Jennifer Lopez made an emotional speech about how believers and skeptics contributed to her success, as she accepted a career achievement honour at the MTV Movie & TV Awards on Sunday.

“I want to 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,” said Lopez, who nabbed this year’s Generation Award. She also took home Best Song — a new category — for the track On My Way from the Marry Me soundtrack.

MTV’s youth-focused celebration of film and TV offered a lighter, breezier awards show, with 26 categories in gender-neutral categories such as Best Villain and Best Kiss. Hosted by Vanessa Hudgens, the ceremony returned to a live format after being pre-recorded for several years.

Lopez shed tears as she thanked fans, her long-time manager and children for “teaching me to love”, bringing the audience to their feet at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

“I want to thank the people who gave me this life,” said Lopez, 52, later adding: “You’re only as good as the people who you work with. But if you’re lucky, they make you better. I’ve been very lucky in that regard.”

Lopez’s breakthrough came as a dancer on the 1990s sketch comedy series In Living Color. She pursued an acting career and landed a leading role in Selena in 1997. She would go on to appear in such films including Anaconda, Out of Sight, The Wedding Planner, Hustlers and her latest, Marry Me.

As a singer, Lopez has earned success on the pop and Latin charts with several hit songs and albums. She released her multi-hit debut On the 6 in 1999 and topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart with songs such as If You Had My Love, All I Have and the remixes of I’m Real and Ain’t It Funny.

And in 2020, Lopez performed during the Super Bowl Halftime Show alongside Shakira.

Big winners on the night

Spider-Man: No Way Home was leading with seven nominations. It took home Best Movie, and the film’s star Tom Holland won Best Performance in a Movie. With almost $1.9 billion earned at the box office, it was the biggest film of the year and a fan favourite, but was largely overlooked by the major awards shows.

Zendaya won for Best Performance in a Show for her role in Euphoria, which came away with Best Show. The HBO series also won new category, Here for the Hookup.

Early in the broadcast, singer Olivia Rodrigo, 19, won Best Music Documentary for her project Olivia Rodrigo: Driving Home 2 U. Rodrigo, who won three Grammys this year, including Best New Artist, spoke about the importance of creating the film, which involves a road trip, live performances and reflections on her debut album Sour.

“I made Driving Home 2 U for the fans, especially those who couldn’t come to see me on tour,” Rodrigo said.

'Comedic genius. C'mon are you kidding?'

Jack Black also received a career achievement award, Comedic Genius. He ran onstage and seemed almost out of breath before giving his acceptance speech.

“I need a little blast of oxygen,” he said before rattling off several films he starred in, such as School of Rock and Jumanji.

“Comedic genius. C’mon are you kidding? For what?” Black said. “I don’t deserve this, but I’ll take it.”

The ceremony kicked off with Loki star Sophia Di Martino winning Breakthrough Performance for her role as Sylvie on the Disney+ television series. After the actor claimed her trophy, she talked about being nine months pregnant when she was offered the role, and her baby being only three months old when she started filming.

“It’s been quite the journey, so this really means a lot to me,” she said. “Thank you to the audience. It’s all for you. Thank you for letting Sylvie into your imaginations.”

Diplo and Swae Lee performed Tupelo Shuffle from the coming Elvis biopic from director Baz Luhrmann.
