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

Johnny Bananas is the new Kanye West

The MTV Generation Award is given to anyone who "has shown us a variety of impressive roles, a personal and professional flair, and of course, an awesome level of talent". When I first got to Hollywood, Hollywood they didn't know what the hell to do with me. I was half black, half Samoan, 6 foot 4, 275 pound pro wrestler.

If you didn't get a chance to tune into the MTV Movie & TV Awards last night, we've got you covered. For years I bought into it because you think, "Oh, that's what I'm supposed to do" and I was miserable. "So, Hollywood conformed to me, and here I am with all of you getting the Generation Award..." It's important that you are your most authentic self.

Inclusivity and celebration were the themes of the night.

Elisabeth Moss, star of "The Handmaid's Tale", took the award for best performance in a TV show, a category that was entirely made up of women. The Oscar victor said she was happy her son could see her accept her award in a room with "real-life superheroes" like Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel. Levi urged viewers to nurture the kid in themselves and follow their dreams into adulthood.

Because Mondays are apparently the flawless night for awards shows, MTV is airing its annual Movie & TV Awards tonight, honoring the best and brightest on the big and small screens and asking that age-old question: Can Riverdale compete in the same weight class as Game of Thrones? .

Brie Larson's "Captain Marvel" triumphed in the best fight category, while MTV's popular best kiss award went to newcomers Noah Centineo and Lana Condor from the Asian-led teen movie "To All the Boys I've Loved Before".

Daniel Levy shared a similar sentiment after winning the best comedic performance award for Schitt's Creek.

Sandra Bullock touched the audience during her speech for most frightened performance for Bird Box.

"I'm sure he will notice that they are women, just like his mama", she said.
