Mark Wahlberg to Receive Generation Award at the MTV Movie Awards


Following the announcements that Conan O’Brien will host and the list of nominees last week, MTV has now announced that Transformers: Age of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg will receive the “MTV Generation Award” at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards on April 13.

The cast of “Entourage” will be on hand to present the award to Wahlberg, who served as the show’s executive producer and whose life it was loosely based on. The 2014 MTV Movie Awards will be the first time Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon and Jerry Ferrara reunite ahead of the Entourage movie, coming in June of next year.

“Mark Wahlberg is the definition of a modern day Renaissance Man: from Dirk Diggler to ‘The Departed,’ ‘The Basketball Diaries’ to ‘Ted,’ ‘Entourage’ to ‘The Fighter,’ in front of the camera and behind — he’s done it all and he’s always memorable,” said Stephen Friedman, President of MTV. “Mark has captivated the MTV audience for over 20 years, and for this rare feat, we’re proud to recognize him with this year’s Generation Award.”
