Dwayne Jonson will be presented with the prestigious Generation Award at the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards next week. "Johnson is an icon on both film and TV who has become one of the most beloved actors of our generation," MTV general manager Amy Doyle said Thursday in a statement. "Throughout his career, Johnson has proven to be the ultimate bada**--an action star with a flair for comedy, one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time and a true family man. He continues to captivate his audience worldwide and we are thrilled to celebrate him with the Generation Award." Past Generation Award honorees include Chris Pratt, Will Smith, Tom Cruise, Reese Witherspoon, Mark Wahlberg, Sandra Bullock, and the Fast and Furious franchise--of which Johnson has since become a part.
