WATCH: Scarlett Johansson Gets Slimed Mid-MTV Awards Speech

  • Typically, slime is reserved for the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, but given all that ViacomCBS synergy, it's easy to mix things up. Scarlett Johansson found herself on the receiving end of that mistake Sunday night at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, where she took home the 2021 Generation Award for her storied career. But unfortunately for ScarJo, her acceptance speech met a disastrous end when her husband, Saturday Night Live's Colin Jost, dumped a bucket of Nickelodeon's iconic green slime on her head.

    Hey, at least he avoided the Golden Popcorn trophy, right?
