The MTV Movie Awards have been a bit of a circus since its launch in 2012.
The show is often a little bit too heavy handed for the standards of mainstream entertainment, with judges giving awards for “funny” or “dramatic” performances.
But in 2016, there were plenty of awards to choose from, including the biggest surprise of the year for Parker and the best actress of the show, Jennifer Lawrence.
Parker took home an Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her role as Jennifer Lawrence in “The Birth of a Nation,” a film about the massacre at Wounded Knee, South Carolina.
(That honor goes to Jennifer Lawrence for her performance as Sarah Wayne Callies in “Lawrence of Arabia,” which was nominated for Best Picture.)
The show has also been a hit with fans, with over two million fans watching the ceremony live on the web.
Parker’s career took off after “The Wiz” ended, but she also starred in “Moonlight,” the musical about her teenage years, which won Best Musical for a Drama.
This year, she played a key role in the movie “The Revenant,” which tells the story of the 2012 shooting of four Black men at a Louisiana gas station.
(The movie was nominated twice for Best Film, but only won the Best Picture trophy twice, once in 2014 and again in 2017.)
Parker has had a huge year, appearing in the Oscar nominated film “Wonder Woman” and playing an influential role in “Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
Parker has been the focus of much criticism since “The Wedding” was nominated.
On Thursday, her social media posts went viral after she posted a picture of herself in a black tie wedding dress and captioned it “I feel so blessed and honored.”
The comments were shared more than 11,000 times.
“The wedding dress was a gift from my beautiful, supportive family.
It is the gift I have been working for all my life,” she wrote.
“I want to take this moment to thank everyone who has given me their support during this challenging time.
I love you.
And I am forever grateful for the privilege of being able to be your daughter.”
The following day, Parker shared a picture on Instagram of herself and her mother, who is black, and captioning it “Thank you for sharing my wedding dress.
I have always wanted this dress for a long time, and I will always love it.”
In a video posted on Instagram, she said, “I have so many happy memories of this wedding.
But I have to admit that I feel so privileged and honored that I could share it with you.
Thank you for giving me this dress.
Yours sincerely, Melissa.”
The two are still very much friends, and Parker shared her feelings about the backlash against the wedding dress on her Instagram account.
“This wedding dress is a gift.
It has always been an important part of my life and has always made me feel special.
It will always be a part of who I am and what I have become.
I am so thankful for you and your support,” she said.
“Thank YOU for all the love and support.
I cannot express enough love and gratitude for all your love, support and support.”
Parker’s comments are an indication of just how many critics have found Parker’s wedding dress offensive, and her apology on social media seems to be a clear attempt to repair some of the damage done.
Parker tweeted that she was “so proud of my dress” and thanked everyone for their support.
“Its been so incredibly difficult for me to deal with the backlash and I am proud to say that all of you loved my dress so much.
The best part of the whole day was the way I had my cake ready for my husband and my daughter.
Thank YOU,” she continued.
Parker said that she is “very happy with the response” from the critics.
“People have been really kind to me, and as a person, I’ve learned a lot,” she added.
“And I think people can be really forgiving and understanding and supportive, even though they don’t like me.”
“The fact that people were really kind and supportive was incredible,” Parker said.
And she didn’t hide her disappointment over the backlash.
“It was devastating, and a lot of people are still hurting,” she explained.
“So it was a lot to deal, and it was devastating.”
“I just wanted to say, you know, I have this wedding dress in my closet, and so I am really grateful to you for being so supportive,” she concluded.
Parker, 36, was a high school cheerleader before winning a scholarship to the University of New Mexico, where she majored in music.
She later played with the New York Dolls and was nominated in 2007 for her song “I’m So Proud.”
“We were the only group of kids that could dance,” Parker told MTV News in 2015.
