MTV Movie & TV Awards 2022: Awards shows are not only entertaining and fun to watch, but also a great way to recognize and facilitate hard work and talent together. Another big award show just took place, where Euphoria, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and Loki were the top victors at the 2022 MTV Movie and TV Awards, which were held at Barker Hanger in Santa Monica. Vanessa Hudgens hosted the awards presentation.
Euphoria won four accolades, including best show, best performance by Zendaya in a show, and best fight. Spider-Man: No Way Home, the highest-grossing picture of 2021, received two major prizes, including best movie and best performance in a film for lead actor Tom Holland.
Jennifer Lopez and her acceptance speech
Aside from these winners, one such actress who bagged an award for her terrific acting was none other than Hollywood actress Jennifer Lopez. She gave an impassioned statement about how believers and doubters contributed to her success as she won a career achievement award at the MTV Movie & TV Awards on Monday.
“I want to thank the individuals who brought me joy and those who shattered my heart, the ones who were genuine and those who lied to me,” Lopez said after receiving this year’s Generation Award, which recognizes performers whose various contributions have made them household names. She also won the best song, a new category, for “On My Way” from the Marry Me soundtrack.
Lopez cried tears as she thanked fans, her longtime manager, and her children for “teaching me to love,” bringing the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, to its feet.
The actress added, “I want to thank the individuals who gave me this life,” Lopez, 52, said, later adding, “You’re only as good as the people you work with.” But, if you’re lucky, they improve you. In that way, I’ve been extremely fortunate.
A little throwback about Lopez and her achievements
Jennifer Lopez made her debut as a dancer on the 1990s sketch comedy series In Living Color. She pursued an acting career and was roped in as the lead in Selena in 1997. She went on to feature in movies like Anaconda, Out of Sight, The Wedding Planner, Hustlers, and her most recent Marry Me.
Lopez has had many successful singles and albums on the mainstream and Latin charts as a singer. In 1999, she launched her multi-hit debut On The 6 and topped the Billboard Hot 100 list with songs such as “If You Had My Love,” “All I Have,” and remixes of “I’m Real” and “Ain’t It Funny.”
More about the show
The ceremony began with Loki actress Sophia Di Martino receiving a breakthrough performance award for her role as Sylvie in the Disney Plus television series.
After winning her award, the actress discussed how she was nine months pregnant when she was offered the role and her kid was only 3 months old when she started filming.
Spider-Man: No Way Home led the nominations with seven. It won the best film, and its star, Tom Holland, won the best performance in a film. It was the largest picture of the year and a cult hero, earning almost $1.9 billion at the box office, but it was virtually disregarded by the major awards ceremonies.
