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.
