[BRIGHTCOVE “20999355” “” “peoplenow” “auto” ]Turns out Ryan Reynolds win for best comedic performance at this year’s MTV Movie Awards was just as over the top – in a good way – as the movie which earned him the honor.

Reynolds’ win Saturday for his starring role in Deadpool was preceded by a doubly surprising musical performance: A group of dancing Deadpools, and presenters Zac Efron and Seth Rogen, jamming along to Salt-N-Pepa’s “Shoop” (a favorite of the comic book mercenary).

“For starters, I’m really [glad] Amy Schumer didn’t win. That would have been really weird with those dancers,” Reynolds, 39, said in his acceptance speech.

He also took the time to shout-out the film’s fans, whose devotion helped make the movie, 10 years in the making, a smash hit.

“You pushed it over the top,” he said.

He also added a special shout out to his wife, Blake Lively, saying, “Everything I do is to make her laugh, especially the sex.”

Watch Zac Efron and Seth Rogen announce his win.

The 2016 MTV Movie Awards will air Sunday (8 p.m. ET) on MTV.
