Battle of the “Bridemaids” and “The Hunger Games” but Harry Potter crowned hero “Twilight” outshines

By Kelly J Newson

Sunday night at the Gibson Amphitheater in Universal City, CA, the MTV movie awards took the stage with Russell Brand as host and indie pop group .fun as the opening act. After .fun opened the show, Russell Brand came out and made some jokes … even joked about his and Katy Perry’s marriage as well as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West dating one another and doing a sex tape together. Thankfully, the show wasn’t all about Russell Brand but in old MTV fashion, MTV brought out some Hollywood veterans such as the incredible Jodie Foster who presented “The Twilight saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1,” with the movie of the
year award.

Also on hand was Martin Sheen, who introduced Wiz Khalifa performing his latest hit, “Work hard, Play Hard” with his beautiful fiance, Ms. Amber Rose, rocking along with him in the audience. Also hitting the stage and bringing some rock to tonight’s show were “The Black Keys” with surprise guest Johnny Depp right before he accepted his Generation award presented by Steven Tyler. Let”s not forget Emma Stone receiving
her award for being a Trail Blazer. After receiving her award, she gave a heartfelt and motivating speech, even saying she was deeply touched to receive such an award. Also on hand was Hollywood veteran John Claude Van Damme who was seen walking the red carpet taking pictures and greeting the media. With all the talk about “Bridemaids” and “The Hunger Games” going toe to toe with eight nominations apiece, it was “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” that took home the gold popcorn for “Best Cast” and “Best Hero.” As the ceremony drew closer to the end, the cast of the new movie “The Dark Knight Rising” presented a film reel of highlights of the past “Dark Knight” films just before revealing an exclusive clip of the final installment — “The Dark Knight Rising,” — which is still in production and from the looks of it will also be epic.

Tonight’s show was good, and MTV as always brought out the hottest of the hot. Congrats to all the winners tonight and all nominees from “The Help” to “The Hunger Games.”
