'Fast & Furious' Franchise to Receive Generation Award at 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards
By Alex Ungerman
Fast & Furious is getting some serious recognition.
The monster film franchise, which has spanned nearly 17 years and eight movies, including the latest installment, The Fate of the Furious, is being honored with the Generation Award at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards.
In a year of firsts, MTV announced Friday that its annual awards show -- which is switching formats from being solely movie focused to honor TV shows as well -- will recognize the film franchise instead of paying tribute to just a single individual this year.
Over the past 25 years, the award has been given to a ton of big-name stars, including Will Smith, Reese Witherspoon, Robert Downey Jr., Sandra Bullock and Jamie Foxx.
