Stranger Things wins big at MTV Movie & TV Awards


Stranger Things emerged from the MTV Movie and TV Awards as a major fan favorite in television.

Stranger Things cleaned up Saturday night as the nostalgic horror adventure series won in three of the six categories for which it had been nominated, including Best Show, Best Performance in a Show, and Most Frightened Performance.

The MTV Movie and TV Awards, which were held Saturday night and hosted by Tiffany Haddish,  had Stranger Things competing against shows like Game of Thrones, Riverdale, 13 Reasons Why, and Grown-ish for Best Show.

Millie Bobby Brown unsurprisingly won for Best Performance, winning out against Maisie Williams from Game of Thrones and Katherine Langford from 13 Reasons Why, among others. Noah Schnapp won for Most Frightened Performance against the likes of Emily Blunt in A Quiet Place and Sophia Lillis in IT.

Stranger Things, unfortunately, lost out on its other three nominations. Best On-Screen Team Award went to IT  (an ensemble that coincidentally includes Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard), Brown and Wolfhard’s Best Kiss lost out to Nick Robinson and Keiynan Lonsdale from Love, Simon, and Scene Stealer went to Madeline Petsch from Riverdale over Dacre Montgomery.

While the first season of Stranger Things was a fan favorite phenomenon, it seems that season two has only increased the love. Season two gave us more things to love about the community of Hawkins, Indiana — including a reformed Steve Harrington and the Hopper-Eleven father/daughter dynamic.

Season three promises to give a bigger role to Lucas’ sister Erica (Priah Ferguson) and new characters played by Maya Thurman-Hawke, Cary Elwes, and Jake Busey.

If you thought there were some dangling plot points in season two, you can also expect those to be fleshed out in season three, including Eleven’s “sister” Kali and perhaps some more numbers turning up.
