Jennifer Lopez wore Mônot to pick up the Generation Award at the MTV Awards

Here are some photos from the MTV Movie & TV Awards, which were held last night to little buzz. I remember a time, not that long ago, when the MTV Movie Awards were pretty relevant to pop culture. Not so much these days. The biggest name at the show was Jennifer Lopez, who was only there to pick up her honorary award from MTV: The Generation Award. It’s like their lifetime achievement award, only they regularly give it to people in their 30s and 40s. Still, J.Lo showed up and she thanked “all the people who gave me this life. I want to thank the people who gave me joy, and the ones who broke my heart. The ones who were true, and the ones who lied to me. I want to thank true love, and I want to thank the way that I lied to myself, because that’s how I knew that I had to grow.” J.Lo’s dress is Mônot. She was so mad at the sun and wind on the red carpet.

Here’s Vanessa Hudgens in a custom Vera Wang. Cute, I guess.

Lana Condor in Valentino. I have to say, this Valentino collection has been a complete hit across Hollywood. I’m not sure we’ve seen every celebrity wearing one particular collection like this since early-days Marc Jacobs or Tom Ford-for-Gucci. Anyway, I actually hate this on Lana. Very unflattering.

And here’s Olivia Rodrigo in a vintage (1990s) Jean Paul Gaultier. I enjoy this. It goes with her throwback ‘90s vibe honestly.

    She looks like Melania tRump!

  2. Seaflower says:

    I’m surprised they don’t have screens for shade. The strong direct sunlight is not flattering.

  3. Merricat says:

    Heavy make-up + bright sunlight is not great.

  4. margot says:

    Her career is full of these meaningless vanity awards. She doesn’t have any real accolades. I’d feel sorry for her if she wasn’t so annoying.

    • DiegoInSF says:

      Good thing you don’t feel sorry for this trailblazing Latina icon!
      Thr real accolades are gatekept by old white men and she was never one to do what they wanted.

      • Ramona says:

        It’s not an Oscar but can folks be allowed to be proud of their accomplishments and achievements rather how small YOU think they are?

    • Brielle says:

      I think she is fine collecting these awards and that’s what I like about her:she is not condescending and look down on any awards and that mean to me she is grateful.
      I don’t know what she did to annoy you:like Beyoncé said,you know you’re that bitch when you cause all that conversation…

    • Annaloo. says:

      Jlo doesn’t get the the prestige awards, but she does get the PEOPLE awards …tho she’s definitely an attention seeker (what celeb isn’t), I think the latter has greater value for legend status

      • Brielle says:

        Prestige awards are hyper political…As a Woc, I thought Beyoncé should have won those Grammy’s instead of Taylor or that other band ..or that Jlo should have been nominated for Hustlers instead of Laura Dern for the millionth time….or even as a cinema enthusiast,how Gwyneth won instead of Cate Blanchett but now we know that the Weinstein machine was behind…

  5. HandforthParish says:

    My God why does this Valentino collection even exists?
    It looks like bad anime cosplay.

    JLo looks good but angry!!!

    Olivia Rodrigo looks amazing.

  6. Emily says:

    Olivia looks AMAZING.

    We were flipping channels and came across her on stage. She was so emotional over the award – we didn’t know if it was because she had a few drinks during the evening or if it was just *waves arms around at the world*. It just seemed a bit much for the MTV awards.

    • DiegoInSF says:

      She famously doesn’t drink.

    • Susan says:

      She also won the award for best movie song (which is ridiculous, it beat an Encanto song, but whatever) and she was strangely….unprepared for it. She seemed a little less rehearsed than usual. It was interesting.

      • Southern Fried says:

        I saw the video and she was messy. Cringe messy

      • Brielle says:

        She was emotional,humble and grateful…love her❤️

      • Ramona says:

        Now she is criticized for having feelings and the way she expresses them…People are not allowed to have emotions when they accomplish things.
        She is humble and celebrates every achievement in her life,small or big and good for her.

      • Carolnr says:

        @ Susan
        For what movie song? Not Marry Me?

    • Nyro says:

      She cries at the drop of a hat these days. I think it’s just her becoming more sentimental the older she gets.

      • Ramona says:

        It’s maybe because her and Ben have a new home where they moved in this week(Thursday or Friday) and that’s why she shouted him and the kids and she was rightfully emotional about it. I think she is grateful for that and her speech was all over the place but great.

      • Lens says:

        I just saw a replay of her acceptance speech and thought she was way over the top for getting an ugly popcorn award. All I remember of MTV awards is best kiss. They seem to be kind of jokey right? Someone said it was like the Oscar speech she had written out that she wasn’t nominated for.

    • Annaloo. says:

      I didn’t watch the awards show except for her clip, but all I want to know is who was that on the stage in that fantastic pink dress presenting the award?

  8. J. Ferber says:

    I loved to see the second, close-up picture of JLo’s face. Not trying to be mean, but she looks absolutely great for a 50+ woman. Glad the photoshop wasn’t used to make her look 25. It’s demoralizing for we women of a certain age to truly think JLo actually DOES look 25. The picture is still Goals for me since she looks phenomenal. (And her body look pre-50 by at least 10 years, probably more. THAT is hard work, which she puts in).

    • Brielle says:

      She seems to have great skin but she or her make up artist want to always put filters on and I don’t like it(not here because it is on the red carpet but on her instagram…ugh)..that’s the only thing I complain about her

    • oohnana says:

      Wish my tt’s looked that bomb

  9. SweetPotato says:

    Does anyone else here remember the vintage Bennifer gossip that Ben A. did not get along with Benny Medina? JLo even let Benny go when she was engaged to Ben A., then started working with him again after they broke up.

    The MTV awards reminded me of this fact b/c she thanked Benny profusely. Kind of dying to know what that dynamic is now (Ben & Benny).

  10. Christine says:

    Why did they have them posing facing the sun? My eyes are watering in sympathy.

  11. Ramona says:

    @sweetpotato Yes, I totally remember…there was an article in The NY Times who detailed how it happened.
    When Ben was with Jlo,he convinced her that Benny was taking advantage of her,that his fees were too high so she changed all her management staff and her agent to take Ben’s agent but it became bad between Jlo and Benny…and Ben had to intervene… After that,Benny badmouthed Jlo and all those stories about Jlo being a diva came from Benny…That’s why I never understood ppl saying that Jlo changed Ben,Ben was the one dominant in the relationship :she did everything to please him and still it wasn’t enough and he abandoned her to go marry someone ppl thought was more appropriate for him.(that’s why as a fan,I was flabbergasted when they reconciled)
    And if you want my opinion about their relationship now,they were seen hugging but do you remember all those articles when they began to see each other and how TMZ had emails from Benny saying that it was Ben who contacted her first:it was all Benny..I think he was not pleased at all and trying to sabotage them

    • SweetPotato says:

      So interesting, thank you! Agree that Ben A. seems controlling, he’s as much about image as she is.

      JLo seems like the type who needs a lot of people around her- not just a romantic partner. I think it got in the the way the first time and I wonder what they’re doing now to make it work.

  12. Carolnr says:

    Dress did not flatter her at all!
    Make up could have been alot better, also. It was too severe & made her look old!

    • Brielle says:

      She looks great ❤️

    • Celina says:

      She looks amazing and even more so on stage when she was accepting her award. She is naturally young looking cuz of of her Latin heritage, so she doesn’t shy away from mature looks….looking older and vixen-y is the goal….she accomplished that and Twitter was ablaze saying how hot she is and naturally fit her body is. The brittle Karen trolls were gagged and angry all night because she was the moment. Like always 😛
