Chris pratt will receive the generation award at the mtv movie & tv awards
He’ll be joining the elite ranks of the Fast & Furious franchise, Will Smith, Reese Witherspoon, Mark Wahlberg, Sandra Bullock, Jamie Foxx, Tom Cruise, and more celebrated stars as a recipient of the top honour, which recognizes outstanding achievement in entertainment.
Pratt first charmed his way into all of our hearts on NBC’s Parks and Recreation before starring in mega-franchises Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, and showing off his versatility in prestige films like Zero Dark Thirty and The Magnificent Seven.
Most recently, the leading man appeared alongside fellow Generation Award winner Robert Downey Jr. in box office record-breaker Avengers: Infinity War, and he’s sure to make even more waves when he returns as dinosaur whisperer Owen Grady in this summer’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Tiffany Haddish is set to host the annual event, where Black Panther and Stranger Things lead the nominees with seven and six nominations — including in the Best Movie and Best Show categories — respectively.
