    ‘Euphoria’ and ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ win big at 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards

    Both the MTV Movie & TV Awards and the Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted aired this weekend on MTV

    The MTV Movie & TV Awards and Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted aired this Sunday, celebrating the best that Hollywood and reality TV had to offer audiences this year, from the acclaimed second season of “Euphoria” on HBO, to RuPaul’s continued success with the popular reality competition series “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

    The biggest award of the night went to “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” which broke box office records when it debuted in theaters last year. Stars Zendaya and Tom Holland accepted the award with a virtual speech, specifically thanking the fans who helped make the film such a huge success. “Thank you so much, and on behalf of the ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ family, we want to say thank you to all the incredible fans who showed up and supported the film,” Zendaya said.

    She continued, “I know it meant so much to all of you. I know it’s been such an incredible journey for all of us, so thank you for allowing us to bring these characters to life and for all the love that you bring to them, and, yeah, this is very special.”

    Not only did Zendaya win big for the Marvel Cinematic Universe film, her series “Euphoria” also garnered the most awards for a scripted television series, winning best show, best performance in a show (Zendaya), best fight, and “here for the hookup” honors. Best fight specifically went to “Cassie vs. Maddy,” a brawl between the popular characters played by Sydney Sweeney and Alexa Demie respectively, which birthed countless memes while the second season aired.

    The “Unscripted” awards also featured some must-see moments for the biggest shows in the format. Accepting the award for best competition series, drag icon RuPaul, in a virtual speech, took the time to honor the performers who appear on the show. “I wanna thank our queens, who bravely share their stories to help spread love, light and laughter around the world,” RuPaul said. “My queens, this award belongs to you!” Accepting the award in person were season 14 stars, Kornbread, Angeria Paris VanMicheals, Bosco and Kerri Colby.

    Outside of the competitive awards, the shows also featured lifetime achievement awards for Jennifer Lopez (the Generation Award), Jack Black (the Comedic Genius Award) and Bethenny Frankel (the Reality Royalty Award). In her emotional speech, Lopez presented a “different kind” of thank you list: “I wanna thank all the people who gave me this life. I wanna thank the people who gave me joy, and the ones who broke my heart. The ones who were true and the ones who lied to me. I wanna thank true love, and I wanna thank the way that I lied to myself, because that’s how I knew that I had to grow. I wanna thank disappointment and failure for teaching me to be strong, and my children for teaching me to love.”

    She even took the time to thank the people who (to her face and behind her back) told her she would never be a successful actress, before thanking the fans “who saw the movies.”

    “It’s an honor to be able to connect with audiences, to connect with you guys,” she said at the end of her speech. “And because of all of you, I will continue to do justice to that honor as long as I am around. I love you, thank you so much!”
