It was a good night for LGBTQ content and creators at last night’s truncated MTV Movie & TV Awards.

Due to the current writer’s strike in Hollywood and NYC, the broadcast basically consisted of pre-taped sketches and video acceptance speeches. Drew Barrymore, who was scheduled to host, pulled out in solidarity with the writer’s union.

“The Last of Us” was the big winner of the night, picking up several trophies, including Best Hero for Pedro Pascal and his morally ambiguous antihero Joel, Best Duo for Pascal and Bella Ramsey, and Best Show, beating out the likes of “Wednesday,” “The White Lotus,” “Stranger Things,” and “Yellowjackets.”

Another gay favorite, “Scream VI,” with queer star Jasmin Savoy Brown, won for Best Movie, beating out others like “Avatar: The Way of Water,” “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” and “Nope.”

Other gay winners of the night include “RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars” taking home the trophy for Best Competition Series.
