The newly revamped MTV Movie & TV Awards are airing for the first time ever Sunday night, hosted by “Pitch Perfect” and “Workaholics” star Adam Devine.

For the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards — known previously as the MTV Movie Awards from 1992-2016 — the network is honoring fan-favorites in both film and television. The “Fast & Furious” franchise had already been announced as this year’s Generation Award recipient, and Vin Diesel is accepting the trophy on behalf of all eight films’ casts. Co-stars Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, and Jordana Brewster will be by his side.

This was also the first incarnation of the event to not differentiate between actors based on gender. Instead, female, male, and gender non-binary actors are all competing for the top acting award.
