Scarlett Johansson left stunned after getting slime pranked by her husband during MTV Awards

Scarlett Johansson was slimed by her husband Colin Jost midway through her acceptance speech at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 36-year-old actress appeared via video as she was honoured with the Generation Award at the ceremony on Sunday night (16.05.21) - and was in for a surprise.

As she teased her new film, the Saturday Night Live writer poured the green gunge all over his spouse.

She said: "It's my great pleasure to share with you a sneak peak from a film that is the culmination of 10 years of work and one of the greatest."

And after getting slimed, she reacted: "What the f***."

Colin - who tied the knot with the Black Widow star last October - had jokingly or purposely mixed up MTV with Nickelodeon, which is known to slime its guests and celebrities.

He said: "MTV you got slimed!", to which she corrected her other half: "That's Nickelodeon!"

He responded: "S***... I'm very, very sorry."

After trying to remove some of the green slime from her hair, Scarlett told him: "Don't touch me. Let me get it! Where did you even get this?"

Colin then said: "I love ya. Amazon!"

Meanwhile, WandaVision was the big winner at the first night of the MTV Movie & TV Awards, taking home four prizes.

As for the iconic Best On-Screen Kiss award, that went to Outerbanks stars Madelyn Cline and Chase Stokes - who recreated the moment on stage. 

Held over two evenings, the second seeing the launch of the inaugural Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted, which is billed as a celebration of all things reality TV. 

The event saw RuPaul's Drag Race take home several awards including best host, best reality cast, and best competition series.

Elsewhere South Korean group BTS took home the award for best music documentary for their movie BTS: Break the Silence: The Movie.
