This year’s MTV Movie Awards began with an introduction to die for. The Hangover II took over the screen with a new approach and character: Jason Sudeikis, this year’s host for the MTV Movie Awards. Introduced to the world in 1992 with the intentions to shine light on those who have performed extraordinary well in film, the Movie Awards, like its sister event, MTV Video Music Awards, give the fans the opportunity to voice their opinion by voting for whoever they feel deserves the award.
19 years later, the legacy continues and on Sunday, June 5, Jason Sudeikis hosted the humor-filled show that, in my opinion, could have been better. Many of the awards went to those who are obviously talented, but then there were those who seemed to have “gotten a break” in Hollywood.
For instance, the actors in Twilight won several—almost all—awards during the show. This was shocking because the performances in Twilight were mediocre, to say the very least. It was an emotional film, but Kristen Stewart is better at being an awkward speaker than an actress. Yet, she walked away with three awards: Best Female Performance, Best Kiss, and Best Movie.
Did I say Best Movie? Yes. But I shouldn’t fail to mention that they won against the mind-boggling duo of Inception and Black Swan.
But on a better note, MTV is known for awarding a specific actor/actress with the Generation Award. It highlights an individual’s career while showing appreciation for charity work. This year, the recognition was given to Reese Witherspoon, who has been in the industry since 1991. She is heavily involved in children and women’s advocacy work, including Save the Children and Children’s Defense Fund.
