Members of the Tribe were among the winners and presenters at the MTV Movie and TV Awards, which took place on June 15 at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica and aired on MTV two days later on June 17.

Gal Gadot was the event’s first presenter, handing out the award for most frightened performance to Sandra Bullock for “Bird Box.”

Dan Levy won the best comedic performance award for his role in “Schitt’s Creek” and gave thanks to MTV, noting he once worked there (actually, for its Canadian counterpart) and the cast, singling out his father and co-star Eugene Levy. He shared his takeaway from his “Schitt’s Creek” experience. “Kindness always wins. Love is best served unconditionally,” he said. “And wearing sweaters in the dead of summer is a very, very bad idea.”

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the subject of the acclaimed documentary “RBG,” was named the recipient of the best real-life hero award. She did not attend the event.
