MTV Movie Awards

Written by June 4, 2012

Looks as if the three teen sagas shared the reigns at the MTV Movie Awards.  “The Hunger Games” took four wins out of eight nominations, but still folded to “Twilight” for “Movie of the Year.”  “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part II,” snagged “Best Cast” over hilarious comedy “Bridesmaids.” 

You can view the entire list of winners here and below we’ve profiled many our fave celebs who made appearances last night…

* Russell Brand – A veteran of hosting MTV’s Music Awards, this was his first stab at the Movie Awards; he was rumored to have been given no limits at all by MTV.

* Josh Hutcherson – Stole “Best Male Performance” from Channing Tatum  AND Daniel Radcliffe for his role in “The Hunger Games.”

* Jennifer Lawrence – “The Hunger Games” heroine’s win over Emma Stone and Kristin Wiig was no surprise for “Best Female Performance.”

* Johnny Depp – He didn’t win for “Best On Screen Transformation” for his stint in “21 Jump Street” but he did receive MTV’s Generation Award and rocked out on stage with “The Black Keys.”

* Mila Kunis – She was heckled while presenting the award for “Best On Screen Dirtbag” (accepted by Ms. Jennifer Aniston) but co-presenter Mark Wahlberg came to her quick defense.

* Kristen Stewart – Kristen presented the award for “Best Female Performance” with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” co-star Chris Hemsworth and won for “Best Kiss.” Too bad she had no Robert Pattinson present to give her the victory smooch.

* Emma Watson – Accepted the award for “Best Cast” by herself on behalf of the entire “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows II” gang.

* Joe Manganiello – Stole the show from presenters Matthew McConaughhey, Channing Tatum and “Best On Screen Transformation” winner, Elizabeth Banks.

* Emma Stone – The token redhead made an appearance as a blonde and accepted the “Trailblazer Award” from MTV.

* Christian Bale – After introducing a clip of “The Dark Knight Rises” with Gary Oldman Joseph Gordon-Levitt and director, Christopher Nolan, he got emotional over a clip with Heath Ledger.
