The MTV Movie and TV Awards were held on Sunday night (June 5th) at The Barker Hangar in Los Angeles, hosted by High School Musical actress Vanessa Hudgens and with music by DJ Snoopadelic.
Euphoria took home four golden popcorn awards for Best Show, Best Performance in a Show, Best Fight, and Here for the Hookup.
Spider-Man: No Way Home won for Best Movie and Tom Holland and Zendaya accepted the award for Best Movie via satellite. Holland also won Best Performance in a Movie.
The real-life couple, however, did not win Best Kiss. It went to Sean “Poopies” McInerney’s “kiss” with a snake in Jackass Forever instead.

Awkwafina presented Jack Black with this year’s Comedic Genius award, calling him a “facial hair aficionado” and “one of the nicest guys on the planet.” Black said he needed a “blast of oxygen” when he accepted the award. “Comedic Genius, are you kidding? For what?” he said. Answering his own question, he listed his work in Jumanji, School of Rock, Nacho Libre and his “sweet dance moves on TikTok” as reasons for the win.

Jennifer Lopez received the Generation Award after Hudgens introduced a montage of footage from her films over the years. Lopez got emotional in her acceptance speech, paying tribute to the good and the bad in her life. She thanked “all the people who told me to my face and behind my back I couldn’t do this. I really don’t think I could have done this without you,” she said. Lopez finished her speech with a cute shoutout to Ben Affleck. “Ben and everyone at home, wait for me to have dinner – I will be home by 7!”
