MTV Movie Awards Should Be Renamed MTV Twilight Awards


It’s really nice that so many celebrities showed up for the 2010 Twilight Awards…er, MTV Movie Awards. The ceremony boasted a pretty great Tom Cruise dance number, Sandra Bullock in her first official public appearance since you know what, Aziz Ansari as master of ceremonies, and lots and lots of Twilight.

We have to say that we were touched by Sandra Bullock’s appearance. Not only did she look amazing in her black sequined dress (somewhere, Jesse James is crying on his sex couch over what he will never have again), but she seemed energized by the crowd and eager to move on from the crap of the past six months. Our favorite line of hers, after she accepted her Generation Award, was when she encouraged us all to “go back to making fun of me”. Oh, Sandy. Why you gotta be so likable? Also, why you gotta make All About Steve?

This year may not have seen Borat‘s taint landing just south of Eminem’s nostrils, but there were a few surprising moments that were interspersed with all the Twilight-love-festing going on. The Kiss Cam that caught Russell Brand and Jonah Hill locking lips, Xtina‘s light-up heart vagina and Ken Jeong‘s moving, but still WTF-ish acceptance speech when he received his WTF Award were among some of the more attention-getting, but the biggest surprise of all was the lack of bleeping during Peter Facinelli‘s f*ck-filled speech. Facinelli accepted the Best Movie award on behalf of the entire cast of New Moon, and he surely thought that his f-bomb laden speech would be censored only…it wasn’t. So there was a whole lotta f*ckin’ going on.

New Moon and its stars swept all the major categories (Best Male Star and Best Female Star went to Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, respectively, and the pair won Best Kiss – check out their acceptance speech above), while co-star Anna Kendrick picked up the Breakout Star award for her role in Up In The Air. All that in addition to winning Best Film and generally being the most-talked-about subject of everyone’s jokes all night. So what do you think? Was the show too Twilight-heavy, or do these vamps deserve all the awards they earned? Did we miss any of your favorite moments? Let us know what you think in the comments, and check out our mega-gallery from the night below.
