Yesterday's 2016 MTV Movie Awards was just as memorable as the last if not more. Hosted by Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, the show opened with the duo's version of Mad Max: Fury Road. There was a horde of war boys, The Rock brandishing a flaming guitar and Kevin Hart strapped to the front of the truck.

They also transformed into superheroes: Dwayne was a 'Samoan Superman' and Kevin was 'The Dark Chocolate Knight'. Then, Chris Evans went up on stage to introduce a brand new clip for Captain America: Civil War and Halsey blew our minds with her performance of Castle right before Chris Pratt accepted an award for Best Action Performance.

What came next is probably one of the best moments in television history when Dwayne and Kevin performed a rap song called Leo Got Fu**** By A Bear. The song, dedicated to Leo's iconic performance in The Revenant, was inspired by a Disney movie. Straight Outta Compton won Best True Story and Ryan Reynolds accepted his award for Best Comedic Performance after he was welcomed on stage by Salt-N-Pepa and their live performance of Shoop.

Will Smith also had a moment when Lonely Island performed his hit songs. He also won the Generation Award which he called the "old dude award". Daisy Ridley celebrated her birthday in style as she won Best Breakthrough Performance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens while the film nabbed Best Movie of the Year.

Adam Devine and Rebel Wilson won Best Kiss and proved to us exactly why they won it, live on stage. Besides all the lip action and crazy celebrity antics, we got a glimpse of the two new trailers for Fantastic Beasts and Suicide Squad. We've got our calendars marked. Have you?
