J.Lo and Bethenny Frankel’s MTV Awards Speeches Were Oscar-Worthy

Jennifer Lopez and Bethenny Frankel gave effusive and varied performances as

“human women accepting awards” at the MTV Movie & TV Awards on June 5.

Famed nude lip–wearer J.Lo won the Generation Award for her work as an actor, of all things,

which put her in the same lineage as past recipients Chris Pratt and the entire cast of the Fast & Furious franchise.

She clearly took this as a great honor, crying through much of a speech that may have been originally

drafted as an Oscars acceptance speech for Hustlers but worked fine here

with the addition of a Ben Affleck mention.

“I wanna thank all the people who told me to my face or when I wasn’t in the room that I couldn’t do this!” J.Lo said,

“I really don’t think I could have done it without you.” It’s worth remembering that the MTV Movie & TV Awards statue is a golden bucket of popcorn.
