MTV Movie Awards A Total Joke, Again
MTV is a champion at proving year after year that it’s not the music powerhouse that it used to be, and reached a tremendous low by scaling the reefy dregs of the deepest, darkest, dankest and most mainstream of offences by naming Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 as the film of the year. Our one-star review gives us an idea on how we feel, but we’re not the only ones – Metacritic give it a 45/100 score while review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes beat that with 25%.
The votes are tallied as a public poll (which somehow ignored everyone who agrees with us that, while you can argue all you want that the Twilight Saga‘s books are riveting as hell, the movies are piss-poor bundles of shite) and elsewhere gongs were handed out, primarily to The Hunger Games, but that’s nothing to be proud of, as they won awards in a ceremony that declared Breaking Dawn is a better film than The Artist, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, Drive, 50/50, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo etc.
Elsewhere, both best male and female performances went to the two from The Hunger Games (that’ll be Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence), who also won Best Fight and the film’s Elizabeth Banks picked up Best On-Screen Transformation, whatever that means.
Russell Brand unofficially racked up the award for Biggest Total Embarrassment to the Commonwealth by getting rejected by Charlize Theron while she and her Prometheus screen partner Michael Fassbender went for Most Inefficient Stage Fight Sequence.
