The "Horrible Bosses" star gave a special shout-out to her show "Friends" for unleashing her "inner sweetheart."

Jennifer Aniston has probably never received an award like the one she got on Sunday night at the MTV Movie Awards: Best On-Screen Dirtbag.

The actress, who won for her role as dentist Julia Harris in Horrible Bosses, beat out her co-star Colin Farrell, Bryce Dallas Howard (The Help), Jon Hamm (Bridesmaids) and Oliver Cooper (Project X) for the honor.

Best On-Screen Dirtbag was the first award of the night at the annual MTV event held at Universal City’s Gibson Amphitheatre on June 3. Mila Kunis and Mark Wahlberg announced the nominees for the category before calling up Aniston as the winner.

“Do you know how long I have tried to have somebody let me unleash my onscreen dirtbag?" the actress told the audience. "A long time, and thank god this category just popped up.”

However, even as the newly-crowned On-Screen Dirtbag queen, Aniston was sure to honor her nice-girl past.

"I would like to say thank you to the television show Friends for letting me unleash my inner-sweetheart,” she said. “And here's to [Horrible Bosses director] Seth Gordon for letting me be a dirtbag.”

As for the rest of the awards of the night, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 took home the top honor of best movie, while Hunger Games stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson won for best female and male performances.
