The star of “Django Unchained” is set to receive the MTV Generation Award during Sunday’s ceremony, after distinguishing himself not just in a variety of movie genres, but in a variety of mediums, including film, music and television.

The actor, whose next role is in “White House Down” opposite Channing Tatum, has already received numerous honors for his big-screen performances, including a Golden Globe, BAFTA Award, Screen Actors Guild honor and Academy Award for his turn as iconic singer-songwriter Ray Charles in “Ray.” But MTV’s award will undoubtedly be the first in his trophy case that looks like the thing his audiences bring with them into theaters: a tub of popcorn.

In receiving MTV’s Generation Award, Foxx follows in the footsteps of cinematic icons including Johnny Depp, Reese Witherspoon, Sandra Bullock, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Mike Myers, Tom Cruise and Jim Carrey.
