This year, the big movies challenge the purpose of teen flick parody, Not Another Teen Movie, as the hot choices at MTV’s Movie Awards were Twilight and High School Musical.
Twilight, who had seven nominations, had fans cheering with gusto as stars Robert Pattinson and Cam Gigandet picked up the golden popcorn trophy for best fight.
"I guess I should just say that in reality Cam would have beaten me hands down, so thank you to my stunt double," Pattinson said during his acceptance speech.
Pattinson also picked up the award for Breakthrough Male.
Hosted by Andy Samberg, the show began with a series of movie spoofs such as Twilight, The Reader, and Slumdog Millionaire. Samberg's first words after Justin Timberlake introduced him were, "rule number one: it's cool to fart in here. So if you need to fart, just let it rip. Leighton Meester, I'm looking at you!"
The evening continued with stellar performances from Kings of Leon and Eminem, who sang "Crack a Bottle" from his latest album entitled, Relapse.
Eminem had quite the shocking experience as the outrageous Sacha Baron Cohen made his appearance by being suspended from the ceiling, wearing chaps. He fell on Eminem's lap, causing the rapper to storm out of the auditorium in irritation.
The MTV Movie Awards also gave the audience a sneak peek into upcoming films including Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, New Moon, and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.
