Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown denounces internet bullying in MTV Movie & TV Awards speech
Brown couldn't make Saturday's ceremony because of a knee injury, so she used her pre-recorded speech to address her decision to quit Twitter after becoming a homophobic meme. "Since I know there are many young people watching this—and even for the adults—they could probably use the reminder that I was taught. If you don’t have anything nice to say, just don’t say it," she said. There should be no space in this world for bullying, and I’m not going to tolerate it, and neither should any of you. If you need a reminder of how worthy you are and to rise above the hate, message me on Instagram.”

MTV Movie & TV Awards was moved to mid-June to take advantage of Emmy season, when celebrities are easily available
“We came up with the pre-nomination Emmy window,” said MTV general manager Amy Doyle, executive producer of tonight's Tiffany Haddish-hosted awards show, which was pre-taped on Saturday. “We’re sort of assuming that celebrities will want to be seen during that time. They’ll want to be high-profile and top of mind as well as the TV production companies and movie studios.”

Isn't it weird that MTV Movie & TV Awards nominated 13-year-old characters for "Best Kiss"?
Stranger Things stars Finn Wolfhard and Millie Bobby Brown are competing in the "Best Kiss" category with older character kisses like on Love, Simon, Jane the Virgin and Ready Player One. "While the kiss definitely made for a great end to the series, is it appropriate to give them an award for it?" asks Kathryn Lindsay. "I don't know, it just feels weird given that their characters are 13 years old. Is it not a little odd to be cheering for that kiss alongside full-on make-out scenes? Plus, while their inclusion is a nod to the continued popularity of the show, it takes up space from the many other deserving kisses that dominated movies and TV this year."
