The pre-MTV Movie Awards’ live stream showed celebrities arriving at the red carpet last night for an evening of sucking-in, smiling, and hair smoothing. All the stars looked fabulous on the live stream of the awards as they arrived in their limos and luxury cars, photographers clamored around Nikki Minaj’s black mat Bentley as hot as her curve-hugging dress. In the green room Talent Logistics personnel weaved through designer gowns. Celebrities smiled for the cameras before making their way to the venue. If you missed the MTV Movie Awards last night, here are some of the highlights and winners of the night.
There were many highlights, but first a recap of the winners of the night. Jared Leto won the Best Transformation Award for his work in Dallas Buyer’s Club. Jonah Hill took home the award for Best Comedic Performance for his supporting role in Wolf of Wall Street. Mila Kunis accepted the award for Best Villain for her role as the wicked witch in Oz the Great and Powerful. Zack Efron’s shirt was ripped off in front of screaming fans while he accepted his award for Best Shirtless Performance. Jonah Hill presented Channing Tatum with the Trailblazing Award, joking that the trail of gorgeous men who become movie stars was quite obviously blazed before him, and saying what everyone was thinking; there isn’t anything less trailblazing. Were the Millers actors Jennifer Aniston, Emma Roberts, and Will Poulter won best kiss, for their racy three-way screen kiss, but only Will Poulter was there to accept the award.
The winners of the night weren’t the only highlights of the MTV Movie Awards this year. Highlights included Rihanna and Eminem giving a flawless performance of their hit The Monster, and a tribute to the life of Fast and Furious Star Paul Walker, introduced by his on-screen wife, Jordana Brewster.
Leslie Mann, Cameron Diaz, Nikki Minaj, and Kate Upton paid homage to J.Lo’s new video I Luh Ya Papi, by objectifying the nominees for Best Male Performance, laying the innuendo on thick while presenting the award, which went to Josh Hutcherson for Catching Fire. Towards the end of the awards show, Adrienne Grenier, Jerry Ferrara, and Kevin Dillon presented the F-bomb-dropping producer of Entourage Mark Walberg with The Generation Award, which Walberg joked is actually “The You’re Too F$%^ing Old Award” ending his speech by thanking “the real entourage.”
Johnny Depp sported his signature brand of quirkiness as he presented the final award of the night, MTV’s Movie of the Year Award, which went to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Jennifer Lawrence was absent from the ceremony, but Josh Hutcherson and Sam Claflin were there to receive the award.
The MTV Movie Awards proved a fun night of celebrities, fashion, and entertainment. Host Conan O’Brien was hilarious, opening the awards show by adding his own winning categories such as Best Kiss Fight, and Best Product Placement, and performing a musical number about how he does not want to do a musical number. It proved a perfect distraction from the Sunday night blues.
