Will Smith was given the MTV Generation award regarding his film career over the last two decades. Halle Berry, who presented the award, praised Will as “a champion for diversity in Hollywood.

“[He] blazes a path for actors by showing that someone of any colour can play any role, and can open any movie and win any award and be the biggest freaking movie star in the whole world.”

When accepting the award, Smith joked about the honour as “code for the old dude award”.
