WE all know that the MTV Movie Awards is an event where celebrities get to let loose and go wild. Unlike the prim and proper Academy Awards, the MTV Movie Awards is all about having fun, dressing up wacky and simply enjoying the night without having to worry whether you’ll be taking home an Oscar or not.
Last weekend’s MTV Movie Awards was no different. Celebs came in their hordes, hand-in-hand with their loved ones; walking down the red carpet in their crazy outfits and giving us plenty to talk about.
Jennifer Aniston wore the tightest black leather dress known to mankind, Kristen Stewart rocked the night solo, and the boys of Magic Mike (Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and Joe Manganiello) definitely set the stage on fire with their collective hotness.
But of course, the hottest celebrities of the night were those who took home the “Moonman” statues for their outstanding work in movies over the past year.
Movie of the year
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part One
This vampire movie sucked the living daylights out of its competitors – The Hunger Games, The Help, Bridesmaids and Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part Two.
The mega blockbuster featuring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner has been a favourite at the MTV Movie Awards for years and the good thing is … there is only one movie left in the franchise, and then it’s finally out of our lives for good.
Sharm says: Seriously, I hate vampires … they suck.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart
The real life couple certainly did heat up the screen with their chemistry and romance in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part One. They showed passion for each other during their time on screen – something people don’t get to see in real life. They’re very private, these two.
Pattinson and Stewart beat Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone for Crazy, Stupid, Love, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two, Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson for The Hunger Games and Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum for The Vow.
Sharm says: I still find it hard to believe that Rob and Kristen are in a happy relationship. They always look so sour when photographed together.
Best male performance
He played a sharp, courageous hunter in The Hunger Games … oh, no wait, that was Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen. Anyway, Hutcherson’s portrayal of Peeta Mellark won him the title of Best Male Performance in a movie, beating out Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part Two), Ryan Gosling (Drive), Channing Tatum (The Vow) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (50/50).
Sharm says: There is no way Josh is a better actor than Ryan Gosling. This awards show is rigged, I tell ya!
Best female performance
Of course, it was Jennifer Lawrence who took the prize home for her awesome portrayal of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games. Girlfriend was fierce … and hot.
Lawrence proved herself a worthy winner, especially when she was up against Kristin Wiig (Bridesmaids), Emma Stone (Crazy, Stupid, Love), Emma Watson (Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part Two) and Rooney Mara (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo).
Sharm says: Notice how Kristen Stewart is not even nominated in this category? Yeah … that’s how great an actress she is.
OMG. This girl is super talented and it’s evident in the movie The Descendants that won her this award. Woodley has been in the industry for some time but it was this movie that cemented her status as not just an actress, but a brilliant one at that. She definitely outshined Melissa McCarthy for her role in Bridesmaids, Rooney Mara in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Liam Hemsworth in The Hunger Games and Elle Fanning in Super 8.
Sharm says: Erm, why is Liam Hemsworth in this category? Wasn’t he featured for like a good three minutes only in the movie. How can that be considered ‘Breakthrough performance’?
Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part Two
Everybody loves Harry Potter and his gang of friends, so it’s really fitting that they won in this category – which they will be nominated for the very last time (*sob*). Their magical camraderie and friendship beat out those in The Hunger Games, 21 Jump Street, The Help and Bridesmaids.
Sharm says: There will never be another gang of friends (and enemies) like those formed in Hogwarts … my alma mater.
Best on-screen dirtbag
Rachel Green’s innocent days are over. Aniston showed that she can play a horrible, terrible and sexually charged boss in Horrible Bosses, earning her this title (which was introduced for the first time this year). Aniston’s character deemed more evil than those played by Bryce Dallas Howard in The Help, Jon Hamm in Bridesmaids, Colin Farrell in Horrible Bosses and Oliver Cooper in Project X.
Sharm says: Jennifer was really good (way too good actually) as an evil cow in this movie. She sure is a devil in disguise!
