Scarlett Johansson Receives Sliming During 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards Acceptance Speech

Scarlett Johansson received the Generation Award at the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards, and her husband, Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update host Colin Jost, congratulated his wife in true Nickelodeon style.

Scarlett Johansson got slimed by her husband during the MTV Awards Sunday night. MTV

Yes, he slimed her.

Johansson expressed shocked when a smiling Jost poured green slime over her head as she concluded her virtual acceptance speech, in a move reminiscent of the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards.

"What the fu*k," Johansson exclaimed.

"MTV, you got slimed," said Jost.

"That's Nickelodeon," Johansson blurted.

"I'm very, very sorry," he said, as he promised to "get a towel."

Although it was the MTV Movie and TV Awards, Colin has half-right, as the awards were simulcast on Nickelodeon.

Like many viewers at home, Johansson wondered exactly where he got the slime. "Amazon," Jost responded. 

Johansson was honored with the Generation Award at Sunday's show. The award celebrates "beloved actors whose diverse contributions to both film and television have turned them into household names," a press release read.






The Marriage Story actor joined a roster of actors who previously received the award including Sandra Bullock, Jim Carrey, Reese Witherspoon, Adam Sandler, Tom Cruise, Will Smith and even Johansson's Marvel costars Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Pratt (Parks and Recreation).

Johansson and Jost are no strangers to Nickelodeon. In 2004, Johansson starred in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie in 2004, lending her voice to Mindy, the daughter of King Neptune. Meanwhile, Jost wrote for Nicktoons' popular animated series Kappa Mikey. His brother, Casey, is a writer and a producer for the hidden camera show Impractical Jokers.

"Thank you so much to my fans for riding the way with me and supporting my career so I can continue to have the good fortune to pursue the job that is my passion, and I realize what an absolute gift it is to have the opportunity to do what I love," Johansson said in her earnest speech. "I couldn't do it without your continued support."

The celeb couple announced their nuptials in October through a post on the Instagram page for Meals on Wheels America. The post showed a picture of a Staten Island Ferry with the words "Jost Married" across the image.

The couple met through Saturday Night Live: Johansson, 35, has hosted multiple times since 2006; Jost, 38, joined the show as a writer in 2005 before becoming head writer and Weekend Update co-anchor, opposite Michael Che.
