Surviving R. Kelly Acceptance Speech MTV Movie and TV Awards

Amid all the amazing performances and inspiring speeches at the MTV Movie & TV Awards on Monday night, one particular win gave us the most poignant speech of the entire award show.

Surviving R. Kelly, the Lifetime docuseries that shook the musical world by exposing the multiple sexual abuse allegations against Kelly, took home the Golden Popcorn for best documentary and beat out several other documentaries — including At the Heart of Gold: Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal, RBJ, Minding the Gap, and McQueen. Brie Miranda Bryant (senior vice president of unscripted development and programming for Lifetime) accepted the award surrounded by several of Kelly's survivors and moved the audience to tears with an incredibly powerful speech.

"This isn't just a trophy to us. It speaks to the cultural impact that it generated from this documentary," Bryant said. "Survivors walked through the fire and stood again to tell the story . . . journalists, activists, bloggers, tweeters who continued to say the name of these survivors, these parents, helped to tell this story . . . thank you, especially to those individuals who never wavered despite how daunting this journey has been."

Watch Bryant's full speech ahead.
