With Award season comes many stand-out, dramatic moments—from female directors dominating at the Oscars 2021, to Little Mix making history at the BRIT Awards. The MTV Movie Awards, like any good awards show, was no different—although none of us saw this coming.

Fans have been left very divided by a live, on-stage kiss between Addison Rae and her ‘He’s all that’ co-star, Tanner Buchanan, at the MTV Movie Awards.

They took to the stage to present the ‘Best Kiss Award’ but before announcing the winner the two went into a very intense make-out session, live on TV.
