Scarlett Johansson gets slimed during MTV Awards by Colin Jost while accepting her Generation Award

Colin Jost congratulated wife Scarlett Johansson for her Generation Award at the MTV Movie and TV Awards in sensational style.

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 “Kid’s Choice” awards 

“What the (expletive),” 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.”

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” actress joined a roster of actors who previously received the award including Sandra Bullock, Jim Carrey, Reese Witherspoon, Adam Sandler and Tom Cruise.

“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.
