What You Didn’t See at the MTV Movie & TV Awards: From Backstage Snacks to Zac Efron Holding a Baby

Posted on

If you’re sure you caught all the best moments at the MTV Movie & TV Awards on Sunday night, you need to think again.

Some of the can’t-miss-’em moments happened not on the live telecast, but behind the scenes. Not to worry: We’re chronicling these worth-a-second-glance moments here, from the meet-and-greets we’ve been long waiting for to the backstage snacks captured on Instagram.

LOS ANGELES, CA - MAY 07: (L-R) Actors Emma Watson, Hugh Jackman, and Millie Bobby Brown attend the 2017 MTV Movie And TV Awards at The Shrine Auditorium on May 7, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Kevin Mazur/WireImage)

1. Emma Watson met Millie Bobby Brown.
These two stars have a lot in common: they’re both British, skyrocketed to fame at a young age and are outspoken about social issues. So it was only a matter of time before Brown and Watson met, bonded and became BFFs (as Hugh Jackman looked on). Judging by the expressions on their faces, the actresses were just as excited about this meeting as the rest of us.

2. Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart were BFF goals.
Snoop and Stewart are the celebrity friendship we never knew we needed, but now that we have it, could never live without. The pals and co-hosts of Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party were giving us all the friendship feels last night, posing for sweet photos together on the carpet.

3. It hailed on the red carpet.
Extra props to Snoop and Stewart, as well as everyone else who walked the carpet on Sunday, because they managed to look adorable/fierce/chic even as it was hailing outside. Yes, hail. In Los Angeles. In May.

4. That epic Beauty and the Beast-inspired opening number launched a meme.
Looking for a Belle? Apparently Steinfeld is always prepared with a Beauty and the Beast-ready dress when you need her.

5. Zac Efron held DJ Khaled’s baby.
DJ Khaled’s son, Asahd Khaled, is always living his best life. He has more than 500,000 followers on Instagram, he got to attend the MTV Movie & TV Awards and he even had a few minutes in the arms of Zac Efron. Oh Asahd, if only you knew how lucky you are (though Efron himself is pretty lucky, too).

6. The 13 Reasons Why cast hung out with Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn.
Also, Cara Delevingne was there, sans hair.

7. Tyrese got his snack on.
How does Tyrese cure his awards show jitters? A Snickers, naturally. Nothing like a sugar high to get you pumped up.

8. The Baywatch cast was super cute.
As if we weren’t excited enough for the upcoming big-screen Baywatch film, we sure are after last night: co-stars Zac Efron and Alexandra Daddario snapped a too-cute Instagram of him planting a kiss on her cheek.
