Shailene Woodley won big at the MTV Movie Awards, taking home the golden popcorn for Best Female Performance and MTV Trailblazer.

Shailene Woodley Brings John Green To Tears

Amy Schumer hosted the MTV Movie Awards for the first time, kicking off the show with a funny look at some of the year’s most popular films, including the ever popular The Fault In Our Stars, for which Woodley took home her awards.

In addition to her Best Female Performance award, Woodley’s performance in The Fault in Our Stars (TFIOS) also helped the film pick up Best Kiss. Unfortunately for fans, Woodley’s TFIOS co-star, Ansel Elgort couldn’t make it to the awards, but he did live tweet the event, and tried to share in the celebration.

Woodley was, without a doubt, one of the highlights of the night, bringing TFIOS author John Green (and many viewers at home) to tears while accepting the Golden Popcorn for Best Female Performance – the very first award of the night. “I feel like this award belongs to John Green…because he gave this world a beautiful masterpiece, a gift in the book The Fault In Our Stars. It changed my life when I read it, and being a part of this film dramatically influenced who I am today. His words will transcend time because they transcent any age. There is not one single demographic that won’t be affected by the wisdom and the compassion and the beauty and he laces into every single thing that he does in his life…So, John Green, beyond The Fault In Our Stars, I just want to thank you for being the human that you are. And for every single day, living a life with integrity and again, compassion, on your sleeve. Because you change the lives of millions of people around the world. You changed mine. So, thank you so much,” Woodley said.


Later in the night, Woodley received the MTV Trailblazer Award, presented to her by her frequent co-star, Miles Teller. And, finally, Woodley took the stage once again with her TFIOS cast to accept the award for Movie of the Year.

Zac Efron, Dylan O’Brien Win Big

Neighbors was also a popular winner, with Zac Efron taking home two awards: one for Best Duo with Dave Franco and another for Best Shirtless Performance. This is the second year in a row Efron has won the Golden Popcorn for appearing shirtless in a film. In 2014 Efron won the honor for his work in That Awkward Moment. And MTV’s own Teen Wolf star Dylan O’Brien also took home multiple awards, winning Breakthrough Performance, Best Hero and Best Fight for The Maze Runner. Unfortunately, O’Brien couldn’t make it to the awards, but, like Elgort, the young heartthrob took to Twitter to thank the fans that voted for him.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron Cast Appears

Of course, it wouldn’t be the MTV Movie Awards without a few big moments to promote upcoming summer blockbusters. All the Avengers took the stage to present Robert Downey Jr. with the MTV Generation Award. “On behalf of my fellow Avengers, I invite you to dream big, work hard, keep your nose clean, be of service and, yes, because you can, define your generation,” Downey Jr. told the crowd. Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Downey Jr. were also on hand to premiere a new sneak peek at Avengers: Age of Ultron.
