Jennifer Lopez, Jack Black star at MTV Movie and TV Awards

Jennifer Lopez and Jack Black were given special honours at the 2022 MTV Movie and TV Awards.

High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens, this year’s ceremony took place at the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, California.

Lopez was given the generation award and Black was honoured with the accolade for comedic genius.

The actress and singer read out “a different kind of list” of thank yous including “disappointment and failure” as she accepted her award.

“You’re only as good as the people you work with, and if you’re lucky they make you better. And I have been very lucky in that regard,” she said, becoming visibly emotional.

“Thank all those people who give me this life, who broke my heart… thank you to disappointment and failure… and my children for teaching me to love.”

She added: “I want to thank all the people who told me, to my face or when I wasn’t in the room, that I couldn’t do this.

“I really don’t think I could have done this without you.”

Black bounded onstage dressed as a panda to accept his prize.

The actor and comedian performed a forward roll and danced around the stage as a pyrotechnic display blasted.

“Comedy genius are you kidding, for what?” he said, accepting the award from actress Awkwafina.

“It’s ridiculous, I don’t deserve it but I will take it. Thank you, MTV.”

He added: “This is for all the school of rockers and all the Tenacious D disciples.”

Spider-Man: No Way Home was named as best movie, with star Tom Holland being awarded the prize for best performance in a movie.

Euphoria was announced as best show, and Zendaya was awarded the prize for best performance in a show.
