Last night, at the Gibson Amphitheater at Universal City here in SoCal, the 2010 MTV Movie Awards were handed out to … well, mostly to any and everyone remotely involved with The Twilight Saga: New Moon. We already know last night was a big night for Sandra Bullock who showed up at the MTV Movie Awards to collect this year’s Generation Award but, the affair was fun for the many celebs who made their way onto the red carpet last night … here are a few pics from the arrivals last night:
As you can see, Lindsay Lohan found another fabulous way to keep her SCRAM alcohol-monitoring bracelet underwraps … see, and you thought genie pants were totally useless. Seth Green showed off his new wife, Katy Perry showed off her new blue wig (think Marge Simpson at age 22) and Kristen Stewart showed off a sassy new dress! See, fun for all!! After the jump, check out some photos from the show itself and find out what went down on the stage of the 2010 MTV Movie Awards last night …
It was no surprise that Sandra Bullock stole the show at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday in Universal City, Calif. It was the brief, awkward kiss with Scarlett Johansson that was unexpected … Bullock’s presence at the event capped off a comeback weekend for the actress, who made a surprise appearance to accept the Troops Choice Award for Entertainer of the Year at Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards on Saturday. It marked her first public appearance since the end of her marriage to Jesse James and the news that she had adopted a baby boy. “No matter what you might have seen or heard or read lately, I love what I do, and I’m not going anywhere,” the best-actress Oscar winner told the MTV crowd … Looking sharp and sleek in a black sequined minidress with a plunging back (“Honey, don’t ever wear that dress backwards,” White advised), Bullock capped off her speech with the kiss and a plea for viewers to say a prayer for the people affected by the oil spill in the Gulf. Twilight: New Moon was a big award winner. The best kiss award went to stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Sending fans into a frenzy, Stewart said, “I guess we’re supposed to kiss each other … we don’t want to let you down. But we’ll give it a shot.” The co-stars and real-life are-they-or-aren’t-they couple tried to pretend to awkwardly attempt to kiss, but the result was, well, awkward. Pattinson finally planted a quick one on Stewart before she shrieked and they darted offstage. Twi-hard fans also voted the duo best male and female performers and best movie for Twilight: New Moon. “Twilight is really awesome, and I agree,” said Stewart, who seemed at a loss for words upon accepting her Golden Popcorn statue. The night’s performances included a surprise from Jennifer Lopez — with a hip-hop dance number alongside Tom Cruise, who reprised his hot-tempered movie executive persona Les Grossman from Tropic Thunder. As the unlikely duo took over the stage to Ludacris’ Get Back, Cruise’s wife Katie Holmes cheered her husband on from the audience. Snoop Dogg and Katy Perry performed California Gurls in a beachy postcard-picture set. Christina Aguilera donned a shimmery cape and a scandalously placed flashing heart in her electric performance. Amanda Seyfried won best scared-as-(expletive) performance for her role in Jennifer’s Body, while Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince star Tom Felton won best villain. The Hangover stars Zach Galifianakis took home best comedic performance and Ken Jeong won best WTF moment. Get Him to the Greek stars Jonah Hill, Russell Brand and Sean “Diddy” Combs presented the award for best breakout star to Up in the Air’s Anna Kendrick. “Every time you open your mouths, I get less cool,” said Combs of his co-stars, who expressed their admiration for male stars in the audience. “I’ve got Bieber fever!” exclaimed Brand. Kendrick kept her acceptance speech short: “I am not cool enough to win an MTV Movie Award, so I’m not going to mess it up by talking more than I should.” Also in attendance: Lindsay Lohan, whose sparkly jumpsuit cleverly concealed her alcohol-monitoring anklet.
MTV really knows how to throw a party and when it comes to their Movie Awards, fans rule. The fact that Twilight keeps winning everything should come as no surprise to anyone. I am glad to see that other folks took home awards for non-Twilight-related projects but, yeah, expect the Twilight films to clean up for years to come. Whether or not your faves won last night, you have to admit … the show was fun to watch. Click HERE to see a full list of 2010 MTV Movie Award winners.
