MTV Movie Awards Goes Big for ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Silver Linings Playbook’

avengersThe MTV Movie Awards have officially (almost anyway…) moved away from the Twilight series into new territory with some of their choices that were seen in last night’s ceremony that hosted by Rebel Wilson, now an MTV Movie Award winner herself.  With sketches that included a wink from Oscar host James Franco, the show started off with a singing Wilson in a female-Iron Man suit and it couldn’t be funnier.

What’s disappointing is so many stars, and winners, were not in attendance.  Granted, I don’t think this is the most anticipated party for a celebrity, especially for stars like Jennifer Lawrence who went through the awards season hull and is now filming one of many upcoming projects.  Marvel’s The Avengers was the big winner of the night winning three Popcorn statues for Best Movie, Best Fight, and Best Villain for Tom Hiddleston.  David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook captured just as many awards for Best Male and Female Performances for Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence.  The two also won a dual award for Best Kiss, nudging out the cuteness and beauty of The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Moonrise Kingdom couples.

The full winners are listed below.  I think it’s safe to say we are OFFICALLY done with 2012 films from now on.   If you’re in the post-awards season funk, don’t forget to vote in our Awards Circuit Community Awards for Year 1999.
