Stars such as Scarlett Johansson, Elizabeth Olsen, and Sacha Baron Cohen were honored at the MTV Movie & TV Awards. The awards were presented at a party hosted by comedian Leslie Jones on Sunday evening (local time) in Los Angeles. Cohen received a “Comedic Genius” award for “unparalleled contributions to the world of comics”.
Olsen won the award for her role in “WandaVision” (Disney +) super-comedy. Chadwick Bosman was posthumously honored for his performance in the Netflix movie “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”. At the Oscars, “Black Panther” star Bosman recently lost to Anthony Hopkins.
Johansson has been honored for her past work – and during her acceptance speech she sent via video link from her husband Colin Ghost, a band member on the “Saturday Night Live” drawing program, is covered in mud. At the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, it’s customary for celebrities to be poured slime. In 2018, model and presenter Heidi Klum fell victim to this.
Prizes will be presented in the form of golden colored popcorn cups, and fans can vote for the winners online. MTV Movie & TV Awards are traditionally held after the end of the movie awards season around Golden Globe Awards and Oscars. With categories like “Best Kiss”, villains, heroes, and fight scenes, the younger crowd is targeted.
