This year’s MTV Movie & TV Awards was a riot for two of the most famous actors in Hollywood right now. Tom Holland and Zendaya have been brought up in the industry with careers starting at a very young age. They have had shows and movies which has catapulted them to early fame. But unlike many who fail to rise beyond the child-actor phase, both of them continued uphill in their achievements and are now stars in one of the leading franchises of Hollywood — Marvel. Besides starring in big-time superhero movies, Zendaya has been busy modeling and having her own TV show, Euphoria. As the categories and nominations fill the chart for the past year’s achievements at MTV Movie & TV Awards, the pair have won in almost every category possible for their respective movies and series.
Tom Holland and Zendaya Wins At MTV Movie & TV Awards 2022
The award ceremony was a spectacular show for the power couple. The categories and the respective winners went as follows:
- Best Movie — Spider-Man: No Way Home
- Best Performance in a Movie — Tom Holland
- Best Show — Euphoria
- Best Performance in a Show — Zendaya
It is evident that the Best Performance category already belonged to Holland for his top-tier performance in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Zendaya also went on to grab Best Performance for her incredible portrayal of the life of a troubled suburban high-school teenager navigating drugs, alcohol, and sexuality in Euphoria.
The other categories like Best Kiss for which the two were again nominated went to Jackass Forever‘s Sean McInerney and a snake. Best Team was awarded to Loki leaving behind the popular multiversal team-up between Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland in NWH.
