The results are in and sadly, not everyone goes home with an award. But they do probably all go home in some sort of limo — or a hybrid because stars love to be politically correct. Still, even though some people had to lose, the 2009 MTV Movie Awards was a night filled with fun, celebs and lots of great clips from movies past, present and future.
Some of the highly anticipated new movies viewers got a glimpse of during the show included The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra and Public Enemies. There were also the usual movie parodies and comedic bits featuring host Andy Samberg and a multitude of guest including Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, Sacha Baron Cohen as Bruno and a rather angry Eminem who proved he has no sense of humor by storming off the stage after a close encounter with a face down Bruno who had landed in his lap.
Twilight and its cast were the big winners, taking home 5 awards, with High School Musical 3: Senior Year and its stars in second with 2. Finally, Heath Ledger posthumously won the award for ‘Best Villain’ for his performance in The Dark Knight. Not a surprise but still, a fitting final tribute to an actor, and a human being, who died far too young.
