I was about to start this off saying that I don't normally watch the MTV Movie Awards but a browse through the archives tells a little bit of a different story as I did write about them last year. And here I am again. Rut-roh, this will be 2 years in a row and usually anything I do 2 years in a row becomes tradition. We'll see if I keep it up in 2011. But, enough about award watching habits in the past and future, let's take a look at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards Winners!
It doesn't come to a huge surprize to see that The Twilight Saga: New Moon won all the awards for categories it was nominated in including Best Female Performance (Kristen Stewart), Best Male Performance (Robert Pattinson), Best Kiss (Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson) and Best Film for a total of 4 wins. Next most wins is actually not for a film but a person as Robert Pattinson won 3 awards, 2 mentioned above along with the Global Superstar award. Also in a Twilight-relatedness, Anna Kendrick won for Breakout Star for her performance in Up in the Air. That's a lot of Twi-ness. I think my favourite line of the night was Peter Facinelli while accepting for Best Movie for The Twilight Saga: New Moon made the censors go loony during his speech, but said he wouldn't swear when thanking Stephenie Meyer as she is a Mormon. How sweet. Speaking of sweet, Ken Jeong's acceptance speech for Best WTF Moment for The Hangover was extremely touching and in high contrast to award he was accepting it for, but it still worked. I was thrilled to see Tom Felton win for Best Villain in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, well deserved win there!
Aziz Ansari was a very entertaining host for the show and in contrast to other award shos the winners here were more than happy to have very short acceptance speeches. The show did and live cast did run just a minute or two long, but overall held together quite well and was very entertaining. Two of the biggies of the night were seeing clips from upcoming films The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I. I can't believe we are already at the stage where we are seeing Harry Potter clips... I ran from the room and will again do my best not to see anything about the film until I'm happily sitting in the theatre in November later this year.
If you missed seeing the show you can watch it online over at MTV.ca here for Canadian viewers (you can also see the Eclipse clip there).
