Jennifer Lopez, Riley Keough and Sofia Carson were among the stars who brought high-wattage style to the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards, which took place Sunday night at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. The night was hosted by Vanessa Hudgens, who wore a parade of looks including a stunning blue dress from Vera Wang Haute on the red carpet.
Spider-Man: No Way Home took home the golden popcorn trophy for best movie, while the event’s 26 gender-neutral categories included House of Gucci‘s Lady Gaga, Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s Tom Holland (the winner) and Dune‘s Timothee Chalamet up against each other for best performance in a movie. Scarlett Johansson won for best hero for Black Widow. Among the television categories, Euphoria was the night’s winner for best show, with Zendaya accepting her trophy remotely for best performance in a show. Jennifer Lopez attended the event to accept the night’s Generation Award and was surprised to learn she also won the award for best song, from 2022’s Marry Me.
Fans cast their votes online for these and a variety of non-traditional categories including best kiss, while new categories this year included best song and best music documentary.
