Empowerment rules at MTV awards, with win for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Empowerment rules at MTV awards, with win for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg”

Box office-busting Avengers: Endgame dominated the MTV Movie and TV Awards Monday, as Captain Marvel star Brie Larson led tributes to real-life heroines by ceding the spotlight to her stunt doubles.

The Rock shared an inspiring speech full of lessons about accepting himself and the power of being oneself, noting that after being told to lose weight, stop working out, and essentially stop being everything we love about him, before eventually deciding: "Hollywood was gonna conform to me". "I made a choice that I wasn't going to conform to Hollywood; Hollywood was going to conform to me". "So when Bird Box crossed my path, I knew this was a story I needed to make because it was about family".

The MTV Movie and TV awards usually focus on crowd-pleasers and is an irreverent antidote to the more serious winter Hollywood awards season.

As it's from one of the greatest films of the '90s (fight me), and one of the most recognisable final performance scenes of the time, fans lost their damn minds over the performance on Twitter. I'm proudly half-black and half-Samoan and I wanted to bring those cultures here, up here for the world to see. That sometimes you're born into a family, sometimes you need to go find it, sometimes it finds you. Below, see the makeup and hair picks from tonight's lineup - you'll want to try all of them ASAP.

"And I know, like in the movie, sometimes it looks like mommy is unraveling but that is probably because you have pushed her to that place", Sandra joked, before getting serious about the love she has for her two children.

The mom of two went on to say that she told her kids that they are her "first thought in the morning" and her "last thought at night". I was put on this earth to protect you! Those are the films you should be making! "Superheroes are the ones doing the important work right now, '" Bullock hilariously revealed about her son's reaction before teasing: "I grounded him". "Thank you", she concluded to a roaring audience.
