2012 MTV Movie Awards: The Recap

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!

  1. Who? It’s woo.

  2. Jennifer Aniston in Horrible Bosses: Best. Dirt bag. EVER!


  3. Great recap. I only saw a few of the movies but I pretty much agree with them.


  4. Good to be updated as I haven’t watch the awards night!.. :p Thanks for this!.. Go team Twilight!

  5. Delighted to see Emma Stone up there 🙂

  7. Johnny Depp is the best ! You spelled his name wrong but I forgive you 😛

    Great post!

  8. Kristen Stewart’s best kiss solo make out session was pretty weird. I kept thinking the people she called out were going to come on stage and make out with her. Charlize Theron would have been my first choice, not the Huntsman. Nice recap!

    Ok, I’m going to be the voice of dissention here but in a year that had movies like ‘Midnight in Paris’, ‘The Tree of Life’, and many more great films; it really makes me sad to see Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 1 get any recognition in a ‘Best of the Year’ list. Nice writeup but very disappointed in the film among the MTV crowd

    • Yeah, but the MTV Movie Awards is soley for pop culture favs I think. All the nominees are based off what’s happening at the moment amongst their demographic.

  11. So mad I missed it!!! But THANK YOU for the recap, now I can fast forward to the Twilight parts 🙂

  12. wasnt even aware this thing still existed

  13. Thanks for the re-cap…I didn’t get to see it on TV! I wish Twilight didn’t win though 😦

    Best movie awards show ever.

  15. Now I must see Horrible Bosses 🙂 Love Jennifer but I never got around to watching.

  16. Why did The Hunger Games not win Best Film?

  18. Thanks for the recap of the awards, completely missed them
    and congrats on being FP!

  19. I didn’t vote for movie of the year for the sheer fact that 4 out of the 5 were some of my favorite movies. First let it be known that I have been obsessed with Twilight, The Hunger Games, and Harry Potter (who I do not think got nearly enough recognition last night,) I have been reading the books (multiple times) before the movies were even mentioned for any of them. BUT I do not think that Hunger Games should have been up for a Movie of the Year award anyway, because all the other movies came out in 2011, and it came out just a few months ago. I was pretty upset because for this year so far Hunger Games has my vote for best movie of 2012, and it deserves a ton of recognition. (Of course Twilight hasn’t came out yet…lol.) Anyway, that was just my thought as I was watching the awards last night. Am I wrong?

  20. cant wait for breaking dawn @ (whoo!)

    As expected on Best Kiss for R. Pat and K. Stew; I never doubted them. Johnny Depp will always be a winner for me. 🙂

  38. I wrote about Johnny Depp’s performance with The Black Keys right after receiving the generation award. Wasn’t that cool?

  39. Great post! I love this since I missed this on TV.

  40. I did not watch but thanks for covering it.

    Russell’s material was kind of bland, Charlie Sheen was classic, Emma Stone was amazing (especially at those scenes where she was with Andrew Garfield), and the Johnny Depp moment was awesome- especially the montage of his movie roles!

    They’re the reasons I watched the show, the whole Twilight and Hunger Games taking most of the awards was predictable.

  42. ‘This blog is beautify my info and required details which really great matter of admiration and worth praising.Since i’ve received this blog my level of confidence improving day by day”

  43. I haven’t watched a good movie in a long time!

  44. Absolutely loved Aniston in Horrible Bosses! She makes a wicked girl seem like so much fun.

  45. I want to know what that guy said to mila kunis that pissed mark whalberg off! that was a great way to start off the show! love me some drama!

    • Ha, that’s funny! MTV asked him and he just said a heckler said something disrespectful. He didn’t give the deets on EXACTLY what but he said since he went to church that morning he refrained from smacking him. It MUST have been pretty rude!

  46. ugh Twilight! I was pretty obsessed at first with the books, it was like reading crack. About a year later, I picked them up again and thought to myself, “What was I thinking?” I have many issues with the series but I’ll just say the writing style drove me crazy!

    I think the Hunger Games deserved to win. It helps that the author Suzanne Collins adapted her own book to the screen and had written for tv before. But the movie was so good–from the screenplay, to the actors, to the acting… Just much better than Twilight in my opinion. 🙂

  47. NOT the part when Twilight won.

  48. Reblogged this on wincharles.

  49. 2011 was a terrible year in cinemas.

  50. I heart Johnny Depp… I still have to watch Hunger Games (I know I’m way behind on this!)

  51. I love the MTV awards but personally I am not a favorite of Russell Brand. I don’t think I am alone with this thought. Thanks for sharing.

  52. I didn’t see the awards. Johnny Deep certainly deserves the generation award, he is such a great actor (one of my faves) and sooooo nice to look at *drool*. I have to admit I have not seen the Hunger Games yet. It’s on my to watch list.

    i haven’t seen the mtv awards, but thanks for recaping it.

  56. Hunger Games! awesome. Jennifer Lawrence is flawless. I just recently watched the lastest x-men movie and saw she was in it. “whoa, huba huba!” lol….breakin dawn pt1 was alright. To much of a chic flick for me but as long as Kristen Stewart is in it, I’m all eyes. That snowwhite huntsman movie is going to be awesome. Action, violence, plus kristen stewart equals snowwhite huntsman pt2 please 🙂

  57. I didn’t watch it! In fact I haven’t even gotten around to look all the red carped action!!!

  58. thanks for sharing this recape

  59. The presentation of “The Dark Knight Rises” was beautiful, I can’t wait to see the film!
    Harry Potter had to win both BEST CAST and BEST FIGHT, but not BEST FILM (the books are more and more beautiful and magical that films). I didn’t want Twilight to win BEST MOVIE and BEST KISS, the books of the saga were charming, interesting, but the films are just meaningless and the actors (who in others films are pretty much good in acting) seem to have always the same expressions. According to BEST KISS, the winner love scene between the main characters (the’re kissing after they’re getting married) is cute but not so much to win BEST KISS!
    Do you remember when the winners were R. Gosling and R. Mc Adams in “The Notebook”? THAT was a KISS!
