As part of the celebration, rock duo The Black Keys will perform a special rendition of their hit single "Gold On the Ceiling" in Depp's honor.

"Johnny Depp is a fearless, once-in-a-generation talent with a chameleon-like ability to inhabit any role," said Stephen Friedman, President of MTV. "With years of astonishing performances, Johnny has truly earned this Generation Award, and we look forward to honoring him with a can't-miss tribute at this year's Movie Awards."
