On Sunday, Apr. 10 at 8 p.m., the very casual and somewhat explicit, MTV Movie Awards lured in 3.5 million viewers.

The show opened up with hosts Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Kevin Hart by paying tribute to last year’s acclaimed sci-fi movie “Mad Max: Fury Road.”

The show was filled with F-bombs, slight naked-ness and dirty jokes. It’s safe to say that this award show was not suitable for children, and that’s what made it so great.

After their tribute, they went back and forth and made cheesy jokes about each other, including the horrible hashtag, #DickinCake.

One of the tackiest, yet funny parts of the show had to be when Key and Peele put on an invisible cat and glitch act.

Peele spent his time on the stage pretending to hold the title kitten from their upcoming movie “Keanu.”

It started off a little silly, but ended up making the audience bend over from laughter.

The best part of the award show had to be when the hosts performed an entire song about Leonardo DiCaprio and the bear from “The Revenant.”

The duo had backup dancers dressed as bears and they continued to sing, “Leo got F—cked by a bear.”

The entire song just made fun of how Leo’s character got sexually assaulted by a bear. It’s not exactly funny, but the part that made it funny was when the cameras turned to the audience, and members caught on to the lyrics and began to sing along.

Will Smith was given the ‘Generation Award,’ so the show put together a Will Smith medley.

The medley included “Parents Just Don’t Understand,” the theme from “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” “Summertime,” the “Men in Black” theme, and, “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It.”

Seth Rogen walked on stage with fake muscles under his shirt with Zac Efron, who has real muscles under his shirt.

Rogen began to tell Efron that it was his fault that he had to take every substance to become that buff because Efron put a lot of pressure on him. The joke proceeded with Efron apologizing to Rogen as well as Rogen’s testicles.

Things got a little awkward when Efron, Adam DeVine and Anna Kendrick found themselves roped into one of the most messed-up bits of the evening with a series of “date” auditions.

It loosely related to their upcoming movie “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates,” but the “dates” were several (fake) pregnant girls. This was clearly a cruel joke to the show “16 and Pregnant.”

As for the winners, Rebel Wilson and Adam DeVine took home the award for Best Kiss, which was in “Pitch Perfect 2.”

Of course after they accepted the award, they proceeded to make-out until Wilson’s Spanx came out. The Pitch Perfect movie also won for Best On-Screen Duo.

“Deadpool” won for Best Fight, as well as Ryan Reynolds for Best Comedic Performance in “Deadpool.”

Charlize Theron took home the prize for Best Female Performance in “Mad Max: Fury Road.”

Adam Driver won for Best Villain in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Daisy Ridley won for Best Breakthrough Performance in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” and the Star Wars movie won for Best Movie.

Leonardo DiCaprio won Best Male Performance in “The Revenant.”

Best Hero went to Jennifer Lawrence for her performance in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2.”

Melissa McCarthy took home the Comedic Genius Award.

“Jurassic World” won the Best Action Sequence prize.

Amy Poehler won the Best Virtual Performance from animated film, “Inside Out.”

The Best True Story award was given to “Straight Outta Compton,” and the Best Documentary award went to “Amy.”
