Amy Schumer was a bold choice to host the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, and she didn’t disappoint: the Inside Amy Schumer comedian filled the night with edgy jokes and sketches that pushed the boundaries on female sexuality, racism, cancer and more.

In a sketch where Schumer pretended to audition for Selma, she confused Selma, Ala. with Salma Hayek and did an impression of the Latina actress. The script was touchy—“You think that I can’t play a strong ‘Latinra’ just because I’m a beautiful whitekin-la,” she says in a put-on accent—but she did warn viewers before the show saying: “I know people are going to be mad.”

Another sketch about Fifty Shades of Grey pushed boundaries with not-so-subtle sexual innuendos showing women leaving the theater with baseball bats.

Here are some of her most outrageous jokes of the night:

After a gag that left Jimmy Kimmel pierced by an arrow: “I do want to apologize to Jimmy Kimmel, my lower back tattoo is usually the target.”

“Half of you don’t know who I am, and half of you think I’m Meghan Trainor.”

On The Fault in Our Stars: “That was such a great movie, but I think they should have gone with the original title, “Cancer Schmancer.”

On Furious 7: “[That’s] what they’re calling the people who saw Jupiter Ascending.”

“Hillary Clinton finally announced she’s taking Zayn’s spot in One Direction.”

“If you feel like you’re hot wherever you live, stay there, okay? Don’t move [to LA].”

“I have two superpowers: one, I have no gag reflex, and two, I can fly.”

Here’s hoping in a few years’ time, Schumer will be polished and mainstream enough to get an even bigger hosting gig.
