    Jennifer Lopez has brought home an MTV award. This Sunday, MTV Movie & TV Awards took place in California. The show was a star-studded event with Vanessa Hudgens, Paris Hilton, and Sydney Sweeney Of ‘Euphoria‘ gracing the event.

    The singer-turned-actress, 51, shed a few tears as she accepted the MTV Movie and TV Award Generation Award. Her thank-you speech was nothing less than iconic. She also gave a cute shoutout to her fiancé, Ben Affleck.

    After wiping away some tears, she brought her speech to an end with a joke. “Ben and everyone at home, wait for me to have dinner – I will be home by 7!”

    The ‘Ain’t Your Mama‘ singer was presented the gong by Vanessa Hudgens. This was followed by a montage of J-Lo’s classic film appearances over the years.

    As the clip came to an end, Jenny took the time to thank, “all the wonderful people I have been blessed to work with”.

    She continued: “You are only as good as the people you work with and if you are lucky they make you better. Thank you to the people who gave me this life, the people who gave me joy, and the ones who broke my heart.

    The ones who were true and the ones who lied to me. Thank you to disappointment and failure for teaching me to be strong, and to my children for teaching me to love.”

    Her speech was met with a huge cheer from the audience. The pop icon also thanked people who discouraged her. “I want to thank all the people who told me to my face and behind my back, I couldn’t do this – I really don’t think I could have done this without you.”

    She concluded her speech by saying: “It is an honor to be able to connect with audiences and you guys, and because of you I will continue to do justice to that honor as long as I am around.”

    At last, she had a joke reserved solely for her hubby-to-be. “Thank you so much. And to Ben and everyone at home, wait for me to have dinner. I will be home by 7!”

    Lopez Bags Another Award!

    This wasn’t the only award bagged by her. She was surprised by another golden popcorn trophy, this time for Best Song for ‘On My Way’ from her film ‘Marry Me‘. She told the audience in her acceptance speech that she “didn’t expect this.” She also explained how the tune is “a really personal song”.

    “It’s about faith and belief in every step of your journey,” she said. “Even what seems like the mistakes, they’re just a step in your yellow brick road. And it makes me so happy that it touched your hearts.”
