Los Angeles, California - After a pretty standard awards show on Sunday night, MTV stepped it up a notch with its first ever UNSCRIPTED awards – or as host Nikki Glaser called it, "the Oscars but for stuff we actually watch"!

RuPaul's Drag Race won not only best competition show, but they have also been named the best reality cast and RuPaul was voted best host.

The MTV Movie and TV Awards: UNSCRIPTED rewarded reality TV stars for their hard work in front of the cameras.

The show was hosted by none other than comedian Nikki Glaser and was held live at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles – only one day after the ceremony for scripted movies and TV shows took place.

And RuPaul's Drag Race was a big winner of the night as the series was honored with no less than three awards! They were not only voted best competition show, but can also officially boast the best reality cast and the best host in RuPaul.

Selena Gomez's cooking show Selena + Chef won an award for best new unscripted series and the award for the best talk/topical show went to The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

The South African comedian and host used his acceptance speech to ask everyone to get vaccinated.

"I see you on the other side of the pandemic, people. Get your vaccine. Let's have fun in the summer!"

Bretman Rock was named the breakthrough social star of 2021. Sporting black glitter pants and a fabulous crop-jacket, he talked about how traumatizing it was to have everyone watch him while growing up on the internet. "But it's all worth it," he continued.

The Filipino-American influencer also had a touching message to share: "This award is for all of the Asian-Americans who believes in me, all of the Pacific islanders and most importantly this is for all of the LGBTQ-community."

Last but not least, what would reality TV be without some good beef. And so the golden popcorn for the best fight went to Kourtney and Kim Kardashian for their legendary feuds in Keeping Up With The Kardashians!
