Jonah Hill, 2X Oscar nominee and friend of Marty, Leo, and Brange won a MTV Movie Award last night. In his speech, he gave Leo and Marty a bj. Leo, meanwhile, was dancing like an asshole at Coachella.

But Jonah Hill, 2X Oscar nominee and friend of Marty, Leo, and Brange, was also asked to present the Trailblazer Award to Channing Tatum. And the trope is turned on itself. You know, it’s the goodlooking high school quarterback who’s the asshole. He’s the one who can’t be kind or humble. And the awkward kid, the one who doesn’t come naturally into popularity, is the real personality who keeps getting held down.

So Jonah Hill introduces “Chan”. And Jonah Hill, 2X Oscar nominee and friend of Marty, Leo, and Brange, tells the story of how he OFFERED CHAN A JOB. How he called him and decided that he was the best person for the 21 Jump Street job. How he believed in Chan. How he believed that Chan could be funny. How he believed that Chan could do comedy. And that’s why Chan believed in himself.

You see what he did there? Jonah Hill, 2X Oscar nominee and friend of Marty, Leo, and Brange, is to Channing Tatum what Martin Scorsese is to Jonah Hill, 2X Oscar nominee and friend of Marty, Leo, and Brange.

And what did Channing Tatum do? Ever gracious, ever sweet, Chan got up there and almost cried from gratitude – for the fans, for his opportunities, for what he’s been able to achieve. Authentically. As always. The nicest and most appreciative, the most generous, Chan made Jonah Hill, 2X Oscar nominee and friend of Marty, Leo, and Brange, look bad without even trying.
