After an extremely eventful night filled with Vin Diesels’s Paul Walker tribute, Robert Downey Jr.s’ Generation Award acceptance speech, and more, the biggest moment of the 2015 MTV Movie Awards came when Dwayne Johnson—aka The Rock—presented the Movie of the Year award to the cast of The Fault in Our Stars. The heart wrenching film, starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, beat out American Sniper, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, Guardians of the Galaxy, Gone Girl, Boyhood, Whiplash, and Selma.

It was a big night for The Fault in Our Stars, which is based on John Green’s young-adult novel, as Woodley took home two other popcorn awards for the film: one for Best Female Performance and the other for Best Kiss, which she shared with Ansel Elgort who was noticeably absent from the ceremony. But Elgort took to Twitter to let his fans know he was tuned in! The actor tweeted “Watching the MTV movie awards from providence because I’m filming tomorrow at 6am. Wish I could be there :( Rooting for u shai!! #tfios.”

Congrats to the cast!

What Costumes Won Big for Film and Television This Year? Inside the Costume Designers Guild Awards

One of the reasons we love our favorite films and television shows is the costuming—and the top designers were honored at the 16th annual Costume Designers Guild Awards over the weekend. Held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, California, stars like Kerry Washington, Tony Goldwyn, Olivia Munn, Mindy Kaling, and Kiernan Shipka came out to celebrate the event, which was hosted by Scandal‘s Joshua Malina. The Guild handed out competitive awards for costume design excellence in seven categories for film, television, and commercial work, with the costumers behind Blue Jasmine, 12 Years a Slave, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, House of Cards, Downton Abbey, and Behind the Candelabra all taking home top honors.

This year, five-time Academy Award nominee Amy Adams was honored with the Lacoste Spotlight Award, which honors an actor whose talent and career personifies an enduring commitment to excellence, including a special awareness of the role and importance of costume design. ”I just had such an amazing privilege working with so many extraordinary costume designers and so many wonderful costume departments, and I’ve learned so much,” Adams says. ”[Costume designers] have taught me that clothing is a language, but that costume is an art… I am so, so lucky to work with amazing artists.”

Additionally, writer, producer, and director Judd Apatow was recognized with the Distinguished Collaborator Award for his support of costume design and creative partnerships with costume designers. “I feel like this is really more for all the costume designers that I’ve worked with over the years,” Apatow tells InStyle. “They really work with us to create these characters.” Congratulations to all the night’s big winners!

From Dame to Hasty Pudding’s Women of the Year, Helen Mirren Celebrates (and Twerks) At Harvard University

Say hello to Harvard University’s 2014 Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year, Dame Helen Mirren! The actress was honored with the award by the university’s theatrical society based on her contributions to the arts and celebrated with a day fit for a queen (after all, she was The Queen).

The day began with a parade along the streets of Cambridge, Massachusetts, where the 68-year-old shared a convertible with Hasty Pudding members dressed in drag, followed by a celebratory roast and award presentation where she even showed off her twerking skills. “I was made a Dame of the British Empire, I had to go to Buckingham Palace and I was honored by—actually not her Royal Highness—but by Prince Charles, but that didn’t come anywhere close to this,” Mirren laughed as she accepted her award. “This is the greatest honor, so thank you very, very much.”

Mirren joins an array of Hollywood women who were also honored with the Hasty Pudding Women of the Year award—including Julia Roberts, Drew Barrymore, Sandra Bullock, Halle Berry, Claire Danes, and more. Mirren’s pudding pot trophy will fit nicely in her awards case, right next to her Oscar, don’t you think so?
