Scarlett Johansson will be getting the Generation Award, and her upcoming turn as Natasha Romanov will be getting a spotlight as well. Marvel also might be trotting out Tom Hiddleston to promote Loki which is just a few short weeks away. So, get excited for all of that.
Sacha Baron Cohen will also be receiving the Comedic Genius Award from MTV tonight. He’s just the fourth comedian to receive this honor following Melissa McCarthy in 2016, Kevin Hart in 2015, and Will Ferrell’s turn in 2013. MTV called this award one that, “honors an actor who has made incomparable contributions to the world of comedy, providing a major influence through their work and transforming the genre at large.”
