Watch MTV Movie Awards
The MTV Movie Awards are aired every year on MTV's own network. The movie awards show often gives acknowledgement to movies that may fly under the radar of more traditional movie awards shows. The fan power and popularity of a film is certainly factored in when nominees are chosen for each year's awards show. MTV chooses the nominees for each category but that is as far as they will go in the process. After their nominee choices are made it is left up to the fans to decide who each year's winners will be. Fans can vote online through MTV's website to make their choices and they can vote as many times as they would like. This is another way that fan power really pushes the choices for each year's winners.
The annual awards show is almost guaranteed to have world premiere theatrical trailers for some of the most eagerly anticipated movies that are close to releasing. Many film and movie extras come on throughout the show. It is also a great place to watch the stars of those same movies make appearances. The stars seem to let their hair down a little bit since it is a more casual and relaxed environment.
The MTV Movie Awards not only have more out of the ordinary films for their awards but they are fairly out of the box in other areas as well. Some of their original categories for nominees are Best On-Screen Dirtbag, Best Kiss, Best Fight and Best Hero. They choose controversially funny hosts and have a good time poking fun at other films through the use of parodies. This is a night where stars and fans alike really get to let loose and have some fun.
While the awards really do let the fans take the reins and everyone involved has a great deal of fun, it is not always family friendly fun. Often there is sexual content, foul language, violence and more than a good dose of crude humor. If you are considering watching these shows or allowing your children to do so you should keep that in mind. Many times activities from the previous nights awards show are buzzing over the internet the next morning with surrounding controversy. With this information in hand you can make a better choice whether or not to watch the MTV Movie Awards.

The younger generation (the small age range between the Teen Choice Awards and the Emmy’s) has spoken! The list of the MTV Movie Award winners is finally here. The winner of Movie of the Year was: “The Avengers”! It beat out “Django Unchained”, “The Silver Linings Playbook”, “Ted”, and “The Dark Knight Rises”. Best Female Performance goes to Jennifer Lawrence for “Silver Linings Playbook”. She beat out Anne Hathaway, Mila Kunis, Emma Watson, and Rebel Wilson.
Though they get their due for having some surprisingly interesting moments, Sunday night's 2012 MTV Movie Awards put numbers that left something to be desired. The carefree atmosphere is a welcome break every year from awards galas built on smuggery and decorum, but even Russell Brand's natural unpredictable-raunch factor didn't bolster ratings. Deadline reports that last night's show delivered a 2.8 rating among the targeted 12-34 year old adult demographic, on the backs of 3.
Ah, the MTV movie awards. The general air of "who the f*ck cares" permeates the event and creates the opportunity for plenty of crazy moments year-in and year-out. But this year, it was more about the sentimental moments, as more than one person got teary-eyed on stage. Don't you worry, there were plenty of crazy moments too... but some of the best moments from the show this year were surprisingly sincere. So, in balancing heartfelt acceptance speeches with being humped by a fireman, here are the five best moments from the 2012 MTV Movie Awards: Archery is Back: Jennifer Lawrence wasn't available to attend the show (because she's pretty much the busiest actress in Hollywood right now), but she did have time to shoot a quick segment about how archery is totally making a comeback thanks in part to her role as Katniss in "The Hunger Games.
As you may know, the "MTV Movie Awards" air tonight. And as you may know, they tend to be pretty fun thanks to drunk celebrities, outrageous moments, and premieres of big trailers and movie clips. Last year brought us the first teaser for "The Hunger Games," while this year will show us new footage from "The Dark Knight Rises." But before we get to the actual awards show, there's the pre-show red carpet event. The usual MTV News gang will be there, including Sway, Josh Horowitz and Jim Cantiello, but this year they will be joined by "The Vampire Diaries" star Kat Graham (aka Bonnie), who will act as the fashion correspondent.
Meet your 2012 MTV Movie Awards host - Russell Brand. The British stand-up, actor, ex-Mr. Katy Perry and star of his own FX comedy series "Brand X" is no MTV awards show newbie. He previously helmed the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards before his "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and "Get Him To The Greek" movie roles earned him a degree of notoriety. He's already guaranteed a spectacle "more impressive than 'The Avengers'," Reuters reports. "With his amazing ability to span the full spectrum of comedy from the most high to low brow, Russell's smart, unpredictable wit uniquely connects him to our audience," MTV President Stephen Friedman said.
Tonys, schmonies. Only one award-nominations announcement matters today, and that's the one that includes hopefuls for Best On-Screen Dirtbag, damn it. With the Golden Popcorn nominees announced today, voting on the 2012 MTV Movie Awards has officially opened at MovieAwards.MTV.com and stays open until June 2. "The Hunger Games" and "Bridesmaids" each earned eight nominations, and actually go toe-to-toe in a few categories including Movie of the Year, Best Female Performance (Kristin Wiig versus Jennifer Lawrence), Breakthrough Performance (Melissa McCarthy versus Liam Hemsworth) and Best Cast.
Are the MTV Movie Awards trying to give other movies a chance to beat "Twilight?" According to THR, the teen-dominated awards show will be making a few changes to the voting this year. The first big change includes ditching some of the old categories and putting in new ones: Best Villain, Biggest Badass Star, Best Scared-As-Sh*t Performance, Best Jaw-Dropping Moment and Best Line from a movie will no longer be categories. They will be replaced with five new ones, bordering between serious and silly: Best Music, Best Onscreen Transformation, Best Cast, Best Gut-Wrenching Performance, and Best Onscreen Dirtbag.
Update (1/1): It is now being confirmed that sources told E! News the official name is 'Blue Ivy Carter'. Beyonce and Jay-Z are finally proud parents of a new baby girl named 'Blue Ivy Carter'! TMZ confirmed that the rockstar couple gave birth on Saturday, January 7th, 2012 at Lennix Hill Hospital in New York City. It's being reported that the child was birthed by c-section with proud papa Jay-Z by her side. In true Hollywood spirit, friends shared the news with the world by sending out birth announcements via Twitter.
When Reese Witherspoon accepted her Generation Award at the MTV Movie Awards the other night, her speech was mostly about being grateful for her career, family, and friends (and calling Robert Pattinson a motherf***er). But she also went on a slight tangent about being a woman in Hollywood, and things got a little awkward. "I just want to say to the girls out there: I know it's cool to be bad. Like, I get it. But it's also possible to make it in Hollywood without a reality show," said Witherspoon.
