It’s sad to say that the 2012 MTV Movie Awards have already come and gone. So, exactly what went down and who came out on top?
Here are some highlights of the night:
British funny guy, Russell Brand, did a better job than expected as this year’s host of the awards show. And by that I mean he at least semi-behaved himself. But, did he go overboard with the Kim and Kanye sex tape talk? Or talking about Michael Fassbender and Alec Baldwin’s, um, private parts ? OR tempting Charlie Sheen with drugs and alcohol? Nah.
Brand also stated at the beginning of the show that the last time he hosted an awards show he married a person that was there, cough Katy Perry, so he said he was going to keep his eyes peeled for a new contender. We look forward to hearing who the lucky gal may be….ladies?
Alternative band Fun. did a great job kicking off the show and getting the crowd going with their hit single “We Are Young” along with R&B singer Janelle Monae.
The legend himself, Charlie Sheen, made an appearance onstage to introduce rapper Wiz Khalifa. But first, he presented Project X as this year’s “Cult Classic Party Movie.” How fitting, since Sheen states that his whole life is a party movie. He then went on to discuss the “Cult classic party movie basics” which every party movie should have in order to achieve the “Sheen Seal of Approval.” They are:
- More Beer
- Party fouls
An extremely skinny Wiz Khalifa performed his hit song “Work Hard, Play Hard.” The crowd was given the party essentials: red plastic solo cups and toilet paper rolls which were thrown all over the stage. Very appropriate.
There was also the classic case of The Hunger Games vs. Twilight debate apparent as the night went on. After tallying the scores for the amount of awards received, Hunger Games took home four awards while Twilight only earned itself two. BUT, Twilight did snag the most important award of the night, “Movie of the Year” – better luck next time, HG.
Steven Tyler and Joe Perry presented Johnny Depp with “the Generation award.” Completely well deserved since he is the king of reinventing himself. Depp then surpriseed the entire audience as he performed with the Black Keys! On the guitar, Depp helped the band play two songs and absolutely killed it. Oh, and let’s not forget Steven Tyler spitting out his gum right on the stage….woops.
The cast of The Dark Knight Rises, Christian Bale, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Gary Oldman also took the stage to take a look back at clips of where The Dark Knight trilogy began. Christian Bale got teary eyed remembering Heath Ledger and Director Christopher Nolan joins them to introduce the never-before-seen footage of the highly anticipated movie. The clip was full of Anne Hathaway’s sass as cat woman, a scary masked man, bridges collapsing, intense police chases, explosions, robberies, armies at war, and…Batman in Jail?! Wowza. Watch the conclusion to the story, in theaters July 20, 2012.
There were several other memorable moments to remember, such as Andy Samberg admitting to “licking his dog’s butthole,” sexy strip teases, as well as Kristen Stewart making out with herself. But of course, the most memorable were all the winners of the awards. Click here to see the complete list.
