“This is for those that feel like the others, the misfits.”
Ashton Sanders and Jharrel Jerome won the award for “Best Kiss” at the MTV Movie & TV Awards on Sunday night for their romantic beachside moment in the Oscar-winning Moonlight.
“This award is bigger than Jharrel and I,” Sanders said during his acceptance speech. “This represents more than a kiss. This is for those that feel like the others, the misfits. This represents us.”
The guys beat out La La Land‘s Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling and Beauty and the Beast‘s Emma Watson and Dan Stevens for the honor of best smooch.
