Oddly enough, the Golden Popcorn trophies have already been claimed, even though the MTV Movie Awards air this evening. Aside from the red carpet looks, which include Ariana Grande serving up major Marilyn Monroe, Cara Delevingne cosplaying as a Tron character, and Kendall Jenner's thigh-high lace-up sandals (which required a team of four to put on), there's the matter of the actual winners.
