Packed in those two hours and 10 minutes will be 14 awards — from more standard categories like movie of the year to more eccentric categories like best virtual performance — as well two special awards: the comedic genius award for Melissa McCarthy (the first female to be awarded the accolade) and the generation award for Will Smith.


In between the handing out of Golden Popcorn statues, there will be live performances by Ariana Grande and Halsey, as well as exclusive looks at the forthcoming Suicide Squad, Captain America: Civil War and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
