MTV Movie & TV Awards 2018 Winners: Riverdale, Stranger Things and More

MTV Movie & TV Awards 2018

From “Barry Allen vs. Daenerys Targaryen” to “Hannah Baker vs. Eleven,” the match-ups at the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards inspired countless dream crossover events.

Hosted by Tiffany Haddish (TBS’ The Last O.G.), Monday’s pre-taped ceremony honored the hottest shows and stars on television — even pitting a few of them against more formidable foes from the big screen.

Going into Monday’s broadcast, Netflix’s Stranger Things led with seven nominations, followed by The CW’s Riverdale with four, HBO’s Game of Thrones with three and Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why with two. But which show would leave Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar with the most buckets of golden popcorn?
