'Beauty and the Beast' and 'Stranger Things' were two of the big winners Sunday night.

The newly rebranded MTV Movie & TV Awards were handed out Sunday night.

Beauty and the Beast won best movie, while star Emma Watson also took home the (newly non-gendered) award for best actor in a movie.

Meanwhile, Stranger Things won the inaugural award for show of the year, while star Millie Bobby Brown was named best actor in a show.

Other winners were stars from Hidden Figures, Moonlight and Logan, along with Trevor Noah and RuPaul.

Heading into the show, Jordan Peele's racially themed horror film Get Out led all nominees with a total of six, followed by Beauty and the Beast with five nominations. On the TV side, Stranger Things led with four noms including show of the year.

The fan-voted awards show also added several new categories this year — including best host, best reality competition, tearjerker, next generation, trending, best musical moment and best American story, which showcases America at its best, open and diverse — and combined the best actor and actress categories into one.

Adam DeVine hosted the MTV Movie & TV Awards live from Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium. Noah Cyrus and Big Sean performed, while The Fast and Furious movie series received the MTV Generation Award, marking the first time that a film franchise was honored instead of an individual actor. J Balvin, Pitbull and Camila Cabello performed their Fate of the Furious soundtrack single "Hey Ma," for the first time on TV as part of the celebration of Generation Award, which Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Jordana Brewster were on hand to accept.
