MTV Movie Awards: Twilight is the big winner

The MTV Movie Awards were held Sunday, and Twilight came out the biggest winner of the night, picking up awards for everything from Breakthrough Male Performance (Robert Pattinson) to Best Female Performance (Kristen Stewart), to Best Kiss, to Best Movie. I have to admit, I missed the first part of the show, and when I finally tuned in, I immediately felt the need for a drink. Something about all of those young people who looked like they were on drugs (and by “those young people” I mean Kristen Stewart). But after a Scotch on the rocks (or three), I was really feeling the love for Robert Pattinson. True, I’ve been feeling the love for him for a few weeks now, but after the MTV Awards, my crush has grown. He’s absolutely lovely. He’s so tall, and he stands with very cute little hunched shoulders. He seems genuinely humble and sweet, too. Unlike Kristen Stewart, who was too busy rolling her eyes and acting like she was above everything. Very ungrateful. K-Stew is totally unworthy.

I’ve also come out of the MTV Movie Awards feeling very strongly that R-Pattz really does have a serious crush on Kristen Stewart (K-Stew). Something about the way they “performed” their Best Kiss win. They both seemed to be acting silly, playing with the audience, who so clearly wanted to see them kiss (full disclosure: I was rooting for them to kiss too). R-Pattz looked into it, even though it was just a “game”. K-Stew totally teased him – she was the one to pull away, and R-Pattz looked disappointed. Was he “acting”? Though I love him (today), I don’t think he’s that good of an actor.

And now for the non-Twilight winners, losers and other. I’m just going to make a list of random thoughts I had during the show:

*Oh my God, Eminem’s bodyguards are going to kill Sacha Baron Cohen. More on that later.

*Zac Efron’s hair needs its own agent. It’s getting ridiculous, the way he has to have it styled so obviously, highlighted pieces falling just so across his forehead. His hair is ridiculous. Also: He seems nice, professional and epically boring.

* Vanessa Hudgens got a kiss from R-Pattz. You know she was into it way more than pretending to kiss The Styled Hair of Efron.

*Amy Poehler wins the newest MTV award, the WTF Award, for the peeing-in-the-sink scene in Baby Mama. Her speech in funny, though heavily edited for broadcast.

*This whole show is an extended promotion for Twilight/New Moon.

*Best Comedic Performance: Jim Carrey for Yes Man. Seriously? No, Man.

*Keifer Sutherland, fake crying during his presentation for the Generation Award, given to Ben Stiller. Pretty good fake cry. Felt embarrassed for Stiller, though. Instead of a toast, it was a roast, with Triumph leading the way.

*The whole LeAnn Rimes/Chris Isaacs thing, where they sang Andy Samberg’s songs, was ridiculous. Epic Fail.

*Forest Whitaker singing “D-ck in a Box”. Enough said.

*Why is Leighton Meester wearing a bondage outfit?

*Miley Cyrus wearing something out of the “whorish 40-something Kim Cattrall” cocktail dress collection. Miley wasn’t wearing a bra, you could tell, and she thanked God for her Best Song win by saying “I love you so much” to God and her manager.

All in all, the show was pretty good. Better than I expected, anyway. Host Andy Samberg seemed to channeling his alter-ego Mark Wahlberg, and he was dressed up in lovely suits and acting the gentleman. It’s difficult to really judge the MTV Awards – it’s not like the Oscars or even the Independent Spirit Awards. The fact that Twilight swept the awards speaks volumes about the film-snob priorities. It just made me feel like an old fart, though.

    who cares if the whole darn this was a plug for the new moon trailer — HOLY CRAP. it looks so exciting… not like a snore fest the first movie was. kudos to the new director.

  2. ash says:

    UM- what about Kristen Stewart dropping her award and saying how awkward she is, I never felt so bad for someone/ laughed my ass off in such a long time. That truly made my night. But, poor thing.

  3. ash says:

    BTW. Cameron Diaz is starting to look a little freaky.

  4. cookies says:

    that was funny when she dropped her award and also when andy samberg called megan fox ugly i laughed so hard . . .. megan fox did look pretty scary last night . . .

    I sincerely believe it’s a dynamic kind of power between Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson: she’s above everything, he’s into everything (and especially her).

    I don’t think he’d come off as sweet and likeable without Her Coolness by his side.

    From the segments, clips and interviews I’ve seen, I cannot not like Stewart. She has that perfect snotty attitude and doesn’t seem to feel the need to pretend. Plus, she just went to an Awards show wearing Converse Chuck Taylors… Granted, it wasn’t the Oscars.

    This just shows that everyone of the mainstream are retarded, or at the very least borderline retarded. I tried to watch this Twilight crap with my SEVEN y/o and it was horrendous!!!!! (not to knock my little one, she’s grades ahead in her reading levels) But this movie/film/waste of tape makes Wise Girls look Oscar worthy. (one of Mariah’s finer films)

    Twilight SUCKS.

    The new movie looks awesome. Hopefully. The Catherine Hardwick or whatever her name was really needed to stick to drama movies.
    Some of the scenes of twilight were so awkward and quit. And him running up the mountain? Horrible.
    It could only get better if they dropped the girl and found a better one.

    I haven’t been impressed by the New Moon trailer. TOOOOOOOO much makeup on the girls–yuck! And the wolf is not very believable. I have the impression the whole thing was a rush job to “strike while the iron is hot” and I think the original director had it right to take time developing the movie. It may end up being really crummy if there is a lot of CGI crap in it.
    I don’t think too much of Kristen Stewart as an actress. I see “coke-head”, inflated lips and breast implants in her near future. I agree with the poster who suggested she comes across as a snot in her interviews.

    oh pleeeease. the “actors” from twilight can’t even act. how they got an award?? it’s clear that MTV awards are not very coherent and trustful…. and this girl is just so annoying, she acts as she is above everything, but she is actually the worse in the movie (ps. even the movie having a lot of bad stuff).
    but best female perfomance? is somebody blind and deaf??? i thought she could only make a confused face when “acting” but based on an interview i saw, that’s not her “acting face”, she has that confused or perturbed look on her face. therefore, she didn’t even act in the movie.
    twilight sucks!

  11. queenie says:


    agreed…stewart is stewart is stewart…just like anniston can’t act either….every movie she is just herself. i will be really surprised if kristen stewart does anything more after this whole twilight thing…she just got lucky is all.

  12. Rosie says:

    Kristen Stewart just depresses me. I realize that the heroine was an akward teen, but gawd. Most movies don’t do the book justice and Twilight was no exception. Hopefully the sequel will be better.
