Milo Ventimiglia Is MTV Movie & TV Awards' True Star
You don't have to take home the Golden Popcorn to be a winner at the MTV Movie & TV Awards... At least not if you're Milo Ventimiglia. Even though the star of 'This Is Us' was snubbed of a nomination for Best Actor in a Show, the NBC series was still up for quite a few awards.
In addition to the big Best Show nod, Mandy Moore was nominated for Best Actor in A Show, Chrissy Metz was up for the Next Generation award, and the scene in which Ventimiglia's Jack went to karate with young Randall was up for Best Tearjerker. But none of that is what caused Milo to steal the show. He became the star well before he was named the winner for Best Tearjerker.
Milo won the MTV Movie & TV Awards the moment he showed up.
Milo went with a much more clean-cut look than 'This Is Us' fans are used to seeing, but no one seemed to mind. And I can't be the only person who prefers to see the actor without a beard, because it makes him resemble a certain 'Gilmore Girls' character...
Luckily, Milo did more than show up to the awards on Sunday night. He also presented the award for Best Duo, alongside his TV daughter, Chrissy Metz (I don't want to give anything away, but it makes sense if you watch the show, trust me).
Not satisfied with making us all swoon with his look alone, Milo decided to embody his character on stage and referred to Chrissy as "Princess," aka what Jack calls Kate whenever he wants to cheer her up.
Even though they weren't nominated for Best Duo, they made quite the pair on stage. Milo, as we've firmly established, looked amazing, and Chrissy was absolutely stunning in a bright red dress.
Later, Milo took the stage again to accept Best Tearjerker with Lonnie Chavis (who plays young Randall) and somehow, it made him even more lovable.
Honestly, one Golden Popcorn is not enough. Milo deserves all of the awards just for gracing the MTV Movie & TV Awards with his presence.
