We have to congratulate Jada Pinkett Smith, as it’s just been announced that she will receive the highly prestigious Trailblazer Award at next week’s MTV Movie and TV Awards.
What an honor! The Trailblazer Award is given to famous faces who use their positions to inspire change and positivity in the world.
According to MTV, the award “recognizes game-changing creators with fresh and fearless voices in entertainment,” and has previously been given to the likes of Shailene Woodley, Emma Stone, Channing Tatum, Emma Watson, and most recently Lena Waithe, who received the honor just last year.
“Jada has been a powerhouse since the beginning of her career and has achieved multi-hyphenate status throughout,” said Amy Doyle, a spokesperson for MTV.
“She is the epitome of someone who is not afraid to challenge the status quo and we are thrilled to present her with this year’s Trailblazer Award.”
Jada’s award will be presented to her by her hilarious Girls Trip co-star Tiffany Haddish.
Do you think Jada Pinkett Smith is a worthy recipient?
This year’s MTV Movie and TV Awards will be hosted by Shazam! star Zachary Levi, and will air on MTV on Monday, June 17 at 9 pm.
