"Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta" won a much-coveted award at this year's MTV Movie & TV Awards, and some of their competitors are not happy.
Spice, Karlie Redd, Bambi, and Scrappy happily took the MTV Movie & TV Awards stage after being crowned Reality Royalty against "The Bachelor," "Jersey Shore," "Vanderpump Rules," and "The Challenge."
Competitors throwing shade
Even the cast of the show themselves were shocked that they won the award, so what more the people off the stage? Some of those who attended the awards night were visibly shocked and even appalled that "LHHATL" took home the golden popcorn.
In fact, even their competitors, especially those from the cast of "Jersey Shore," were quite surprised that they didn't win it, with one of them yelling "What the [expletive]?!"

The "Best Part" of the night
While the Reality Royalty award definitely caused a stir, Dwyane Johnson's speech left everyone in a different type of shock. The audience was left in awe after sharing a lengthy and heartfelt speech at the awards show.
That day, Johnson won the "Generation Award," and spoke about being true to yourself.
According to Johnson, who is now one of Hollywood's top-paid actors, the first time he ventured into the film industry, he was miserable.
The "Jumanji" actor shared that because of his weight, people didn't know what to do with him.
“I was told at that time; you’ve gotta be a certain way. You’ve gotta drop some weight; you’ve gotta be somebody different, you’ve gotta stop working out, stop doing the things that I love, you’ve gotta stop calling yourself ‘The Rock.’”

I have something very cool planned for my #MTVAwards ICON GENERATION AWARD. It’s a privilege to be given this iconic award and its my honor to showcase and merge both my Samoan & Black cultures that I’m forever proud to be. We bring it. Tune in tomorrow (Mon) night on @MTV. #MTVAwards #IconGenerationAward #ThisIsMe
However, Johnson was determined to prove everyone wrong, and that he didn't need to change or lose weight to fit into what Hollywood wants him to be.
“I was miserable doing that, so I made a choice. The choice was I wasn’t gonna conform to Hollywood, Hollywood was gonna conform to me.”
