The "Fast & Furious" franchise continues to wreak havoc in the box office with "The Fate of the Furious," drowning out criticism for a film that most feel focused on action and fast cars rather than a sensible plot. Either way, MTV will be handing out something special in the form of a Generation Award at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards to the franchise.

This will be the first time the MTV would be handing out the Generation Award to a movie franchise. In the past, they gave the award to an individual actor but General Manager Amy Doyle made an exception with the global contribution of "Fast & Furious" to pop culture.

“From the diverse cast of beloved actors, to the music and fashion, we are honored to present the Generation Award to a franchise that continues to entertain millions of fans across the world," said Doyle through an official release.

Lead star Vin Diesel will be accepting the award on behalf of the "Fast & Furious" franchise together with co-stars like Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Jordana Brewster. All except for Brewster were part of the "The Fate of the Furious" or "Fast 8."

For the past 25 years, the Generation Award has been awarded only to people who have achieved an amazing body of work that speaks directly to the MTV audience. Among the people who received it in the past include Will Smith, Reese Witherspoon, Jamie Foxx, Johnny Depp, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Mike Myers, Tom Cruise and Jim Carrey.

Also lined up for the 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards are J Balvin and Pitbull will share the stage alongside Camila Cabello to perform “Hey Ma.” The song is one of the tracks from latest “The Fate of the Furious” movie.

Other artists expected to render performances include Detroit rapper Big Sean who will perform “Jump Out The Window.” It will be the first time for the single to be played on television, the next single from his album titled “I Decided.”

Noah Cyrus will also be taking the stage to perform “Stay Together,” her second single from the NC-17 album. The first one, “Make Me (Cry),” already achieved a milestone by surpassing 250 million global audio and video streams and remained on the Billboard Hot 100 charts for months.

The 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards will be hosted by comedian Adam Devine and will air live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles at 10 a.m. either through local TV or via the MTV official site.
