadpools and Salt-N-Pepa when winning the award for Best Comedic performance, while Melissa McCarthy crowdsurfed her way to the stage to become the first woman ever to win the Comedic Genius Award. And then there was Will Smith, whose outstanding body of work earned him the highly coveted Generation Award.

But between all the movie madness, we also got to see some stellar musical performances hit the Movie Awards' stage. Halsey kicked off the night's tunes with a haunting performance of her latest track, "Castle" from 'The Huntsman: Winter's War,' and Ariana Grande brought down the house with a soulful rendition of her latest hit, "Dangerous Woman." The Lonely Island even stopped by to pay tribute to Will Smith, performing some of his most memorable hits like, "Parents Just Don't Understand" and "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It."

Yes, it was quite the night of cinematic sizzle.
