Moonlight’s Ashton Sanders & Jharrel Jerome Win BEST KISS At The MTV Movie & TV Awards 2017
WE"RE NOT CRYNG YOU"RE CRYING.
Ashton Sanders and Jharrel Jerome just won the iconic Best Kiss award at the MTV Movie And TV Awards in LA!
The actors, who star in the Best Picture Oscar-winning Moonlight, received the award for their kiss as teens Chiron and Kevin in the Barry Jenkins-directed coming of age film.
The movie tells the story of Chiron as he grows up through three stages of life, each played by different actors, as he finds himself and his sexuality and identity against a less-than-accepting Miami backdrop.
The much-loved movie broke boundaries this year for being the first LGBT film and first film with an all-black cast to ever win the coveted Best Picture Academy Award.
In their heartfelt winning speech, Ashton Sanders, who plays Chrion, said: “This award is bigger than Jharrel and I, this repesents more than a kiss… This respresents the kids who feel like others, the misfits.”
WE’RE NOT CRYING, YOU’RE CRYING.
- The 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards airs in the UK on 8th May at 8pm – only on MTV!
