Jamie Foxx Honoured With MTV Generation Award
Django Unchained star will accept the accolade at the bash on Sunday...
Even if he doesn't take home the award for Best Male Performance,Jamie Foxx will walk home from the 2013 MTV Movie Awards with a trophy in hand.
The star of Django Unchained is set to receive the MTV Generation Award during Sunday's ceremony (April 14), after distinguishing himself not just in a variety of movie genres, but in a variety of mediums, including film, music and television.
Foxx, whose next role is in White House Down opposite Channing Tatum, has already received numerous honors for his big-screen performances, including a Golden Globe, BAFTA Award, Screen Actors Guild honor and Academy Award for his turn as iconic singer-songwriter Ray Charles in Ray.
But MTV's award will undoubtedly be the first in his trophy case that looks like the thing his audiences bring with them into cinemas: a tub of popcorn.
In receiving MTV's Generation Award, Foxx follows in the footsteps of cinematic icons including Johnny Depp, Reese Witherspoon, Sandra Bullock, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Mike Myers, Tom Cruise and Jim Carrey.
At the 2013 ceremony, however, Foxx isn't the only performer who's a guaranteed honouree: Will Ferrell (The Campaign) is receiving the Comedic Genius Award for his countless performances in TV and film, and Emma Watson (Harry Potter) is scheduled to take the stage to accept MTV's Trailblazer Award.
You can catch all the action from the Rebel Wilson-hosted MTV Movie Awards when it hits MTV UK on April 15 @ 21:00!
