What are the MTV Awards?

This year’s ceremony was held on Sunday, June 5th at the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, California and was hosted by High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens.
It featured DJ music by rapper Snoop Dogg and performances by Diplo and Swae Lee, who had teamed up for a musical tribute to Elvis Presley.
What awards have Jennifer Lopez and Jack Black won?
Lopez received the Generation Award and Black was honored with the Comedic Genius award.
Actress and singer Lopez read “a different kind of thank you” upon accepting her award, including “disappointment and failure.”
“You’re only as good as the people you work with, and if you’re lucky, they make you better. And I’ve been very lucky in that regard,” she said, getting visibly emotional.
“Thank you to all the people who gave me this life, who broke my heart … thank you for the disappointment and failure … and my children for teaching me to love.”
She added: “I want to thank all the people who said to my face or if I wasn’t in the room that I couldn’t do that. I really don’t think I could have done it without you.”
Black was dressed as a panda when he took the stage to collect his award.
The actor and comedian performed a forward roll and danced around the stage before speaking.
He said: “Comedy genius are you kidding what for? It’s ridiculous, I don’t deserve it, but I’ll take it. Thank you MTV.”
