1. Last night at the MTV Movie Awards, Chris Pratt may have had us all swooning with his acceptance speech, but our own comedy hero Melissa McCarthy was awarded the Comedic Genius Award, and, after crowd surfing her way to the stage to receive the award (ugh she’s perfect!), she paid the most touching tribute to her mom. “And to my mom, Sandy Lynn McCarthy, who taught me not to fear being the butt of the joke, taught me not to worry about being likeable and perfect and to lovingly go for the kill.” Sandy, you sound pretty badass too.

2. Maisie Williams’ Game of Thrones nail art is the perfect way to show your inner fan girl. GoT is back SO SOON, and this is the only acceptable way to do your nails until then. It just so happened that her nails matched her premiere outfit, too. Or is it the other way around? (via @maisie_williams)
3. Gigi Hadid’s sweet words about bf Zayn Malik put them on a whole other #couplegoals level. Never mind their otherworldly beauty that, when combined, could surely power an entire universe. Talking to E! News on the MTV Movie Awards red carpet last night, Gigi said she wishes the two could always work together. “You know, I wish he could be on set with me every day. It doesn’t feel like work when he’s there, so it was really, really fun. We had the best time, and it was definitely an adventure to go where we shot it.” Ughhh! (Photo via Frederick M. Brown/Getty)
4. The adult coloring book boom is causing a global colored pencil and marker shortage. According to The Independent, the surge in the zen trend of staying in the lines has the world’s biggest pencil manufacturer, Faber-Castell, staffing extra shifts in its factory to keep up with demand. There have also been noted struggles to keep up with demand in Brazil and Europe. With the intricate designs and need for tons of colors in many adult coloring books, no wonder!

5. This poor dog had its treat sniped by a sneaky cat. This dog’s patience and this cat’s tenacity are exactly what we need to keep in mind as we start another week. Happy Monday!
6. Quote of the day: “The story of Fury Road is in part a story of the power of women and the power to create our own destinies. On behalf of all the Furiosas out there: You are the true warriors.” — Charlize Theron accepts her MTV Movie Award for Best Female Performance for Mad Max: Fury Road
