Stars like Scarlett Johansson, Elizabeth Olsen and Sacha Baron Cohen have been honored at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.
The awards were presented at a gala hosted by comedian Leslie Jones on Sunday evening (local time) in Los Angeles.
Cohen received the "Comedic Genius" award for his "incomparable contributions to the world of comedy."
Olsen received the award for her role in the superhero comedy "WandaVision" (Disney +).
Chadwick Boseman was posthumously recognized for his performance in the Netflix film "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom".
At the Oscars, the "Black Panther" star Boseman had recently lost to Anthony Hopkins.
Johansson was honored for her previous work - and during her video-transmitted acceptance speech from husband Colin Jost, an ensemble member of the sketch show "Saturday Night Live", covered in slime.
At the Kid's Choice Awards of the US children's channel Nickelodeon, it is a tradition for celebrities to be doused with slime.
In 2018, model and presenter Heidi Klum also fell victim to this.
The prizes will be presented in the form of gold-colored popcorn cups, and fans can vote on the winners on the Internet.
The MTV Movie & TV Awards traditionally take place after the end of the film awards season around the Golden Globes and Oscars.
With categories like »Best Kiss«, villains, heroes and fight scenes, the younger audience is targeted.
