As always, this year’s MTV Movie Awards was two things: eye-rolling because of its results and entertaining in its own right.
We all know the awards themselves mean absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things (they might as well call it “The Twilight Awards”) but for the most part the show manages to be at least fun to watch (often that’s more than can be said for the Oscars).
In case you happened to miss the 2010 MTV Movie Awards don’t worry, as Screen Rant has you covered. We have here all the results from the awards, as well as four new clips for some pretty huge movies that are going to screens this year: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, The Last Airbender and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

MTV GENERATION AWARD

13 awards in total and Twilight gets five of them. You wouldn’t see that at the Oscars, would you?…
In all seriousness, although I don’t mind The Twilight Saga as much as a lot of people, I still don’t think any of the films should win these kinds of awards. I mean, Best Male Performance – where the hell was Jeff Bridges for Crazy Heart or Colin Firth for A Single Man? Two of the best performances of last year and they don’t even get a nomination.
A couple of things I think MTV got right was Anna Kendrick for Up in the Air and Zack Galifianakis for The Hangover – both stand-out performances from two great movies. Other awards like Best Scared-As-S**t and Best Kiss are a joke.
Moving on from the award winners, let’s get to the batch of new clips that premiered at the ceremony for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, The Last Airbender and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Check them out below (apologies as some of them you may only be able to view if you’re in the U.S.):
Although I never expect to be, every year I’m excited to see the next Harry Potter film come out, and based on that teaser clip/trailer I am now even more excited for Deathly Hallows. Eclipse I will end up seeing but am not overly excited about it, and both The Last Airbender and Scott Pilgrim look frickin’ awesome.
Oh, and in case you didn’t catch it, here’s Tom Cruise as producer Les Groosman from Tropic Thunder, totally working the crowd at the Movie Awards. Tom Cruise has not lost it (as a performer, at least…).
So did the right movies and people win at this year’s MTV Movie Awards, in your opinion? What did you think of Aziz Ansari as the host? And what do you make of these four new clips? Let us know in the comments below.
