Chris Pratt’s MTV Movie Awards Acceptance Speech Was Equal Parts Hilarious and Adorable
This year’s MTV Movie Awards were full of some major OMG-worthy moments. First came Ryan Reynolds’ hilarious shout-out to Blake Lively, then there was the ultimate Pitch Perfect kiss and of course you can’t forget all the fabulous red-carpet fashion. But our vote for sweetest moment of the night definitely goes to Chris Pratt and his heartfelt acceptance speech.
Chris took home the award for “Best Male Performance” for his raptor-wrangling role in Jurassic World (and congrats to him on that well-deserved win), but it was his speech that we’re still swooning over. Taking the stage in casual denim and a slick blue leather jacket, Pratt held up his golden popcorn award and proudly stated, “I want to thank Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme… Liam Neeson, David Hasselhoff and God.”
Before you’re all, “Why the heck is that sweet?!,” Chris continued, “AND OF COURSE, MY WIFE ANNA FARRIS! Darlin’, our son was destined to be tough, but thanks to you he’s going to be smart, too.” Just… so… sweet! We love you forever, Chris.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
