Lil Rel Wins His First MTV Movie & TV Award for Best Comedic Performance

Client: Lil Rel Howery - Talent Date: 07/13/2018

Just before this year’s MTV Movie & TV Awards kicked off; Get Out’s Lil Rel walked away with the Best Comedic Performance award. The moment came to him as surprise as he stood with host Terrence J during a stream of the pre-show.  At first he was speechless but was able to deliver a message to those watching, particularly in his hometown of Chicago.

Come on man y’all dont do that to nobody….. Thanks to Jordan Peele for putting me in a movie. And shout out to all the young people in Chicago that have big dreams and dream big. Keep dreaming big. Don’t let your mistakes determine who you’re going to be… this is a blessing man. Wow

This marks as a turning moment for the Chicago comedian who has been working his way up in the ranks for years in comedy. Congrats to him on his first ever MTV Award.
