On Sunday June 3, 2012 Russell Brand hosted the 2012 MTV Movie Awards. The night celebrating all things movies was expected to be filled with big and little surprises throughout the night and that it did!
Fun and Janelle Monae opened the show with a performance of “We Are Young”, following a typical monologue from Russell Brand. It was kind of awkward but nothing too hard to watch. The show rolled smoothly along with stars handing out awards and great performances. The jaw-dropping performance had to be ‘Generation Award’ winner Johnny Depp performing with The Black Keys.
A sneak peek for “The Dark Knight Rises” left Christian Bale getting choked up with a glimpse of Heath Ledger as he presented the clip along with other co-stars. The movie looks great and I’m sure it will be a box office hit!
To be honest everything else went a blur when “Twilight” won. My heart was beating so fast until the winners were called. THEY WON!!TWIHARDS UNITE!! Whoooo!! I admit I was a little worried but one can never underestimate the power of “Twilight” fans! Although the film was only nominated in two categories they swept both and for that I am ecstatic! Twi won for both ‘Best Kiss’ and the coveted ‘Movie of the Year’. Four years in a row for both categories, I’m just saying!
Congrats to all the winners for the night!
