The MTV Movie and TV Awards are held every year to reward the best actors and film and television series of the year. This year, 2022, some real gems from the world of cinema have won the awards.
Among the award winners, Spider-Man: No Way Home and Euphoria were placed as the best film and series of 2022. In this line it is worth noting that Tom Holland took the award for Best Performer in a Motion Picture and Zendaya (who, let’s remember, appears in both award-winning productions) took the award for Best Performer in a Series.
The gala hosted by Vanessa Hudgens, who despite the years many will still see her as Gabriela from High School Musical, had two significant moments for the seventh art industry. Jennifer Lopez won the Generation Award, an honorary award designed to recognize and celebrate the contribution of an artist to the world of cinema throughout his or her career. The other significant moment was Jack Black, who won the Comedic Genius Award, destined, as it could not be otherwise, to the most outstanding actors in the world of comedy.
The MTV Movie and TV Awards are awarded through public voting, which is done online and is a clear reflection of both public opinion and the influence of social networks in our society today. A glance at Twitter is enough to know who the winners were going to be before they were awarded. It is in this sense that Zendaya is one of the most remarkable young stars of the moment, as her start as a Disney star is still present in the memory of many of her fans.
The MTV network has been for many years the reference par excellence of youth entertainment, so this gala is part of the hallmark of the network itself, something they have recovered on this occasion since several years ago that this ceremony was not held live.
