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.

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.
