“Show that a person of any color can play any role and win any award”, Berry says while introducing Smith.
The award ceremony, with hosts Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart, took place Saturday evening on the Warner Bros. backlot. “When I first heard that MTV wanted to give me the Generation Award, I thought that was code for the “Old Ass Dude Award”, he said as the crowd laughed.
Other winners included Charlize Thereon, for best female performance in “Mad Max”, Chris Pratt for best action performance in “Jurassic World”, “Straight Outta Compton” for best true story, and Amy Poehler for best virtual performance in Pixar’s “Inside Out”.
She continued, “The story of “Fury Road” is in part a story of the power of women and the power to create our own destinies”.
Aside from Best Comedic Performance, Ryan also nabbed the award for Best Fight, for his character’s face-off with Ed Skrein’s Ajax in the movie. Most presenters were principals from upcoming film. Those Deadpools then served as backup dancers for Salt-N-Pepa as they sang “Shoop”.
The awards show taped in Burbank, California, and is airing on MTV on Sunday, April 10, at 8 p.m. ET.
