In keeping with the times, the MTV Movie and TV Awards did something different this year. They honoured the Greatest of All Time (GOAT) in the film and TV industry from the 1980s until now.

Winners were announced at a socially distanced ceremony hosted by Vanessa Hudgens. According to Deadline, no nominees were announced before the ceremony.

The categories included: Scream Queen, Legendary Lip Lock, Dance Your Ass Off, Heartbreaking Break-Up, Comedy Giant, Zero to Hero, She-Ro, and Dynamic Duo.

The highlight of the evening was a heart-warming tribute to Chadwick Boseman who died in August after a four-year private battle with cancer. His Avengers co-stars Don Cheadle and Robert Downey Jr. paid tribute to him as he was named GOAT: Hero for the Ages.

One of the most talked-about moments of the show was Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair's recreation of their 1999 Cruel Intentions kiss for which they were honoured with GOAT: Legendary Lip Lock.

The pair accepted the award via video message, just when they were about to lock lips, they were interrupted by a glass wall.
