MTV Movie Awards 'Best Kiss' Sandra Bullock & Scarlett Johansson + Robert Pattinson Tops National Movie Awards

by S. Montgomery

June 9 update: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Avatar, Taylor Lautner, Tom Cruise as Tom Cruise and as Les Grossman, teaser trailers for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and The Last Airbender, Sandra Bullock kissing Scarlett Johansson, Betty White talking about her ovaries, Zac Efron, Bradley Cooper, Paris Hilton, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, Cristina Aguilera, Aziz Ansari (singing a tribute to James Cameron's Avatar), the Jersey Shore cast, Snoop Dogg, Peter Facinelli, and lots of expletives. Did all that translate into solid ratings or not?

Well, that depends on where and how you look at the figures. According to some reports, the 2010 MTV Movie Awards were watched by 16.4 million people, an increase of 2 percent compared to last year. Others claim that ratings were down 13 percent. Who to believe?

James Hibberd provides some illuminating data at The Hollywood Reporter. Hibberd explains that despite strong competition from sports programming on other channels, on average the 2010 MTV Movie Awards were watched by 5.8 million viewers on MTV, MTV2, and VH1 – or about the same number as last year. However, at MTV alone, the drop-off rate was 13 percent. That's the figure being provided by some outlets.

Among female teens, largely thanks to The Twilight Saga: New Moon, the MTV Movie Awards scored the show's best ratings since 2004. Among persons between the ages of 12-34, the ceremony averaged a 4.1 rating, the second best since 2004 according to Nikki Finke at Deadline.com.

Now, other outlets have been reporting that 16.4 million viewers watched the MTV Movie Awards. Yet, that figure is supposed to represent the total number of people who watched at least a – one-minute – segment of the show on MTV, MTV2, and VH1. That's indeed up 2 percent from last year.

Also, MTV has apologized for all the expletives used on the show. Instead, they should have apologized instead for all the offensive bleeps.

June 7, '10, update: Sandra Bullock received an enthusiastic standing ovation at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. Bullock accepted the MTV Generation Award from Bradley Cooper, with whom she co-starred in the flop All About Steve; Betty White, who had a supporting role in the hit The Proposal; and Scarlett Johansson, the wife of Bullock's The Proposal co-star Ryan Reynolds.

I don't know whether the crowd's enthusiasm was because she's Sandra Bullock – one of the stars of Speed, Crash, Miss Congeniality, and The Blind Side – or because Bullock, who has the reputation of being an All-Around Great Gal, has recently been the off-screen star of a family melodrama in which she played – or rather, the media portrayed her as – the victim of a selfish, ruthless, cheating, monstrous husband.

Bullock had a few good moments on stage, but the best one was her turning to Scarlett Johansson and saying, “This is so weird, Scarlett. I love you and all, but this is really uncomfortable … Why are you here?"

The girl-on-girl kissing that followed was anticlimactic – much too brief. Bullock did better with Meryl Streep at the Broadcast Film Critics Awards. In fact, someone has remarked that Bullock should have kissed Betty White, instead. I totally agree.

I also think that Bradley Cooper should have planted a big one on Zac Efron's mouth. Have they ever had a guy-on-guy kiss on stage at the MTV Movie Awards? If not, they should.

Betty White, who supported Sandra Bullock in the hit comedy The Proposal; Bradley Cooper, who co-starred with Bullock in the widely panned comedy All About Steve, which earned Bullock a Razzie Award for the year's worst performance by an actress; and Scarlett Johansson, the wife of Ryan Reynolds, Bullock's The Proposal co-star, presented the MTV Generation Award to Bullock.

The actress had been keeping herself far away from the public arena since her widely publicized separation from husband Jesse James right after her Best Actress Oscar win for The Blind Side. True, Bullock did make a surprise appearance at a minor awards show the evening before the MTV Movie Awards, but Sunday was her “official” return to the spotlight.

Betty White, whose ovaries were recently named “historical monuments,” praised Bullock for her performances in various films, including her “daring and race-bending portrayal of Stevie Wonder in The Blind Side.”

Bullock's laughter looked camera ready, but perhaps she was really enjoying herself.

My favorite homage came from Scarlett Johansson: A simple “No,” in answer to Bradley Cooper's question if she wanted to say something in Bullock's honor.

June 6 update

Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1

At the 2010 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, June 6, a new clip from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 will be introduced. Also at the ceremony, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner will present an exclusive clip from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

Joining the list of previously announced presenters – among them Zac Efron, Tom Cruise, and Cameron Diaz – are Scarlett Johansson, Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Betty White, Jessica Alba, Michael Cera, Eva Mendes, T.I., and Kieran Culkin.

Eclipse wolf pack member Chaske Spencer will serve as the official MTV International 2010 MTV Movie Awards guest red-carpet correspondent.

Eclipse will hit theaters on June 30. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 will open Nov. 19.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I's teaser trailer, featuring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Bonnie Wright was shown for the first time at the MTV Movie Awards. The awards ceremony was held on Sunday in Universal City, in the San Fernando Valley.

In addition to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I, the MTV Movie Awards also featured a clip with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and, in the pre-show, a teaser trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender.

There's no Karate Kid teaser trailer or clip that I saw, but MTV Movie Award watchers did get to watch Jaden Smith break Tom Cruise's Les Grossman's arm while Will Smith looked in disbelief.

Directed by David Yates, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I also features Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Ralph Fiennes, Tom Felton, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, John Hurt, Ciaran Hinds, Miranda Richardson, Timothy Spall, David Thewlis, Imelda Staunton, and Julie Walters.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I opens Nov. 19.

Les Grossman makes movie history by telling the young Tom Cruise of Risky Business that “teens love [unclear expletive] ass.” He then rips Cruise's pants so the young actor's round butt will be visible under his tight white underwear.

This MTV promo has several bleeps. I hate those because, for one thing, I find them so useless. For the most part, anyone can tell exactly which expletive has been bleeped. And if we know, why bleep them? It's not like we don't hear the word in our heads, whether we're 5 or 50 or 500 years old.

But this one bleep got me thinking. What does Grossman tell Cruise about teens, love, and male asses? All kinds of naughty things crossed my head. As they say, censorship makes the imagination run wild.

The 2010 MTV Movie Awards will take place next Sunday, June 6, in Universal City. Aziz Ansari will host the ceremony airing at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.

Performers at the ceremony include Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera, and Snoop Dogg. Sandra Bullock will receive the MTV Generation Award.

MTV Movie Awards presenters include Tom Cruise, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Cameron Diaz, and Anna Kendrick.

Also, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Steve Carell, Aubrey Plaza, Jessica Biel, Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Rob Schneider, Jason Segel, Chris Rock, David Spade, Russell Brand, Miranda Cosgrove, Diddy, Jonah Hill, and Shaun White.

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart MTV Movie Awards 2010

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will be sitting – almost – next to each other at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, to be held on Sunday, June 6, at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City (that's in the San Fernando Valley, just over the hills from Hollywood/Silver Lake).

There's an empty seat (see photo above) between the two The Twilight Saga: New Moon MTV Movie Award nominees, though I'm assuming someone (or some “nobody” as far as the TV cameras are concerned) will be plopped in that seat between Pattinson and Stewart. The two New Moon stars will be joined by Taylor Lautner when they go onstage to introduce a new The Twilight Saga: Eclipse clip.

MTV Generation Award recipient Sandra Bullock will be sitting in the front row. Pattinson and Stewart will be behind her. And you can see Jessica Alba behind them.

The MTV Movie Awards ceremony, hosted by Aziz Ansari, will be aired on MTV beginning at 9 p.m. ET.

As posted on the MTV Movie Awards website, one of Aziz Ansari's ideas to get the show going is the following: “How bout [sic] this time, Tom Hanks whips his balls out? Just onstage, whips it out there. That would be pretty crazy, right? That would get on Twitter!"

Well, maybe.

Voting is open to the public at MTV.com.

Robert Pattinson, New Moon

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner have been announced as presenters at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse trio will introduce a new, exclusive clip from their upcoming movie on Sunday, June 6, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

According to MTV, in a mere two years Pattinson and Stewart have already become MTV award show veterans. They, along with Twilight's Cam Gigandet (the tracker vampire out to get Bella Swan), were present at the MTV Movie Awards in 2008 to introduce an exclusive Twilight clip on MTV's preshow.

Pattinson, Stewart, and Gigandet were joined by Taylor Lautner at the MTV Video Music Awards three months later. The quartet was there to introduce the Twilight soundtrack band Paramore. According to Kara Warner's report, “twilighters were furious with host Russell Brand for allegedly cutting Pattinson off before he finished his line in the introduction.”

At the 2009 MTV Movie Awards, Twilight won five awards, including Best Movie. Stewart, Pattinson, and Lautner took the stage to introduce the first The Twilight Saga: New Moon teaser trailer, which featured both Pattinson and Lautner (but not Stewart) shirtless.

At the 2009 Video Music Awards, Pattinson, Stewart and Lautner returned to present the final New Moon trailer.

All three performers are up for a few MTV Movie Awards this year, including best performance by an actor/actress, best kiss, and global superstar.

Bradley Cooper and Jessica Biel introduced the Best Kiss Award at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards held in Universal City. Nominees included Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning for The Runaways; Stewart once again, this time with Robert Pattinson, in The Twilight Saga: New Moon Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds for The Proposal; Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift for Valentine's Day; and Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana for Avatar.

Needless to say, the Stewart-Pattinson smooth in New Moon took the prize.

In the audience, there was something called a “kiss camera” (or something like along those lines), which showed famous audience members kissing while the crowd screamed in ecstasy (or in agony, it wasn't clear). Among those kissing in the theater were Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens, and Russell Brand and Johan Hill, whose Get Him to the Greek has opened to okay business this weekend.

Edward Cullen touches Bella Swan: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart in Chris Weitz's The Twilight Saga: New Moon

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will present an exclusive, never-before-seen sequence from David Slade's The Twilight Saga: Eclipse at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. Additionally, Eclipse cast member Chaske Spencer (the werewolf Sam Uley) will be the official MTV International “guest” red carpet correspondent.

Aziz Ansari will host the MTV Movie Awards, which will feature performances by Christina Aguilera and Katy Perry.

In addition to Pattinson, Stewart, and Lautner, other presenters include Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Anna Kendrick, and Steve Carell.

Plus, Jessica Biel, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Rob Schneider, Jason Segel, Chris Rock, David Spade, Russell Brand, Miranda Cosgrove, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Jonah Hill, and Shaun White.

Pattinson, Stewart, and Lautner are up for several MTV Movie Awards for Chris Weitz's The Twilight Saga: New Moon, including best performance by an actor/actress, best kiss, and global superstar. Eclipse, the third installment of the Twilight series, opens on June 30.

The MTV Movie Awards will be aired live from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City at 9 p.m. ET on Sunday, June 6. Voting for their favorites, Avatar, New Moon, Alice in Wonderland or whatever, is open to the public.

Sandra Bullock, Tim McGraw, The Blind Side

Sandra Bullock will receive the MTV Generation Award at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards on June 6. That will mark Bullock's first official public appearance since her split from husband Jesse James became a Global News Event shortly after Bullock won both a Best Actress Oscar (for the drama The Blind Side) and a Worst Actress Razzie (for the comedy All About Steve) in early March.

As a result of her off-screen drama, Bullock is the only film personality around who could outshine MTV Movie Award nominees Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner, the stars of Best Movie nominee The Twilight Saga: New Moon.

In fact, more recently Bullock has made new headlines by both filing for divorce and adopting a child. According to an exhibitors' poll, the actress was the top box office draw in the United States in 2009. (The Proposal, co-starring Ryan Reynolds and Betty White, was Bullock's other '09 hit.)

Cynics (or just plain realists) will say that Bullock's award is merely an MTV ratings ploy. MTV says the actress will be honored “for her riveting and diverse contributions to the film industry and for entertaining generations of the MTV audience over the last two decades.”

Bullock will be the first female recipient to receive the MTV Generation Award. She'll be joining the likes of Tom Cruise, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Mike Myers, and Jim Carrey.

Hosted by Aziz Ansari at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, the 2010 MTV Movie Awards will be broadcast live on the East Coast at 9 p.m. Those on the West Coast will have to wait until 9 p.m. PT to watch the show.

Funny? Well, that's Justin Bieber eating chips, Aziz Ansari talking while watching a “4D” version of The Hurt Locker, and Jeremy Renner in the role of the tough-talking Iraq War soldier who gets a phone call on his cell - which has a ringtone that sounds a lot like Justin Bieber's hit song “Baby.”

Another 2010 MTV Movie Awards promo features Robert Pattinson and Tom Cruise as Les Grossman, the vulgar Hollywood mega mogul. There have been other MTV Movie Award promos as well, featuring the likes of Sarah Silverman and Zac Efron with his head attached to the body of a squirrel. Whether you'll find those spots funny or tragic depends on your sense of humor.

And in a third MTV Movie Awards promo, Kristen Bell, Diddy and Zac Efron talk about Aziz Ansari's early years, saving lives by dressing himself like a pumpkin on Halloween, getting stuck under his family's television set for six years, and other types of personal tragedies. Luckily, Ansari was able to recover (possibly after years of intensive therapy) and will be hosting the 2010 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, June 6.

The 2010 MTV Movie Awards will take place on Sunday, June 6, at 9 p.m. Sandra Bullock will receive the MTV Generation Award.

Chris Weitz's The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which is up for several MTV Movie Awards early next month, was voted Best Fantasy at the British equivalent of the US-based People's Choice Awards: the National Movie Awards, held this evening in London.

Robert Pattinson, who plays the lovestruck vampire Edward Cullen in Chris Weitz's The Twilight Saga: New Moon – Kristen Stewart's human Bella Swan is the object of his affection – won the National Movie Award for Best Performance. Pattinson, in Los Angeles shooting Francis Lawrence's Water for Elephants with Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz, sent his thank-you via satellite (or perhaps it was a pre-recorded video).

A third award for the Twilight franchise went to David Slade's The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which received the award for Most Anticipated Summer Movie.

Another movie franchise also fared well at the National Movie Awards. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was voted Best Family Movie, while the Harry Potter series itself received the Special Recognition Award. Both Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe attended the ceremony.

Tom Cruise, whose movie career spans nearly three decades, was awarded the Screen Icon award.

Starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, Sherlock Holmes was the Best Action Movie / Thriller, while The Time Traveler's Wife was the Best Breakthrough Movie.

The list of presenters is somewhat long, but there are a number of glaring omissions: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner, the stars of the most nominated film, The Twilight Saga: New Moon; Avatar's Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana; and both Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, whose movie The Proposal is also up for several awards.

Here are the MTV Movie Awards presenters (so far): Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, and Academy Award nominee Anna Kendrick.

Also, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Steve Carell, Aubrey Plaza, Jessica Biel, Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Rob Schneider, Jason Segel, Chris Rock, David Spade, Russell Brand, Miranda Cosgrove, Diddy, Jonah Hill, and Shaun White.

MTV Movie Awards online: Red Carpet live video streaming

Among those expected to attend this year's MTV Movie Awards ceremony in Universal City, northwest of downtown Los Angeles, today, June 6, 2010, are Jessica Alba, Tom Cruise, Taylor Lautner, Zac Efron, Sandra Bullock, Adam Sandler, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lopez, Scarlett Johansson, Vanessa Hudgens, Paul Rudd, and Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. Below is a live video feed to the MTV Movie Awards 2010. Enjoy it while it lasts:

2010 MTV Movie Awards ceremony: Best Kiss

Bradley Cooper and Jessica Biel introduced the Best Kiss Award at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. Nominees included Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning for The Runaways; Stewart once again, this time with Robert Pattinson, for The Twilight Saga: New Moon Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds for The Proposal; Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift for Valentine's Day; and Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana for Avatar. Needless to say, the Kristen Stewart-Robert Pattinson smooch in New Moon took the prize.

In the audience, there was something called a “kiss camera” (or something along those lines), which showed famous audience members kissing while the crowd screamed in ecstasy (or in agony, it wasn't clear). Among those kissers and kissees were Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens, and Russell Brand and Jonah Hill, whose Get Him to the Greek has opened to okay business this weekend.

Les Grossman (Tom Cruise) and Jennifer Lopez dance number

Les Grossman – Tom Cruise's notoriously crass Hollywood mega mogul first seen in Tropic Thunder – danced with Jennifer Lopez, last seen opposite Alex O'Loughlin in The Back-up Plan, during the MTV Movie Awards musical introduction, which also featured Ken Jeong, Ed Helms, and Ludacris.

In several MTV Movie Award promos, Les Grossman berated the likes of Robert Pattinson for daring to wash his “filthy” hair, Taylor Lautner for threatening not to show up at the awards ceremony, and even Tom Cruise himself – back in the early '80s, when Cruise was about to become a sensation following the release of Risky Business.

Tom Cruise will next be seen in Knight and Day, co-starring Cameron Diaz.

MTV Movie Award winners

Among this year's MTV Movie Award winners were Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson for their star-crossed lovers in Chris Weitz's The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Twilight alumna Anna Kendrick as the year's Breakout Star (probably for her performance in Up in the Air), and Rain for his ass-kicking skills in Ninja Assassin. Rain's vehicle was hardly a box office hit in the United States, but the performer is a huge star in much of East Asia.

Additionally, Robert Pattinson received the MTV Movie Awards' Global Superstar of the Year trophy. Pattinson is currently playing opposite Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz in Francis Lawrence's circus drama Water for Elephants, which is mostly being shot in Southern California.

Starring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner, David Slade's The Twilight Saga: Eclipse opens in the United States and about a dozen other countries on June 30, 2010. The Los Angeles world premiere will be held at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 24. Melissa Rosenberg adapted Stephenie Meyer's bestselling novel.

Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz introduce Best Picture

During the Best Movie Award presentation, people found it funny when someone yelled at presenter Tom Cruise, “Show me the money!” – a line from his 1996 Oscar-nominated drama Jerry Maguire. Unfortunately, I missed the bleeped segment of Cameron Diaz's remark. What part of Tom Cruise's body did she think the yelling guy wanted to see?

In any case, much more interesting that was taking place onstage was looking at some of the reaction shots of celebrities in the audience. Some looked bored to tears, others were clapping unenthusiastically, others yet were caught checking out the celebrities.

MTV Movie Awards' Best Film 'New Moon': Peter Facinelli [bleep] acceptance speech

Peter Facinelli, who plays the Cullen family patriarch in the Twilight movies, used the word “fucking” in his speech more often than I've used it all year to date.

While Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Anna Kendrick, Elizabeth Reaser, and other Twilight cast members looked on, Facinelli fucking-thanked his director Chris Weitz, the series' screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, and so on.

Facinelli refrained to fucking-thanking only writer Stephenie Meyer: “I'm not gonna curse with you because you're a Mormon.” Actually, I take that back. He didn't say “fucking” before thanking Justin Bieber or the Twilight fandom. (Perhaps they're all Mormons as well.)

What is sad is that the kids/adults from Harry Potter and Twilight are winning anything at all. They are winning awards over real actors with real talent. The stars of Harry Potter are trying to break free from the Potter image now. All three young actors have made R rated movies where they have appeared naked. They basically have no careers ahead of them. Just more lost child stars. At least the girl is attending Harvard to make something of herself. The Twilight group face the same fate. When the movies are over so will be their careers. Patternson is trying to make other movies - however they have all bombed because he cannot act.(Except as a vampire.) Stewart made a feeble attempt to play Joan Jett. That movie also bombed. Lautner might make it past, the pretty boy stage we will have to wait and see. Teenage girls around the globe are enjoying these vampire flicks - yet when these young stars play other parts these same girls just don't care. They are all just more child or young pretty stars that will all suffer in the end. It is just a very sad thing to witness.

I am a twilight fan and I think all the actors and actress are great. They seem to put all they've got to make Stephane Mayer's book come alive and I love watching them. Vampires and Wolfs are the greatest scene besides the love triange complications with the main trio.

I voted for Kristen and Dakota for best kiss and plan to tweet and vote every day. I love Twilight, but Edward and Bella in New Moon were awful. I wish Kristen was nominated for best actress for TR, but since she's not, I'm forced to vote for Bella Swan. I'm voting Taylor L. for best male actor simply because he was in most of the movie and went through a metamorphosis. My global superstar vote is undecided. Johnny Depp should win, but I'll probably vote for Kristen because she's the only woman nominated and I love her. I'm voting New Moon for best movie because I hated Avatar and the fanboys will vote for The Hangover. The Awards should just be called the Twilight Movie Awards at this point. Oh and I'm also voting for Anna Kendrick

I am a big fan of the Twilight Saga books with an exception of the last half of book 4. Last year I voted Twilight in almost every category. This year, however, Twilight Saga New Moon was so lackluster that the only thing related to the franchise that I voted for was Robert Pattinson Global Superstar. Most of my votes went to the The Hangover, one of the best comedies in the last twenty years with Ken Jeong for Villian and WTF Moment. Gave two votes for Avatar for Best Kiss and Fight Scene and Sam Worthington for Bad A** performance. There is no doubt Sam ruled at the box office.
